Yeah, we know. It's really tempting. We're mere hours away from the last three-day weekend of the summertime and your id is probably whispering seductively that it's possible to stretch things out a little longer by calling in sick on Friday. And why not? You've earned it, and Labor Day was created back in 1894 to give the masses a well-deserved break away from the rat race. (Of course, in those days most workplaces were far more harsh and grueling than your comparatively cushy cubicle, but we'll ignore that for the sake of argument.)
If your wilder side wins out and you plan on being absent from work on Friday, the good news is that there are a couple Labor Day-related parties and nightlife events occurring on Thursday evening, not to mention during both the daytime and evening hours throughout the entire weekend in the Metro Phoenix area.
