Friday, January 8
Take advantage of the recent heavy snowfall during a naturalist-guided snowshoe hike at The Ridges on Friday afternoon. Snowshoes are available for rent and if there happens to be insufficient snow, pull on your good ol’ winter boots for a naturalist-led hike instead. 2 pm.
Blast away the winter blues with an evening of karaoke with DJ Hope Reyes at Mojo Rosa’s in downtown Egg Harbor. 9 pm. Have plans but still want to sing to your heart’s content? Join Cheryl Simon at Carrington Pub on Saturday night beginning at 9 pm.
