Friday, June 22nd – Sunday, June 24th – After a long hot week, we all deserve a Subway Series right? Fortunately your New York Yankees will be heading to Citi Field once again to challenge the Mets to a best of three series starting tonight (bearing a storm). The stellar pitching match up sees Yankee’s legend Andy Pettitte taking on Niese. (New York Yankees)
Music & Entertainment
Friday, June 22nd – Movie release day. Quiet night tonight? Check out these two polar opposite releases coming out today. If animated fare is what you like then check out, “Brave” (PG). The story follows Merida, an aspiring archer and impetuous daughter of royalty. The Scottish themed flick features the voices of Emma Thompson and Billy Connolly. What did our sixteenth President do with his spare time? Maybe, “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” (R) can answer that question. The retelling of history has the Tim Burton seal of approval so it could be worth seeing. If not for that, hey at least it’s in 3D. Just don’t blame us if these both stink.
Saturday, June 23 – Sunday, June 24th – Heavy Metal legends Metallica are not only killer musicians but brilliant promoters. This weekend marks the bands landmark, “Orion Music & More Festival” taking place in Atlantic City, NJ. The two day event will feature a variety of bands spanning several genres, with Metallica themselves headlining both days. The LocalBozo crew will be there so tweet us out and let’s party!
