Each day will feature a top pick in the areas of 1. fitness (active), 2. comedy, 3. culture, 4. film, 5. food + drink, 6. free, 7. music and 8. staying in (because let’s face it, sometimes you just want to not leave your couch). It’s a short week this time, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to do INCLUDING black metal yoga, a Wild Honey Pie dinner party w/ Plastic Plates, a screening of Paris, Texas and MORE:
