Get Out: Five Ideas For Your Weekend

"Get Him to the Greek," then get yourself some "Drunken Fries."

This weekend is all about things that are already good, made even better. Beer is good. Add free popcorn and a funny movie - better. Fries are good. Smother them in melted cheese and short ribs - better. Gym time is good. Gym time that doubles as babysitting - better. We love this pattern!

Our goal is to make the Get Out planner as reliable as possible, but keep in mind, some events change at the last minute. We advise calling ahead just in case.
