Kudos to you for making it through another week; you've been rewarded with a federal holiday on Monday! As the nation celebrates a civil rights icon (and please don't forget the reason on Monday you might be off on Monday either, friends) on Martin Luther King Day, you may also be wondering what stuff around town is closed. Or where you can take the kids if they have the day off from school.
