Weekend Checklist

itemprop

It's quality, not quantity in this world, right? Size doesn't matter-- it's how you use what you've got. And so on, and so forth.

These may be platitudes we spew when we're at a loss to distract from a lean reality. But in this case, it's true. Things are thinning out a bit in this wintry cold snap, but with the Doomtree Blowout pounding Saturday evening into a bloody mess, and those crusties from AntiCiv stinking up the Turf Club with a cologne of chain grease and loose tobacco, this weekend's festivities provide plenty of good reasons to zip that parka all the way up and brave the chill.
