Now that the weather has warmed up a bit, there's even more things to do as parks, lakes, and bike trails become more enjoyable. However, weekends are best spent with at least one official event to attend. For this installation of Freeloader Friday we've got CD-release shows, gallery opening (and closing) parties,  theater performances, cooking demonstrations, and tons of other things to keep you entertained for free.

Come take a look at our list after the jump.
