We’ve been sending the Weekender out for 85 weeks now, and by our calculations our list has grown to about 1,500 active and engaged people of the Triad. Not too shabby, but we’re looking to beef up those numbers.

It’s so we can sell an ad on the page, by the way. Transparency.

So we’re asking casual readers of the Weekender, our weekly curated events calendar, to sign up for home delivery here. And if you’re already a subscriber, please forward this list to your friends and hassle them until they sign up, too.
