Your precious reprieve from the daily grind has arrived once again, and we know exactly what you can check out this weekend to make sure that you don’t just spend your time lounging at home.[firstpara]

Get some new kicks
Adidas and Nike, two of our favorite shoe brands will be having a huge clearance sale this weekend over at the Megatrade Hall 1 in SM Megamall.

With discounts of up to 70% off, it’s the best time to invest on new gear, new shoes, and accessories, all from these two premium brands. So the next time you and your pals meet for a little basketball, you’ll at least be able to impress them with your new kicks.

For 750 pesos, you get to drink all the international beer that you can, plus a quarter pound sausage burger. Only 50 seats will be accommodated on each night, so come early, and drink the night away.
