St. Pat's Day, Andy Warhol: Freeloader Friday
Sarah Stacke, Riverside Plaza West Bank for "Overexposure"

The holiday weekend is upon us, and with it comes the great potential for a hangover. This edition of Freeloader Friday has St. Patrick's Day parades, parties, and concerts. Not into the celebration? There are also a ton of really neat art shows opening, including pieces from Andy Warhol, thousands of photos from local folks at CO Exhibitions, and a new exhibition at the Burnet Gallery.

Take a look at our list and plan your weekend.
