Just when you’re about to throw in the towel, the weekend arrives just in time to pick you up to tell you that everything’s going to be okay.

Time now for a little rest and relaxation and a little stroll around the metro. Here’s what you can catch this weekend.

The Starkness is Inviting
From August 5 to 25, you can check out the very first solo photo exhibit of Monica Barretto, titled “The Starkness is Inviting.”

See for yourself at Gallery Big, Andrea North Towers, N. Domingo corner Balete, Quezon City.
