We’re Taking a Break..For Now

It has been our honor and a pleasure to serve you for more than 12 years – allowing us to showcase the very best of what to do locally each week in these fantastic Westside communities. It’s now time for a break. So, at this time, we want to thank all of our loyal ‘ThisWeekIn…” followers for your support, encouragement, collaboration and positive feedback over the years. Let’s continue to celebrate these great local neighborhoods which we are fortunate to live in. And, who knows, we may be back again one day in the future. In the meantime….thank you!
