Mar 21 2018, 5:58 pm

It might only be the third day of spring, and there might be some snow in the forecast, but that’s no reason to hunker down and spend a boring Thursday evening at home!

There’s still plenty going on around the city to check out, including a newly opened Noodlebox in Beltline.

There’s no better reason to get out the door than for some fresh noodles… unless you order delivery, that is!
