Best Weekend Ever: What HuffPost Women Readers Did May 4th-6th

Best Weekend Ever

In this week's installment of #BestWeekendEver, the editors are again in awe of how much fun HuffPost Women readers have during their Fridays, Saturday and Sundays. This past weekend was one that lent itself easily to celebration. It included Cinco de Mayo, the Kentucky Derby and of course, the Supermoon. From flaming margaritas to European adventures to dancing at the "sweatiest club in San Francisco," our certainly readers made the most of the past few days. It's hard to look at the below photographs without getting a little bit jealous.

Just in case you forgot, the premise here is that as much as we look forward to the weekend (even when it's only Monday), it's also fun to look back on the amazing couple of days you just had and appreciate that time.

Check out the photos below, and don't forget to take a snapshot of your favorite moment next weekend and send it to We'll feature it here on Monday in next week's Best Weekend Ever slideshow.

    What made this the best weekend ever? Kayaking on 2011's cleanest urban river (it has come a long way since The Standells "Dirty Water" song). The partly cloudy day inspired a spectacular spontaneous decision to rent tandem kayaks on the Charles River. The trip also proved that the best view of Boston is not from the tallest floor of a building; it's from the level of the water.
