Mmm ... Bloody Mary at DK Diner

Summer like whoa this weekend. Wanna go to the circus? Cirque Du Soleil's here. How about The Memorial? Got one of those lined up too. Gallery Hop? Check. Free donuts? Yep. Exercise event to burn off those free donuts? Uh-huh. As always, here's what I'd do this weekend if I could be everywhere all the time.
