Weekends in Connecticut: Celebrate Dad with a movie, sailing & more!

Better Weekends

It’s Father’s Day weekend! Lots to do and see with Dad!

OK this movie has DAD written all over it…and maybe mom too…I LOVE ALL THE ACTORS IN THIS!!!


The world’s most lethal odd couple – bodyguard Michael Bryce (Ryan Reynolds) and hitman Darius Kincaid (Samuel L. Jackson) – are back on another life-threatening mission. Still unlicensed and under scrutiny, Bryce is forced into action by Darius’s even more volatile wife, the infamous international con artist Sonia Kincaid (Salma Hayek). As Bryce is driven over the edge by his two most dangerous protectees, the trio get in over their heads in a global plot and soon find that they are all that stand between Europe and a vengeful and powerful madman (Antonio Banderas). Joining in the fun and deadly mayhem is Morgan Freeman as…well, you’ll have to see.

It's rated R and considered an  Action/Adventure, Comedy – I AM IN!!! Take a look!

All Father’s Day Weekend at Brownstone Exploration & Discovery Park - Dad gets a free upgrade to the Wakeboard Pass with the purchase of the Adventure Pass. Take the leap of faith from the top of the 75 foot cliffs. Then spend the day zipping over water with Connecticut's longest zip line.

This weekend West Hartford is celebrating Juneteenth with a Juneteenth Celebration on Saturday and Sunday! Juneteenth marks the day in 1865 when a group of enslaved people in Galveston, Texas, finally learned that they were free from the institution of slavery. This announcement came almost two and a half years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. Juneteenth is also known as Freedom Day, Jubilee Day, Liberation Day, and Emancipation Day.

There will be events, ceremonies, food, music and special guest speakers both days starting at 10:30 am – for a complete listing of the Juneteenth celebrations can be found on Facebook- look for WH Juneteenth Celebration 2021

Motivational and inspirational greeting.
