It's nice to know we're going into a three day weekend. We all love having an extra day off. This Monday is Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. And if you want to honor Dr. King, there's a great memorial observance that takes place every year at the Empire State Plaza. Check out the information. The event is always inspiring so think about heading down to the Plaza on Monday.
