If you’re staying in town this Memorial Day weekend, you’ll find a lot more happening than just picnics and barbeques. Take in some jazz, travel back in time with Dr. Who, or even sip a beer with Mei Lun and Mei Huan. The possibilities are endless.
By now know that in the spring, these blog posts are chock full of festivals. And this one is no exception. But if you’re suffering from festival fatigue, this pre-holiday weekend has a lot of quirky activities, from dogs on a catwalk, to a quest for the greatest laugh, to ballerinas causing a ruckus.

Sure, we love the classic version of these events, but the oddities pique our curiosity like no other.

But pure mortals should probably stick to participating in just a few of this weekend’s events.
