Could it be possible that next week marks the end of February and start of March? It seems only yesterday I was making my New Year’s Resolutions (all have been abandoned by now). No matter the date, however, ThurstonTalk always has a list full of ideas for weekend fun for any season. This weekend is no different with razor clam digs, amazing theater productions, workshops and more. For a full listing of events, visit the ThurstonTalk events calendar here.
