Unpredictable winter weather may stop you from making big plans, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the weekend. Of course, you can binge watch a show on your favorite streaming service or you can watch the NFL playoffs (Giants vs. Eagles on Saturday night!)—but if you want to get out of the house, there are plenty of places to go.

Below is a quintet of events happening over the next two days in Bergen County. Each one is perfect to bond with old pals or make new friends and to renew a hobby or start a new one.
