Mamatoga Daily: Monday, Jan. 23rd

I hope everyone had a great weekend and was able to stay warm! I spent my weekend visiting with an old friend and her beautiful new baby, sledding, enjoying an amazing brunch and doing a little shopping, all in all a fantastic weekend. For tomorrow the Saratoga Springs Library has a bunch of great activities lined up, and for all of the events going on check out the Mamatoga Calendar! If you have an event you'd like to see listed there shoot me an email at mamatogajenny@gmail.com and I'll get it up there for you. Don't forget about the Mamatoga Top Fives over at Saratoga.com, you can find those here, and I hope everyone has a great night! Stay tuned this week for my full review of brunch at Sperry's, more from our Gear Guru and much much more...
