    Four for the Weekend | May 13-15, 2022

    Welcome to our latest edition of Fox Valley Magazine’s


    where we advocate for cubits as the primary unit of measurement. If it was good enough for Noah…

    So let’s get to it, starting with…..

    Mrs. Brown, You’ve Got A…

    …lovely daughter.

    (Is it us, or would saying that these days get you investigated?)

    We’ve only ever associated Herman’s Hermits with that song, which is an injustice. They sold something like 80 million records with hits like “I’m On To Something Good” and “There’s A Kind Of Hush.”

    Well, their coming back to the Arcada on Sunday, so here’s your chance to relive those glory days of the British Invasion.

    (We were too young for that stuff at the time. Ha!)

    Get Off Your Keister And PADDLE!

    It is time.

    For the first time in what seems to be decades we’re gonna have an honest-to-goodness summer weekend the next few days.

    And what says “summer” better than…paddleboats?

    Time to get outdoors and move around a little. Soak up some sun. Maybe even sweat a bit!

    (Of course, we don’t sweat, we perspire.)

    Those who read this enewsletter regularly know that we get a perverse pleasure out of torturing our male readers with constant recommendations for French/Farmers Markets (I guess we could recommend a French Farmer’s Market as well.)

    But in our defense, when the weather’s nice, they are really very pleasant, even if you’re not in buying mode.

    And they are great for getting points from your girlfriend or wife (or both).

    And Geneva’s French Market is the quaintest of them all. So quit whining and get out there.

    And Finally…

    We saved the best for last.

    You simply must visit the Aurora Greek Fest. It comes twice per year, and is just wonderfully festive.

    And the food….to die for.

    (No, we’re not gonna do that “oop-paa” think here. It’s beneath us.)

    Looks like a great weekend ahead, with summer-like highs in the eighties Friday and Saturday, cooling off to 70 on Sunday. Chance of Saturday morning thunderstorms, but otherwise pretty dry. We’ll take it. As ever, plan accordingly.

    If, for whatever reason, none of our fabulous four events doesn’t pop your cork, we’ll be very insulted. However, all hope is not lost. Simply go to www.foxvalleymagazine.com and check out our A+E and Events sections for other ideas.

    Finally, please do us a favor. We would be eternally grateful if you could share this with some of your unsuspecting family, friends and neighbors. We’d also appreciate some love on our Facebook page (see below). Ok, technically it’s a “LIKE,” but don’t be pedantic. Also, that’s actually two favors. We’ll owe you.

    Thanks for reading. Until next time…OH!  One more thing.  If you’re reading this via the website and would like to have this emailed to you bright and early every Friday morning, please SUBSCRIBE!
