Guzzle Down Some Bleached.
Well, we've finally reached the end of yet another workweek and are free to throw our cares to the wind. Unless, you work on the weekends, in which case I am very, very sorry.
But, hey, even then, things aren't so bad. Think of it this way: We're a week closer to the season four premiere of Arrested Development, right? May 26 can't get here quickly enough, can it?
In the meantime, why not focus your attention on any one of the great events taking place in the region through out this weekend? Like what, you ask? Well, you can get magical with Penn and Teller, bless the grapes out in Grapevine or grab that sequined skirt you have lying around from that one Halloween costume that you refuse to throw away and boogie down at the Texas Theater.
Either way, one thing is for sure: You're going to have a killer time this weekend.
