One thing I enjoy doing, on weekends where nothing is planned, is searching online to see what cheap/free events are going on in the city. Last summer, this is how I came across the National Hamburger Festival. I had no idea there was such a thing! We went with Mark’s parents, watched the boys dance in the street, ate some good burgers, listened to a band…it was fun! Last week, my mother-in-law reminded me that the festival was coming up, and we decided to make this a family tradition.
This year we went for lunch instead of dinner, and it was much less crowded. The only downside was that the music wasn’t as good.
