Things To Do This Week.

Get The Jump On Your 1/20 - 1/26 Plans.

By Cory on Sunday, January 20, 2013 at 4:19 PM

Some holidays are easy to plan for. We see Thanksgiving and Christmas coming months in advance and plan our time off meticulously. Others just kind of sneak up on us. As such, these unexpected, MLK-type three-day weekends somehow just feel so much more magical. There's just something about a four-day work week that lends itself to going out every night without feeling too guilty.

So what are you going to do with your extra party nights this week? We've got a few ideasâ€Â¦
