Y’all, we’re only two weeks into the year, and we’re already seeing temps in the high 60s, low 70s. So much for winter, huh? I’m not complaining though! It’s perfect weather to get out and about this weekend. Are you very superstitious? Friday the 13th is looming, but luckily for you, we’ve compiled a list of what the Coastal Bend’s got in store this weekend:
Friday, 5:30-7:30 p.m.
There’s nothing spooky about this happy hour. Get your engines revved up with free beer with the Corpus Christi Harley Girls and get inked onsite with Mac from Fine Line Tattz. The only unlucky thing about this event is if you miss out. Hockey mask not included.

Life just got you feeling a little downward dog? But still, sticking to your resolutions? Do you feel a little more limber with some liquid help?

It’s not a phase, mom. Break out the eyeliner, lace up your converse (or slip on your vans) because sugar, we’re going down to House of Rock to wax nostalgic about when we’d be sleeping all day and stayin’ up all night.
