Your Perks: 1) Sunglasses by designers like Givenchy and Gucci. Except, you know, not at designer prices. 2) Maybe the most ingenuously designed umbrella ever. It rains in the spring, so be ready. 3) Autographed memorabilia... from guys who are pretty good at sports... with names like Larry Bird and LeBron James...
Wine, Pork Meatballs and Classical Daft Punk
Sticks and stones may break your bones, but the weekend will never hurt you.
