Single-item edition: pulled from the previous comprehensive edition, so you won't miss-out...
NUMEROUS concerts, club gigs, film events, and even festivals are indeed happening this weekend.
Some of those things even run multiple days, through Saturday & Sunday, and began as early as Wednesday.
We've got 'em. But we do NOT re-list them here, so click our previous edition which is chockful of 'em! Take a spin through things there and check out the scope and specificities -- or you WILL miss things. (And none of us wants that to happen, now do we?)
Now let's get to why you're reading this (drum roll, maestro)...
FREE TODAY: a kaleidoscopic potpourri, a cornucopia of culture.
Museums, both the indoor and outdoor varieties.
The places all the visitors from overseas go to see when they're here.
See how great-great grandma and grandpa found entertainment when they weren't working 72-hour, six-day work weeks.
Behold spaceships that have been there, done that.
Experience the 19th century frontier (and earlier).
See how America's original inhabitants lived before the Europeans got here and brought messy industrialization to our continent.
See the now-obsolete machines of early industrialization -- machines that now seem utterly charming compared with our Cyberian obsessions.
See what was once fashion, that might just seem barbarously tortuous to think of wearing now.
See places that teach reverence for Mother Earth.
It's astonishing what's out there... FREE, today... where ABUNDANT possibilities await you!
So, GO already! Here's the realm of where...

be along as we get them dressed,
shoes tied, cowlicks combed down,
bowties cranked straight,
and strings tuned.
Find a comfortable spot by the
wood stove, play a round or two
of checkers, and we'll be along...
