The weekend is finally here, and if you're looking for something to do, you might consider checking out any of these five fun events that kick off tonight.

Although it was a short work week, I know we're all looking forward to the weekend with some chill vibes and plenty of relaxation.

This weekend, check out some live music at either the Prince Tribute Show or with world-renowned pianist Raul DiBlasio, or maybe cruise Ascarate, or if shopping is your therapy, then hit up the Outlet Shoppes at El Paso and support local.
