Despite the cold, this weekend is filled with tons of free stuff to do. For example, after taking a year off the Art Shanty Project is returning to Medicine Lake with shanties offering fashion, live music, sports, family activities, and more each Saturday and Sunday through early February.

Looking to stay warm and indoors this weekend? Check out the Bon Iver-inspired gallery show at XYandZ, or pick up a new hobby and attend a free homebrewing class.

Is your upcoming weekend extra-long due to Martin Luther King Jr. Day? We've got plenty of fun things to do on Monday as well.
