Top 5 Things to Do This Weekend

Since family functions will likely reign supreme for the remainder of 2011, there are plenty of reasons to get out and enjoy your last obligation-free weekend.

Here are your best bets for a good time:

TBAG Eggnog Ride @ Tempe Beach Park
Hop on the ole two-wheeler for Tempe Bicycle Action Group's Third Friday ride. This jaunt is routed with neighborhood diversions for optimal viewing of Hanukkah and Christmas lights. Attendees are encouraged to add festive lights to their bikes, and tote hot cocoa and cookies -- that'll burn off during the run.  The meetup will begin at 7:30 p.m. at Tempe Beach Park and wrap up a few hours later with drinks. Participation is free. See details here.
