Myself, since I have been about as far under the weather as one can get, I am not sure I will be participating in the local events this weekend. That does not mean that the metro and surrounding areas are not packed with fun things to do. It does not seem to matter what type of entertainment you crave, this weekend will provide it. I only wish I was feeling better because this is the best weekend weather we have had all year! (I love the fall weather)
