The Weekend Guide

The weekend guide will be one of the new features I am adding to the site. The reason I wanted to add this particular feature is because I always get asked what is there to do around town. For the very first post I got my information from daily candy they provide this information for several cities in the United States. As, I grow my readership I will add other cities such as Houston, LA, New Orleans or even Atlanta.

Other good things to do this weekend would go to the park and play with your dogs or just look at the scenery. Check out your local shopping centers for weekend sales. LFT in Dallas area is having a 75% sale off EVERYTHING. Go watch Dark Knight or Step brother at the theaters. If you are in the Texas area remember to stay hydrated and don't spend a plethora of time in the heat.
