  • [  ] Take art classes at a museum
  • [  ] Take an evening course: writing, crafts, etc.
  • [  ] Learn a new language and practice conversation: Japanese? French? Cantonese?

Friday evenings are good (particularly in summer, when it almost feels like a second afternoon).Sometimes Sunday afternoons are good, too. I can be persuaded to use Saturdays for particularly good causes.
