You can always tell the weekend is getting closer, because everyone around the office/school/house gets into “we can do it next week” mode.

Studying? Cram on Monday.

Winterizing the garage? Get right on it on Tuesday night.

TPS reports? We can coast until Wednesday.

Let us help you evade those responsibilities! Check out this week’s list of events in and around Barrie.
