Tomorrow is a day that only comes once every four years: Leap Day! To me, Leap Day means an extra day to both get caught up on work and have some fun. These are two things that can easily be accomplished downtown.
Here’s a fun fact: I cannot get work done at home. There are simply too many distractions and temptations. Pretty much every Saturday and Sunday morning you can find me at a downtown coffee shop sipping on a honey latte, eating a snack and cranking out my work. That’s where you’ll find me during the first half of Leap Day. I like to mix it up, so before I head out, I usually check out the Downtown Coffee Trail to see what shop I’m vibing with that morning.
By mid-afternoon, it’s time for me to tap out of the homework world and do something to loosen up. I like to head over to Organic Sandwich Company and get a delicious sandwich (on pretzel bread, of course) and eat my lunch while I walk around. Now that the sun is (finally) starting to come out, I have been trying to find all the hidden sculptures and murals around downtown. There is nothing better than taking in the day with some fresh air and finding inspiration in all the beautiful art around the district.
In the evening I will meet up with some friends to grab dinner at one of favorite restaurants (think Mountain Sun, T|aco and West Flanders). We’ll catch up over yummy food and a drink then figure out what to do next. I personally love to end my night with live music which is always an easy thing to find downtown! For Leap Day, my pals and I will head over to Bohemian Biergarten for a free concert featuring Clay Rose of Gasoline Lollipops, with Adam Perry on drums and Greg Schochet of the Hi*Beams on guitar.
I honestly can’t think of a better way to spend my extra day. I hope you all find a way as good as this to spend your Leap Day!
Until next time,
