    some problem with time prepositions....

    Recently, I am confused about the usage of the following questions...

    Is the sentence correct?
    I had a date at 6:30 in the evening on May 15, 1999. ?????

    1. on the weekend---mean a weekend, not every weekend?
    on the weekends ----every weekend?
    at the weekend ----only in British English?
    on weekends---- no the ?
    on weekend---- no s ?
    at weekends

    -------------------------------------

    2. why do we use "at night" rather " in the night"
    Is the usage of " at evening" correct?
    why do we add "in the " in front of evening?
    in the evening
    in the night
    at night
    --------------------------------------
