Summer is a little more than halfway over, and what do you have to show for it? Hopefully a lot since you’ve been religiously checking the Weekend Roundup, but even if you haven’t, all is not lost. Take this weekend by the horns and laugh, read, learn a skill or two, eat, and of course, drink your weight in craft beer. Most of all, though, don’t let this weekend pass you by because it’s chock-full of events.
