Dope Events To Attend Over The Weekend

Our favorite part of the week is the weekend. What we love the most about the weekends are events. Now that we are getting into the last quarter of the year, where we officially open sherehe season, you can rest assured that is the home to deets on the ultimate weekend plans.

This weekend, House Music lovers seem to be God’s favorite children because they are spoilt for choice. In case you are not into House Music, worry not as our picks for the weekend also have other options such as brunch (foodies where you at?) and a literary festival.
