Have you had a long week at work this week and need a bit of a pick-me-up? Well for starters, IT IS FINALLY THE WEEKEND!!! After a long week at work, it is time to wind down and blow off some steam during the weekend before we have to go back to work on Monday.

We have done the hard work for you on a Friday and have found some things going on here in the Lake Charles and Southwest Louisiana area this weekend, July 21-23.
