Live Music, Museums/Exhibits

Save some green with free shows and exhibits all weekend

Look, we know you spent all your money on tickets, an outfit and merch at ‘On The Run II.’ That’s okay. It’s Beyoncé. That’s what you’re supposed to do. But if you don’t feel like locking yourself away this weekend to make financial penance, we have plenty of free events that can keep you out of the house without coming out of your pockets.
