A Memorial Day Weekend Guide That Doesn’t Involve Camping

It’s a 3 day weekend, which means you’re never going back to work ever!

Until, like, Tuesday. You may be eyeing those storm clouds and hoping it doesn’t rain out your BBQ plans – if you’re not waiting to see Chewbacca and a young Han Solo blow up the big screen with their bromance. Here are some alternative long weekend plans for ya…

P.S. It’s never too late to start planning next weekend’s plans, right? Barry’s Bootcamp and Glide, aka one of San Francisco’s most impactful community service organizations, are teaming up for a fundraiser class. Get your ass kicked for a cause.
