Don't waste your day, get out there and do something!

Weekend Logo
The longer days mean more time to spend outside, now if it will just stop raining! I hope you've been saving your energy during those rainy days earlier this week because you'll surely need them for all the fun things this weekend. There's Street Festivals galore this weekend as well as fundraisers and film screenings. Get out there and have some fun!

SUNDAY, JUNE 21

Those fun boys and girls of the Gay Gaymers are doing it again! They're meeting up at Guthries Tavern - 1300 W Addison for some game playing starting at 5PM. I had a chance to meet up with this fun group last month and had a blast playing board games and card games and taboo! Check out their Facebook page for full details.

Don't forget that it's Father's Day today. If you're looking for a unique way to show Dad that you care, why not head over to the Drake Hotel for their 'Gentleman's Tea' Check here for full details

If you're heading over to the Quad Cities for Pridefest 2009 - Winds of Change - then make sure that you stick around and participate in Colors Across the River for Equality (CARE) as they attempt to carry 1000 Pride Flags across the Mississippi River over the Centennial Bridge between Davenport, IA and Rock Island, IL. A picnic starts at 2PM and the crossing will begin at 4PM.
