You may be stuck inside, but you can do more than just binge-watch shows or stare at the wall. Plenty of local businesses are already adapting to what’s going on right now, offering online alternatives to regular services. We’re going to use this blog to keep you updated and what’s happening while we’re all keeping our community healthy through social distancing. If you know about anything that isn’t on this page, please let us know.

This Week: March 26–April 2

March 26: Chalk Walk

Emerald Park, 2–5 p.m.

Emerald Park residents will be stepping out on Thursday to chalk the sidewalks with encouraging messages to keep us #417strong. Don't live nearby? Organize your own neighborhood Chalk Walk!

March 27: Virtual Formal Dinner

6:30–8 p.m.
