It was a long week already at 1 o'clock in the afternoon on Monday. But now Friday is finally here — and the weekend stretches gloriously before you.

So many things to do, so many places to explore. But here's the thing: Sometime during the next 48 hours. you're going to get bored. You'll be waiting on a friend or stuck at an event you didn't want to attend or any one of a number of things. And you'll long for something that's simultaneously fun and thought-provoking and interesting to do.

When that moment hits, try connecting with CMSWire.
