Weekend Roundup (12/17-12/19)

😆 Looking for some laughs? Lots of options this weekend: Corgi Comedy Club arguably has the best name value; Chilltown Comedy at 902 is the best deal in town at $15 with two draft beers included.

🦉 Hobby ornithologists, this one's for you. The Feminist Bird Club of JC is hosting its Annual Bird Count Sunday morning. More of a casual fan? They'll also have an Accessible Bird Count in the afternoon for newcomers, no equipment required!

🎉 More of a party person? For something off the beaten path, check out Come As You Are, an underground arts showcase on the West Side. For something more mainstream, try Cuffin Jersey, an R&B party at Porta.
