Glad You Asked: Weekend To-Dos



Dear GYA, Can we unanimously agree to stop replacing the word "now" with "meow?" I'll admit, the first time I read it I was like, "Hey, look at that. That's kind of funny." Now, whenever I read it I think you're just trying to subtley inform others that you tuck your T-shirt into your jeans.  Is there anything happening this weekend that doesn't involve people saying, "meow?" - Doris Whisply, Rose Park---

Doris, You shouldn't jump to conclusions about people who use "meow." Not everyone tucks their T-shirts into their jeans -- some have Kool-Aid mustaches and some draw mascara whiskers on their face. Everyone's different, Doris. Here's what's up for this weekend. Let's start with Friday's events
