Kickball? The perfect cross section of hipsters, jocks and beer lovers
Charming classmates,
Maybe it's just me, but a summer time Kickball league has something for everyone! Cross over to Chapel Hill to enjoy some exercise and good times ... or stay in Durham for this week's full spread of learning, making, music and films. I'm particularly excited about YOGA in the Gardens as part of the American Dance Festival.
There's something for everyone. Get out of the library!
