Well, would you look at that. It’s the weekend again.
It is African American Music month, and local non-profit Music Moves will be hosting some virtual events this weekend to commemorate the occasion.

Also in movies, the 112 Drive-in is showing Grease and Footloose this weekend. Here’s more about that.
If you feel like singing, Big Box Karaoke is open on a reservation-only basis for karaoke in their private suites. They have a lot of safety measures in place.
