8. If you’ve never been inside the historic Landmark on the Sound Event Center, you owe it to yourself to see this magnificent architectural treasure (HINT: be sure to look for the amazing Masonic symbols throughout, especially the time capsule by the front fountain!).

7. Where else are you going to get wine, food, and live music all afternoon for just $25? It’s still the best deal in town!
