Fun News About and Around Town: It’s the first Saturday of the month (how is it December already?) so it’s time for Breakfast with the Mayor. Bring all your questions and comments to breakfast at Miki’s (1819 Matthews Township Pkwy, Matthews) this Saturday, December 1 from 8 - 9 AM.
Finish breakfast and make a quick run to the Farmers’ Market* (open 8 - 10 AM, 188 N. Trade St
Matthews) to grab some delicious, locally grown food, Good Cup Coffee*, and holiday hostess gifts from Madison Woodworks*.
If you’re not too full from Miki’s or StrudelTeig at the Farmers’ Market, Hero Fitness is now offering yoga. The first class is this Saturday, December 1 from 9 - 10 AM. Mandi Murrow Brown will lead an hour of vinyasa yoga. A little downward dog in downtown Matthews is just what the doctor ordered.
Speaking of dogs, this Saturday is Buddy’s Christmas Bash at Backyard Birds* (1819 Matthews Township Pkwy, Matthews). Stop by between 9 AM and 6 PM. for the festivities and give Buddy a pat on the back and scratches behind the ears. Enjoy some tasty treats and if you’re there between 11 AM and 1 PM you can let Santa know what’s on your list. The shop is also offering 20% off any one item (excluding seed and coffee), so knock out some shopping while you’re there.
The Hometown Holiday celebration is also this weekend. If the rain doesn’t cooperate it may have to be canceled. There will be all sorts of entertainment as well as pictures with Santa, and the highlight of the evening: the tree lighting with pyrotechnics! If it does rain there is no rain date, so everybody cross your fingers. Saturday, December 1, 3 – 6 PM in front of Town Hall on Matthews Station Street.
