Yay for the weekend, and to help us celebrate the end of a long work week, I’ve got a list of fun things to do!
It’s time to think about what you’re going to do with yourself this weekend, first up, get your kids off the couch and interacting with others.
It’s only a matter of time before you find where they’ve wiped those Dorito or flaming hot Cheetoh stains on the couch anyway.
Head over to Secret Headquarters for Fortnite Friday.
Play the popular game with state of the art 4k TV’s with high-end, comfy gaming chairs in the VIP gamer room, 4pm to 9pm for just $7.50,
plus, you get the arcade for free!
That’s an extra 25-35 games they can play.
A great date night starts with art.
Head over to the Rumjahn Gallery for the opening reception for two of the Rumjahn Gallery’s represented artists; Penny MacLeod & Kyle Eckert.
View an eclectic juried mix of art like needlepoint design, ceramic pieces, acrylic on canvas and mixed media.
This event is free, and open to the public!
And we just gave you a sneak peek, Shakespeare in the Park is this weekend!
Sir John Falstaff, staying in Windsor and down on his luck, decides to restore his fortunes by seducing the wives of two wealthy citizens.
Said housewives are faithful to their husbands and they’re seriously offended.
But, our girls also have a sense of humor.
(Hey. Shakespeare doesn’t call them “merry” for nothing.)
Feminine wit and wisdom triumph once again as the amused and annoyed wives teach Sir John a lesson in this bubbling, popular comedy sure to please everyone in the family.
Catch it tonight, Saturday, and Sunday at 6:30 pm on the Willard Library lawn.
PS, it’s free!
