As rough as the work week can be, stress-filled weekends can be worse. Even if you're somehow not as exhausted from all the wrestling mayhem as we are, it's likely you're beat from April Fool's Day nonsense, your weekend workload, or that nagging voice in the back of your head telling you that you have yet to file your taxes.
Luckily, April 15 is still a few weeks away, and we have some ways you can keep cash in your wallet while winding down from any tension you've had in the past few days. Read on for info on a parkside moving screeening, a chill surf rock party, and more events to cool you down in the approaching summer heat.
