Events To Cure Post-Holiday Blues
By now, the Christmas lights are taken down, and I’ve got the post-holiday blues. What to do after weeks of holiday parties? Do I exist outside of a cocktail dress? Why is water somehow not as enjoyable as champagne? Fear not. As we adjust to the new decade, lots of events in and around Lafayette will make the transition a little smoother.
Even if there are no more Christmas lights and mimosa Tuesdays.
