Radar: To Do In JAX // 5.12-5.15

At Fray, we’re committed to going outside of our comfort zone and our house! This week’s digital radar is your guide for events that are both active and actively awesome. Choose between saving money by learning how to make your own sushi, or drunkenly learning about Jacksonville’s history. Or perhaps you need to impress no one with your karaoke skills? Whatever your tastes are, feel certain that Jacksonville is your place for active living. Note: Most descriptions courtesy of event hosts and edited for clarity.
