Happy July!

There is always so much to do during high-season in a tourist town like ours, and as usual I've provided many of my favorite options below. But sometimes, don't you find that the best thing to do in summer is NOTHING? ... in a good location of course! So after you've filled your schedule with must-do events, save a date or two to just relax and recharge at the beach or in your own backyard this month. ENJOY IT ALLbecause before you know it we'll be looking at Labor Day!

p.s. As I write, there are still a few tickets left for U2 @ Mohegan Sun on Tuesday, 7/3. GO! (and if you do, look for me jumping up and down ;-)

and if you please

In summertime, it usually takes a  rainy day to get me into a dark theater, but there may be a few exceptions this month. The Beatles freshly restored and remastered Yellow Submarine will be shown at the Jane Pickens on 7/11 (>click the poster to view the trailer) and Gimmie Shelter is playing at the Greenwich Odeum on 7/27.
