There are SO many fun things to do this weekend! I mean just check this blog out from T-Sams about all the happenings in the Tri-State! But tonight I am SO excited because I've NEVER been to Friday After 5, I've heard so many good things, but literally every single time I've tried to go (which has been 4 times) it's rained! I was beginning to think, maybe it's me?  But I'm finally going to get to go tonight, so LAWD help me, can we keep things dry this evening?
