Remember weekends? They used to be fun, right? There are a lot of rules right now, and a lot of places are closed, but we've found a bunch of things you can do to make this a 6ix weekend. 

From spooky activities to supporting local businesses, to even some art exhibits that continue to stay open, there are still ways to enjoy yourself and support the local economy. 

Some city activities are able to safely operate, so put yourself on a list. It's best to book in advance these days, but once you do, you're set to have a weekend to remember.
