After working for the weekend, it's here, a few days off that we'll celebrate with this special edition of Kotaku Off Topic, where anything goes. Well, almost anything.

I'm kicking off the weekend with a little pho tonight, perhaps a few big Kirin Ichibans and some relaxation. It'll be a frosty 50 degrees Farenheit here in Los Angeles, so some hot broth with some rare beef—hold the tendon!—will do the trick. What do you plan to do with your weekend?

Get caught up on some of this week's more interesting non-video game related things below, then comment away about whatever's on your noodle tonight.
