A Parting Shot

Let’s not allow the tricks and treachery of these political times trump our zest for life. As we celebrate the thaw of a corrosive ‘Winter in America’ music, people and tastes abound. If you’re up to being on the move, here’s additional celebratory events worth checking out.  We’ve got rhythms from the beach town of Rehoboth to the sands of Montego Bay. And savor the flavors from Chicago to Charleston and then Canada.
