Great music, good food and plenty of art to stroll and admire along the path of our beautiful cities. You may even see a favorite actor and his band. Don’t forget Mother’s Day is around the corner and there’s plenty to do to start celebrating her early, too. Enjoy the moments this week has ready for you to embrace.
