Just five days till the long weekend, JUGS! Thank goodness. Now let's make the week count, shall we? Here are the JUGS approved news and links for the week of May 19th:

S H O P P I N G:
Bring on the holiday sales! J.Crew and Factory are both having 20-30% off sales just in time to pick up any last minute outfits needed for your Memorial Day celebrations. I have yet to receive an email for Shopbop or Piperlime, but rest assured they'll be arriving soon.

In case you missed Brimfield last week (yes, I missed it for the second time due to work and a dead car battery), Apartment Therapy has a great round up on other interior decor sales going on online. Till July we'll just have to live vicariously through Erin's post on the amazing event.

Lastly a Warby Parker showroom opened up on Newbury Street last week (finally). Personally I'm uber excited to get some new specs, as soon as I can decide between these and these.

G I V E A W A Y S:
Our gal Kelsey is giving away the opportunity to receive a free blow-out by BeStyled. To enter visit her blog and like their facebook page here. Winners will be announced Thursday.

E N T E R T A I N M E N T:
While I generally don't approve of Kanye's behavior, whoever works for him does have some pretty badass marketing ideas. Did you hear about how he debuted his new album by projecting his songs / face on buildings all around the world, guerrilla style? Check it out here.

Devastated that all your tv shows are wrapping up? Luckily for us Dexter's final season premiers June 30th. Check the trailer here.

W E E K E N D:
Who's leaving the city on Friday? Be sure to check traffic reports as everyone and their mother will be hitting route 3 South towards the Cape and the Islands.

For those of you sticking around Boston, there's still plenty to do this weekend. CBS Boston has a list of celebrations dedicated to the men and women that serve our country and I'm sure there will be many more local parades in your area.

Looking for some big crowds? The Red Sox will be home playing The Indians and The Phillies and don't forget the two day music festival Boston Calling. VIP Passes are still available and be sure to check craigslist for any available tickets.

Just want to relax? Unfortunately the North End pool does not open till summer officially starts at the end of the school year, but there's always Southie Beach! Not looking to take a dip? Sit by the water at  Louis' new waterfront bar Sam's and then stroll over to the ICA to see the Barry McGee show, it is so fantastic.

Arrested Development comes out this weekend!!
