Ah, yes, the weekend. I can think of about 30 ways to celebrate. I don’t have time to get into all of the ways here, but just know you should enjoy yourself if you aren’t working. It’s unseasonably warm, the Razorbacks play a ranked basketball team at home and there are plenty of concerts to see.
Let’s get to the latter, shall we?
