The Dirty Grind has a great community spirit, and is a place I’ve visited numerous times, both to write about in this blog and simply to enjoy. Steeped in music, and with a strong support for art, it is a great place to explore – so why not find a little time over the next few days to hop over to wish them a happy anniversary?
