Get Out: A Filling Weekend of Events
Many benefit dinners on tap, and more.
We know that, once the weekend hits, sometimes it can be hard to decide what to do. Recover from a taxing week? Go all out and be completely knackered come Monday? Somewhere in-between? It is our hope (nay, our wish) that this weekend planner helps you find that balance between "wow" and "zzz."
And, hey, if you're hungry, this weekend is surely going to fill you up.
