Weekly Wrap Up - Spring Break
28 Mar 2017
Skiing some fresh (not always) POW or swimming some pristine (also not always) beach? Those are usually the ways to spend Spring Break, right? The irony around Spring Break is usually the season itself isn’t enjoyed over the week-long vacation holding its namesake. Many people migrate to some other destination which is either still wintry or summer-like, which on a rainy day like today, we can’t blame them.
This week we’re getting our own Spring Break! Well, kinda. While we’re working Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, Friday’s day off has us hollerin’ like a frat boy who barely made it through midterms.
What will we be doing with our 3-day spring break weekend? From the looks of the weather, we’ll either be spending a day in ski traffic to the country, or keeping it local al la Gene Kelly in the city.
Either way, Spring Break 2017, we’re tuning up for you. Lalalalalalaaaaa…memememememeeeeee….dooo-beee-do-be-doooo….
