Get Humble With Kendrick Lamar, Cool Down With Water Guns, Get Ice Cream Wasted And Other Things To Do In And Around Dallas This Week.

This weekend is going by a bit too fast for our tastes — not as fast as Moninda Marube, though. He outran two black bears that were charging at him in the woods on the outskirts his Maine home’s property last Wednesday.

First, the Kenyan runner saw the bears in the distance. Then he considered his options. He knew he couldn’t jump into the nearby lake because he can’t swim. So he did the thing he does best — he ran, and all the way to safety.

Imagine you’re Marube and boredom is those two charging black bears. The following list of ongoings is your safe space
