Five Things You Need to Know Today: July 23
Clever girl... Also, kids jamming, cats and dogs in crime, and a few tips on training your dragon.
1. Even with 89ºF highs and 70ºF lows, there is a chance of showers or thunderstorms during the day and night--a 20 percent chance all day, 50 percent at night. Otherwise, according to the National Weather Service, partly sunny and partly cloudy all night.
2. Music and a day at the beach--through more music. That's what a KidsJam at Berklee: At the Beach is all about. Head to 939 Boylston Street at 11 a.m., where professors Libby Allison and Charlene Ryan will lead your kids in a beach-themed day of music, which should "pepper the palates of a future generation of music-lovers" (according to the description).
3. Want to know The Truth about Cats and Dogs in Crime Fiction? Authors, Clea Simon & Susan Conant are heading to the Brookline Booksmith to dispell many of those myths. Simon’s "Cats Can’t Shoot," features a pet psychic and her trusty tabby who must unravel the tangled yarn of a cat murdering its owner a rare pistol. In Conant’s latest mystery, "Brute Strength," a dog columnist falls prey to a pack of problems: an acquaintance dies, vicious anonymous, and someone threatens.
4. We have a T-rex. And a Big Screen Classic. None other than "JURASSIC PARK." where else but the Coolidge Corner Theatre? Show starts at 7 p.m., it's $9 for tickets, and a classic movie-going experience. Things start to go wrong when a group of dinosaur experts visit a wild animal preserve, where the owner has resurrected dinosaurs through cloning.
5. The Brookline 2012 Outdoor Movie Series continues tonight. The Summer of the Dragon continues with "How to Train Your Dragon." The show starts at about 8:30, or whenever it's dark enough to screen the movie, It's at the Devotion School, and is free!
