We know y’all are sneezing from all this yellow stuff floating around, but we promise it’s worth it. Spring is here, and this weekend is chock full of ways to celebrate the season. From art openings to music (lots of it) to a kinda creepy play, we’re ready to get our culture on. Oh, yeah, and there are some do-good-for-the-earth type activities this weekend too, so if you want to give back to those flowering beauties and green, green trees, head out to an Earth Day celebration or island cleanup.
