Welcome to the weekend!
Even the most dedicated employees are glad when Friday rolls around. It means two days off to relax, sleep in, spend more time with the family, rake the leaves...whatever your heart desires!
There are a lot of holiday events going on this weekend, including some old favorites: the Oregon Zoo
lights, the Festival of Lights at the Grotto
, and the Jubitz Winter Wonderland
at PIR. The Oregon Ballet Theatre
is also putting on two holiday shows, The Nutcracker and A Holiday Revue.
Looking for something with a little more of a "party" atmosphere? Then try the Annual Winter Beer Festival at Amnesia Brewing
in North Portland. (I stole that one from Beer Goddess Lisa Morrison. Check out her web page
for more events like that!)
Personally, I will spend my Saturday tracking down the perfect Christmas tree. I am a person motivated by convenience, so I will probably go to whatever lot or farm my brother with a truck wants to take me. But I'm open to suggestions! Do you have a favorite place that you take your family every year?
However you decide to spend your weekend, enjoy it! But don't forget, the dedicated newsies here at FM News 101 are working 24/7, even on the weekends, to bring you all the important stuff. :-)
