One of the qualities that I pride myself on is my social planning skills. It comes from my love for Google-ing, my desire to be busy all of the time, and my need for adventure. If you find yourself wondering, “What am I going to do this weekend?”, just ask me and I’ll give you options. Here I will line out some options for this upcoming weekend.
Friday, August 10th @ dusk (8:30ish)
Three Dollar Cinema @ Cal Anderson Park: This is a free screening. They offer popcorn, drink, candy and other concessions for purchase. Limited seating so bring a lawn chair. And remember, “Follow the Yellow Brick Road.”
Saturday, August 11th @ dusk (8:30ish)
Fremont Outdoor Movies: This one isn’t free, but only $5 for admission. Doors open at 7pm and they provide some pre-show entertainment. Movie trivia, a photo booth and more.
