I Can't: Buy A Home

I Can’t: Buy A Home is part of Mac & Cheese Productions’ I Can’t series, where adults state they’re unable to do something, they learn about it with a bunch of other adults who also “can’t,” and they prove themselves wrong and not only do the thing but enjoy it and say, “That wasn’t so bad. In fact, kinda fun. Good for me! What’s next?!”

Drinks and light dinner provided.
