    Date Night

     

    If Ghost is on your list of favorite movies, then this couples' class might be just the thing for you! Join The Clay Studio on Fridays through March 27 for their Date Night event, a fun night of pottery, beer, snacks and good vibes. While this event is slightly over $25, we at PFG believe it's well worth the money.
