We all live for the weekends. After a long work week winding down and relaxing may be in some favor but going out for a drink and catching  up with friends and family sounds like an even better plan.

One of my favorite things to do on the weekends is do brunch somewhere locally in catch up with my friends. We also enjoy bowling and since the weather is nice a bon fire and s'mores is always a plus.
