The weekend is almost here. With August being the last full month of summer we have to take advantage of all the outdoor festivities while they last.

If this work week was one for the books and you need a little chill time with your friends. Maybe take the family out to check out the fun happening around the Capital Region.

Here's my top 3 this weekend.

1) Washington Park Play House is putting on th second half of their plays series with " How to succeed in business without really trying"

2) Marlon Waynes will be at the Funny Bone this weekend. Enjoy some drinks and most importantly laughs.

3) Paint Sip and Eat FREE MAC N CHEESE this weekend in Troy. You will be painting 2 wine glasses that I'm sure will come in handy. Check out more right here
