First, the Deals, Discounts and Freebies:

The Menu:

Don’t know what to make this weekend? Don’t worry. We’ve got it all figured out for you.


  • Fruit salsa with cinnamon chips — It’s light and refreshing, so it won’t weigh down your guests while they’re snacking poolside.
  • No-bake seven-layer Mexican dip — Just keep it a safe distance from the fruit salsa so people don’t unwittingly mix the two. (Although, who knows, the sweet and savory blend could be delicious.)

The main course:


The playlist:

  • “Alejandro” — Lady Gaga
  • “California Gurls” — Katy Perry featuring Snoop Dogg

  • “Hey, Soul Sister” — Train
  • “Airplanes” — B.o.B. featuring Haley Williams
