It's better to use DayOfWeek. See here for details: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.datetime.dayofweek(v=vs.110).aspx

It would be something like:

<% if date.DayOfWeek <> DayOfWeek.Friday and date.DateOfWeek <> DayOfWeek.Saturday then %>

I got the following errors on both of yours
@: jss1199: C32093: 'Of' required when specifying type arguments for a generic type or method.
@TheAvenger:BC30469: Reference to a non-shared member requires an object reference.

so what is wrong with this?
'if  System.DateTime.Now.DayOfWeek  = "Saturday"   Or System.DateTime.Now.DayOfWeek <> "Friday" Then
error: System.FormatException: Input string was not in a correct format.

If you look up the documentation for DayOfWeek (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.datetime.dayofweek(v=vs.110).aspx) (instead of making others do your job for you) you'll see that it returns an enum, not a string.

DateTime.Now.DayOfWeek = DayOfWeek.Saturday
