One Last Weekend

Goodbye Summer my old friend. Our time together has to end. Another school year is starting. Summer faded while I was sleeping.  And a vision of the pool is all that's left in my brain, it still remains, I've got another year of homework.

My apologies to Simon and Garfunkel for stealing their song, but I know it's how we all feel.  We want just one more weekend of summer vacation before we head back to school on Monday. Wait, we DO have one more weekend. So let's make the most of it.

The Toyota Music Factory, who so far has several concepts open including Bar Louie, Thirsty Lion Gastro Pub and Freshii are ready to give the people more food to fill our bellies.
