Win With Meek Mill At South Side Ballroom, Sing Along With The Stars Of “Nashville” and 50 Other Things To Do This Weekend.

We’ve all had our accounts of road rage every once in a while, and we all deal with it differently.

And apparently, so do massive-sized squirrels. If you think your road rage is crazy, check out these two large marmots squaring up in the middle of the road in the town of Haixi Mongol in China earlier this month. We don’t know what went down before these two tussled, but they sure caused an interesting scene — and traffic — along the side of the highway.

But you can cope with your road rage a little differently by heading out to one or two of the many events we have in store for you. Have a safe drive home, folks, and enjoy the weekend. — Pauline Esguerra
