Nothing to do this weekend? We have some suggestions for you!

Weekend is approaching, my dear friends and just like almost every other weekend, if someone says- hey, you know, let’s go skydiving- I would say, no, are you nuts? I’d just soon sit down and have a cup of tea. And tea, ladies and gentlemen, is the theme of this weekend.
