Before 9/11, my Marine buddies and I would head off to the beach to party for the long weekend.
Over that weekend, Teddy stayed up with friends one night, drinking and swapping bawdy tales about the party times with Jack.
That has the makings of the next “weekend Update” with reverb.
also week-end, 1630s, from week + end (n.). Originally a northern word (referring to the period from Saturday noon to Monday morning); it became general after 1878. As an adjective, "only on weekends," it is recorded from 1935. Long weekend attested from 1900; in reference to Great Britain in the period between the world wars, 1944.
