Three things to do in & around La Crosse this weekend!

The short week is over & summer is here! I don’t know about you, but I’m going to busy AF the next few months, so when I have some time off, I’ll be in my basement, taking a nap!

There’s plenty of stuff going on this weekend if you’re looking for something to do, including a Rock Stop on Friday at Hansen’s IGA in West Salem from 4-5:35pm with Twisted Tea, a Rock Stop on Saturday at Shep’s Riverside Bar & Grill on Saturday from 1:30-3:05pm, and again on Sunday at Shep’s from 1:30-3:05pm.
