Can't afford to attend the Zombie Pub Crawl? Don't want to deal with the huge crowds of undead? No problem. There's still tons of free stuff to do that doesn't involve total anarchy. This week in Freeloader Friday we have the Saint Paul Art Crawl, which features lots of free music, studio events, and wine and beer tastings; glam MNFashion Week parties; and excellent dance nights at Clubhouse Jager, Kitty Cat Klub, and more.
