Slow weekend, but if you like proms & bikes, then it’s time to dust off your gas mask for this year’s Bike Prom.

It’s the weekend, everyone! Whoooo! And it doesn’t even seem to be abysmally hot, so enjoy not sticking to everything for a few days.

Congratulations, you’ve made it to Friday! If you don’t have any plans for your last summer weekend in FoBo before all the GW students arrive, take a look at some of the cooler events we’ve found for the weekend. There’s drinks, music, art, flippin the bird to the Soviets, and sushi served on a naked woman’s body. That’s just how we roll in FoBo.
Read all the deets after the jump!
