Get ready to kick it up a notch this weekend (we hope the temperatures go up a notch too). I have uncovered two unique open house events. Check out our favorite local spot for Reiki when Enchanted Forest celebrates a move to an  amazing new location. Plus this month gives us an extra Friday to celebrate the arts downtown. Or, if you having a hankering for some rock and roll, the Saints of Las Vegas are ready to rock Downtown Summerlin. For families, there is an expo full of fun for all ages happening in the northwest.
