Dear Lisbon local, visitor, and/or avid and/or momentary Atlas and Momentous Eventus reader. It’s Friday again, and here in Lisbon, the sun is shining, and the weather is sweet. The city is pulsating with foreigners, and the locals are slowly awakening from their customary centuries-old annual August slumber. Portanto, life is good…
Meanwhile, as vacation draws to an end for most, we are both somewhat saddened and joyous to announce that we — after 99 consecutive weeks of Momentous Eventi, and as of today (on World Coconut Day, quite fittingly) — are taking our first (much-needed, albeit bittersweet) indefinite respite from our weekly summary of upcoming Lisbon events… But do not be sad or whatever! We do this not because we don’t love you (which, come on, you know we do!), but in order to recharge our batteries, replenish our senses, revitalize our…um, vitality… and, hopefully, triumphantly return in a near future — more momentous, more aurous, more amorous, and more bodacious than ever before!
And fear not — you can still keep checking our Full Events Calendar for what’s on around town, culturally speaking, today, tomorrow, throughout the rest of the year, and beyond, as we will continue to replenish that on a daily basis! Because not only do we love you, but we also care. Plus — respite or no — we don’t really have an off switch, in all honesty…
Still, we would like to thank you for never ceasing to make us momentous over the weeks, months, and years, and to wish you a very bom fim de semana, a glorious September, and an amazing rest of the year! We can’t wait to see you in the future, oxalá!
Your humble servant, loyal Atlas correspondent/events coordinator (and other), and Lisboa neighbor,
