To help you get the most out of your weekend, we've enlisted the live-event expertise of the editors of Rundown, a daily e-mail newsletter that highlights the best goings-on in nine cities across the United States. From Dallas beer tastings and Miami food festivals to Seattle book readings and San Francisco obstacle races, Rundown curates its Friday-Saturday-Sunday listings every seven days in its 'This Weekend' section. We've picked six of our favorite upcoming events from this week's USA edition of Rundown below.
