It’s That Time Again.

Well, we made it through another work week and just a little bit closer to that future we’ve all been dreaming about.

Wait, which future is that, exactly? Well, let’s just say it involves drones delivering doughnuts the way a doughnut company in Denver tested doing so this week.

We truly are living fascinating times, aren’t we?

But, hey, there’s still plenty to be excited about when it comes to the future. Take, for instance, the below list we’ve compiled of events happening around town in your immediate future. We predict you’re gonna spent the next few minutes skimming it!
