5 events that will make you a smarter Qcity resident (Jan. 22-26)

A meet-up for young professionals. A summit for tree lovers. A college financial-planning session. We've got something for every day of your workweek.

Happy Monday, Qcity.

Narrowing our list to five was difficult this week. So before we get to our Top 5 picks, here are two others we think you should know about. Both are happening on Thursday:

• Congresswoman Alma S. Adams, Ph.D. Hosts Second Annual State of the District Address (Thursday) More info.

• Open House at McColl Center (Thursday) More info.
