Things To Do: May 25-28, 2007

Among all the parties and BBQs this weekend, you should have no trouble finding a good time this Memorial Day Weekend. There's a lot of free or cheap stuff, too, so it shouldn't be too rough on the budget. On Sunday alone, you could theoretically eat two full meals without spending a dime (although you'll need a beer to go with John Johnson's awesome BBQ at the Tower Bar or with the free food at the Casbah for Jivewire/One Nation Under A Groove.) I have no set plans because there's just too much to choose from, so have a great weekend and check back in on Tuesday.
