Smarty Scoop on Weekend Events

By Katie M

Happy Wednesday, Smarty friends! I don't know about you, but I've been so busy lately that I had no idea it's the end of January already! But it looks like a fun weekend ahead - and nothing finishes the week better than a Superbowl! No matter who you are rooting for, there are a bunch of fun Superbowl-themed events below, among other great fun family events.

Plus - TriadSmartyPants wants you to know that the Diaper Drive event takes place TODAY - not the 29th! That date was published incorrectly, and we'd hate for you to miss out on what looks like a an ingenious idea and event.

Enjoy the end of your week and the month!
