St Andrews Priory

Your daughter's latest appointment television on Monday nights: The Carrie Diaries.

Who could blame her? It follows a teenage girl leading a glamorous double life in the big city. As a responsible parent, you could point out that the show is a work of fiction fueled solely by Hollywood magic.

Work in Progress

R/D reopens after 5-week renovation

Paint the Town

Local artist on display at Town restaurant

Lei Chic

Fast forward a few hours. It's Friday night and you're on a date. The ambiance: romantic. The food: amazing. The guy: ehh... not so hot.

Okay, so that may or may not be true. But this is your last-ditch effort to find a guy before Valentine's Day and, well, the night could go either way.
