Glad You Asked: Your Weekend To-Do's



Dear GYA, I can't believe these Android users now get to use the Instagram app! This is complete and utter malarkey. It's supposed to be for sophisticated geniuses with iPhones -- you know, real photographers. I mean, gosh, what's the point? We can't have these amateurs running around believing they can take quality photos with an Android smartphone! Urrgh, it makes me so mad. -Ansel Adams---

Ansel, I feel your pain. Everyone knows that iPhone users are natural-born photographers. I know you're upset, but I'm sure sooner or later you guys will find something new and expensive to be snobby about. So in the meantime, here are a few things happening this weekend that you could document with Instagram:
