1. The easiest SUX 6 in Weekender history?

Guess what the six top things to do in Sioux City this week are? Well, there ain't any, so there! OK, that's not right. In this COVID-19 era, we just have to be more creative in our activities.

Food Charlie Boy

Monte Colfack of Kingsley, Iowa, rarely turns down a food challenge; or food, for that matter. Colfack is shown dining on Charlie Boys at Miles Inn in Sioux City.

4. Learn a new hobby, skill or ... gasp ... do something useful!

Since we're self-quarantining, we might as well be productive. Even want to learn a new language, try out a new exercise and follow a new interest? There's an app -- or a website or YouTube video for that!

5. Help your fellow human!

6. More important, stay smart, stay inside and stay healthy!

Suppose that goes without saying. This crisis can't last forever. We'll party after all of this is done.
