Libras’ creative and outgoing spirit thrives in fresh surroundings and communal settings, ultimately allowing them to brunch without limits. The Hive’s central location allows them to be more spontaneous with their post-brunch activity, whether it be in Shreveport or Bossier City, but glow bowling at Holiday Lanes is highly recommended.

Here’s a little lagniappe, Flying Heart is located in the East Bank District, which is a relaxed walk away from Horseshoe Casino and Hotel and Louisiana Boardwalk Outlets.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
