If you believe in the Mayan predictions, the end of the world is very near. You may think the idea is nothing but absurd, but if you don’t want to be sitting on your sofa when the big day comes, you gotta make sure you go out and appreciate the last hours of life. This week can be the perfect excuse to party or to get some last sips of culture and if by some strange miracles the world doesn’t end on Friday, there is still much going on during the weekend. Decide yourself how the world is going to end with the events after the jump!
