Get Ready For Big PortSide BlueBQ And Support Our Waterfront


Picture 13

I don't know about you, dear Reader, but I am going to stay right here for the 4th of July week-end. Forget trying to get out of he city without getting stuck in traffic. Instead, its going to be backyard barbecues with friends and taking advantage of an empty city. Besides, there are so many can't -miss events planed for this special week-end. Like this one below, right here on the waterfront. Read on:
