Plenty of siblings will be flocking into town this weekend to see their family members and get a glimpse of what Athens is like. Every year, Sibs Weekend includes an array of events to choose from. 

We hope this edition of The Post piques the interest of our regular readers and all the siblings coming into town. A portion of the tab includes stories about the 70 students who were arrested in Baker one year ago, a story about the Athens City School District Board of Education and an in-depth look into the job market. But stories about humor, events and more can also be found in this edition. 

Logan Pasqual, who typically writes our meme of the month blog, took on a story about millennial humor and memes. He did the interviews and the reporting, and also crafted an illustration that encapsulates meme culture. 

If you or your sibling is a ’90s kid, you’re probably familiar with the days of wearing skater shoes and Thrasher T-shirts. Because the trend seems to be increasingly popular, Alexis Eichelberger took a deeper dive into the culture and its popularity. 

Anthony Poisal, one of our hockey reporters, wrote story about two teammates who played together on a youth team in Cleveland. His report is out just in time for this weekend’s matchup between Ohio and Oakland.

Culture Editor Georgia Davis dives into the realm of bad movies and why people like them. She analyzes how well certain movies performed in the box office. The article is partnered with a bracket that breaks down how well each movie performed. So if you’re looking for something to do this Sibs Weekend, select a movie from the bracket and make a movie night out of it.

If all else fails, we included a breakdown of some of the big events happening this weekend, such as the Harry Potter movie marathon and the Sibs Weekend concert with A Boogie wit da Hoodie. Check out our Weekender Briefs for even more suggestions.

We hope your Sibs Weekend goes incredibly well. Stick with The Post even after the weekend ends to read a recap of Sibs Weekend events and to find more meme content in the future.
