According to the MTA’s Weekender you’ll spend it anywhere but on the L train between Lorimer Street in Brooklyn and 8th Avenue in Manhattan.

The shutdown starts tonight, Friday, May 24, and continues through Memorial Day. Service is scheduled to resume Tuesday, May 28, at 5 a.m.

Meanwhile, listen to native Oklahoman Woody Guthrie, remember our countrymen in Moore, Oklahoma, and have a great Memorial Day Weekend!
