Who else is ready to kick off the weekend?
I know I am. For one, it is the first spring weekend of 2017! Spring may be my favorite season of the year.
Secondly, I don’t know about you, but allergies have been kicking my butt this week! I’d like to get pollen in a ring and throw a jab or two at it! Arrrgh…
So it is time to unwind and enjoy ourselves. Thankfully, there’s plenty around town to do this weekend.
Celebrating a birthday? Don’t forget about grabbing a free birthday meal at one of these restaurants.
Wanna catch up with friends? Head out to a happy hour and cool off with refreshing drinks.
