Also, this is the last weekend of the Jordan’s Monster Repeat, so if you think the Red Sox will win the World Series this year, make sure to stop by Jordan’s.

This is also the last weekend of the Shaw’s Monolopy game with it ending on Tuesday, May 20, 2014. Last time my store ran out of tickets before the last day but the time before they were doubling and tripling tickets in the last week– so make sure to redeem those free ticket coupons soon if you’ve got them and check for rare game pieces!

Hope you have a great weekend! What are you up to this weekend?
