If you aren't trying to deal with traffic this weekend or if you are saving up all your miles for a trip to Amsterdam this summer (You know who you are, Dylan), you might feel that you have nothing to do on your three-day Memorial Day weekend in the PNW.

Worry not, because here are The End's picks for your weekend activities if you're staying put in Seattle.

1. Sounders vs. Timbers (feat. Robert Delong?)
Even if you don't like soccer, this is going to be insane. It's one of the fiercest, oldest rivalries in American soccer and there's even a free concert before the match by local artist and friend of The End, Robert Delong.

2. Folklife Festival (all weekend)
Folklife is all of Seattle's weird in one place for an entire weekend. There is SO much going on and it's all free. Live music, art, dance, food and more all tucked into Seattle Center, all weekend.

3. Hot Tub Boat
Ok, you can do this anytime, but why not give it a whirl this weekend?

4. Dance Yourself Clean (Saturday night @ Chop Suey)
Every Saturday night at Chop Suey, you can get down to one of the best dance parties in Seattle inspired by music from LCD Soundsystem, CHVRCHES, Haim, and more. It's free until 10 pm and only $5 after. 

5. Nookie: A Nu Metal Tribute Night (Sunday night @ Chop Suey)
When you're done sleeping off your night of dancing, wake up, get dressed, and head back to Chop Suey for a night of....Nu Metal? It's all your little Limp Bizkit heart can want. Go get weird and leathery to the likes of Korn, Papa Roach, Slipknot, System of a Down, and so many more.
