Guns, beer, and partying are on the menu for this weekend. Gun safety, at any rate, some comedy and beer, and a big 70’s party, to be more specific. Some star-gazing for a quieter time, a library party that is surprisingly not going to be quiet, and some trail-running introductions to begin your new summer workout routine. Oh, you should probably adopt a puppy, too. Or a wild horse.
