If you look in the mirror and see the image of Jack Nicholson’s character in The Shining staring back at you with that crazed look and greasy hair, it is entirely possible that you are suffering from cabin fever. Go ahead and take a moment to regroup: shower, shampoo, shave where necessary, put on some clean clothes, and then bundle up. That shiny thing in your garage is your car, get the keys, grab your wallet and get in the car!
Destination – Old Town! There is always something interesting to do, people to see and good things to eat. Pop in to Aggie Mae’s for a sweet treat and some hot coffee. If you haven’t checked out our neighbor, Meat, plan on stopping in for lunch – you've got to love a restaurant that has a name that promises no surprises. Well, maybe one surprise …surprisingly good meaty food to eat.
The galleries in Old Town always deliver interesting arty things to see and buy. Katalyst, Absolute, Creole, and Tallulah’s Folly and are all doing their part to elevate our local arts and culture scene.
If you are really adventurous you can poke around in Love Betty or Lamb’s Gate to find that mid-century mod treasure or just the right little piece of furniture to breathe new life into your home decor.
If your therapeutic outing does not include retail purchases, you could try stretching some muscles at Hilltop Yoga (touch the top your leg, underneath that squishy stuff that’s muscle you feel). Or, just stop in to see the ladies of Grace and October Moon because visiting with them will change your day, change your attitude and change your mind. If you are still feeling a little fuzzy try a little art therapy at Haze Ceramic Gallery, or if you don’t feel like making something maybe Haze will let you go out back and smash some castoffs.
