One Stop Shop

I was going to take some time today to blog about the new Clark campus opening in Southborough, but that will need to wait...grandma is in town which means my wife and I can get out of the house on a week night without budgeting for a sitter.

In our quest to find fun local activities we discovered the One Stop Shop happening Thursday, November 19th from 6:30 - 9:00 pm at the Westboro Area JCC. This event looks like it will be a lot of fun and my wife and I will both be there. Last year I emceed the Taste of the Boroughs event and really enjoyed highlighting the local restaurants and businesses that were involved. The WAJCC is always committed to community involvement and knows how to throw a great event so I am excited to get out and socialize. Here is what I know about The One Stop Shop:

Thursday, November 19th from 6:30 am - 9:00 pm

This group of vendors has some really great stuff.  I added links for the ones I knew.  I also want to highlight two that I have had personal experience with in the past.

If you haven't tried Simply Dahlicious, you should go to this event for them alone. They were a participant at the 2009 Taste of the Boroughs and were loved by all attendees. I believe during the event last year I had at least 4 cupcakes from Simply Dahlicious. They were just so...delicious! From the experiences of my friends Simply Dahlicious works closely with event planners to understand each event. They design a menu custom-tailored to the event and its guests. They really put in the effort to make an event extra special.

I also noticed on this list is Just So Designs. Just So Designs is photography by Susan Oger. She is an amazing photographer and extremely creative person. I have a set of prints from a photo shoot Sue did with my kids a couple of months ago. She has a great eye for contrast and brings out so much life in her photos.

I am excited for tomorrow's event, not just because my wife and I can get out for the evening, but the WAJCC always creates a fun atmosphere and the vendors have such great items. I hope to see others there.
