This week in Freeloader Friday we have a variety of events that won't break the bank, including the PlayLabs theater series, a yearly event featuring raw theater in the early stages of becoming great. There's also Hallo-Whomp, the 331's pre-Halloween dance jam that honors the freshness of the '90s. If you've got a pit bull, or just want to learn more about the breed, there's a festival for that too. Otherwise, check out our list of expos, dance nights, barhopping events, gallery openings and closings, and more.
