- Okay, cycling has become a new craze. Complete with people walking around in yoga pants and neon shirts, it’s a fun time, believe it or not. But somehow TURN Studio and Pontoon Brewing have figured out how to make it even more fun. On Saturday, pedal your way through TURN Studio’s 10 AM or 11 AM class with bumpin’ beats by DJ Jash Jay, and receive a free brew from Pontoon Brewing at the end! Now that’s that you call motivation! Reservations are required and space is limited, so reserve your spot right away!
- LEGOS and Joe at Ponce City Market
- Date: Saturday, May 19, 2018; 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM
- Location: Ponce City Market
- I’m just going to say it right now…I’m a K’NEX-kinda guy. Yup, I said it. This sounds fun though. Grab the fam and head to The Shed at Ponce City Market on Saturday morning for a full day of engineering and design fun. Dancing Goats will provide some great tasting coffee to fuel you through building some great creations from a giant tub of LEGOs. This is a family-friendly event so bring the kids too! You can even try one of MODA’s design challenges if you’re feeling cool. Find out more about this fun event here!
- BEY DAY – All Beyoncé Dance Party!
- Date: Saturday, May 19, 2018; 10:00 PM
- Location: The Basement
- I have been waiting this entire article to write about this event. SATURDAY IS BEY DAY (I’m still slightly unsure what constitutes this as Bey Day, but whatever)!!! Celebrate the Survivor, the Me, Myself and I woman of the century Queen Bey at The Basement this Saturday with a dance party lasting all night. There will be nothing but Beyoncé, so by 11:30 the club will be jumpin’, jumpin’. Dusty Bottoms will be there too, omg! “All my women [and men] who independent,” go RSVP right here. I’ll definitely see you there.
Alright, there’s your weekend all laid out for you.
And I’m settling this right now–it’s Laurel. Don’t “@” me.
