Well, this weekend's going to be extra long.
Consider that many places are closing on Monday, July 5 in honor of the Fourth of July holiday. And consider that several places are getting the weekend going a smidge early, on Thursday rather than the traditional weekend beginning of Friday at 3:20 p.m.
Wherever you are on a Friday, isn't that about the time the unwinding starts?
The Americana at Brand is starting the holiday off on Thursday, July 1. The Glendale shopping center has invited the Glendale Renaissance Orchestra to stop by and play pops and big band and the Star Spangled Banner and other get-everyone-moving tunes.
There will be a laser light show, too. Of course. Americana! You.
