If you like books, then you're going to love this edition of Freeloader Friday. If you don't? There's plenty of other cool stuff to do as well.

This weekend there are tons of literary events that are low on stuffiness and big on partying, including a celebration honoring John Jodzio at Honey, a party marking the release of Tattoos + Tentacles at JetSet, and the Twin Cities Book Festival.

Not into reading? Then hit up a free concert, art show, or block party.
