What to do this weekend.

Welcome everyone! We hope your first week of school was a good one. If you need to unwind a bit this weekend, try A Walk in the Woods at the Jacksonville Arboretum on Saturday. There are two walks: one focused on fitness, beginning at 8:00 am, and one nature-oriented, beginning at 9:30. Both are fun and informative. Both are free and open to the public. See the link for details.

More of an indoor person? The Florida Theatre will be showing Some Like is Hot Sunday at 2:00 pm. This Oscar and Golden Globe winning film is considered an all-time classic. Take a break at see it in a theater. See this Florida Theatre link for location and time – only $7.50!

Welcome to the heart of summer here in Jacksonville. The heat is here to stay, but at least we’ll stay in the double digits all weekend and won’t go near 100 degrees for a while.

One positive about summer in Florida is the availability of fresh produce – not just supermarket fresh, but farmer’s-market fresh! Take a break this weekend to get some fresh air and some fresh food!

Weekend Fun!

As a former law school student, I know that law school can take up most of your time, but you still need to take a break from ‘hitting the books.’  In addition to the numerous restaurants, bars, and dance clubs located in Jacksonville, Jacksonville and the surrounding areas have special events happening every week.  Maybe you like the circus, theatre, or symphony, or maybe you have always been a horse lover, if so, then Jacksonville has an event that you might be interested in this weekend.  Additionally, with just a short drive down I-95 to Saint Augustine, you can see the Saint Augustine Film Festival hosted by Flagler College–Saturday night’s special guest is Pamela Poitier, daughter of Sidney Poitier.  Now that you are ‘in the know,’ make sure you don’t miss out on the fun!
