Screenshot of the puzzle's grid.

What will I be doing this weekend?


For convenience, I'm also providing the grid in text form:

0100X1000 0101X0101 0100X1111 0100X1101 0101X0011 0100X0110 0100X1001 0101X0010 0100X0101 0100X1001

Step 1

If we take the eight digit binary string provided by each square and convert to ASCII (this can be done by taking the text version of the puzzle and removing the Xs), we get the following 10x10 grid of letters

 HUOMSFIREI
 POBPOSPKKA
 SEPTEMBERF
 YTAEWDTIOT
 WWNSRAIEBE
 XEHPTAYZSR
 SLXGYETUFN
 KFDREQRIXO
 YTHQZHXNOO
 LHZDFOURTN
 

Step 2

This looks like a wordsearch and it contains the words FIRE, SEPTEMBER, FOUR (all going across), SKY, TWELFTH and AFTERNOON (all going down) OPERATION, EASTERN (diagonally going down to the right). There may be more words but I think this has to do with

The Fortnite Season Seven OPERATION: SKY FIRE event which takes place at FOUR in the AFTERNOON EASTERN Time on SEPTEMBER TWELFTH (which lets us know what you'll be doing).
