plus history made and presented.

The good news is that the weather will be warming up next week, putting this icy cold in the rearview. Who’s ready for sunny 60º days?!?

If you have pre-teens, you’ve probably heard about Mr. Beast, the NC YouTuber that grosses about $8 million/month on their videos and merchandise. They’ve expanded their empire to include burgers – and without all the overhead of owning a kitchen. Enter: ghost kitchens – utilizing extra capacity in already established restaurants to serve up your personalized menu. We found Mr. Beast Burgers on the Uber Eats app and tracked it to the Bravo! restaurant at Friendly Shopping Center.

The Greensboro History Museum has a powerful new exhibit called Pieces of Now that showcases the historic events that took place in Greensboro during 2020. Curators have compiled and displayed artifacts from the Black Lives Matter protests, the economic crisis, and the pandemic as it affected the lives of Greensboro residents. You can tour the exhibit in person for free Tuesday-Saturday 10am to 5pm, or take a virtual tour.

// Things to Do //

Greensboro Beautiful is sponsoring a Winter Wipeout program to help wipeout litter around Greensboro. You can sign up to clean up specific litter “hot spots”, then upload before and after shots to Greensboro Beautiful’s Facebook page to show the great work you did! Without leaves on trees and bushes, trash is easier to see, which means your efforts will make a huge difference!

(PS – it’s a great excuse to get kids outside and teach them
about taking care of our community, too!)
