Weekend Roundup

Happy Friday, I hope you're enjoying a great week! This week was a little unusual in that I just finished a three-day juice cleanse, and I'll be sharing more thoughts on that later today. It was a truly fascinating (and amazingly not painful!) process. Meanwhile, if you're looking for something fun to do this weekend, here are 24 events, lovingly curated for your consideration.
