In this week’s Weekend Finds: It’s your chance to let the children watch a movie while you get dinner, one of the area’s largest craft shows comes back to town and Miss Virginia will stop by a talent show on Sunday to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network.
Movie night equals smooth Friday night
You have worked a full week, and on Friday evening – once you make your way through traffic and pick up your child – treat yourself to a smooth evening by stopping by our local Wegmans to see the very entertaining movie “Diary of a Wimpy Kid”
This move is free, and dinner will be a breeze since Wegmans has plenty of tasty options to choose from.
Movie time begins at 7 p.m. at the large grocery store, at 14801 Dining Way in Woodbridge.
For more information call 703-763-5500.
House Party – No adults allowed
The House provides a win/win night for all! A fun place where children in grades four through 12 can have a great time playing X-Box 360, Basketball, Air Hockey, and it’s one of the few places kids can skateboard!
The party starts every Friday at 7 and lasts until 10 p.m. The cost is a mere $5, which includes food! Some snacks and drinks cost extra.
The House is a modest looking building, right behind BJ’s Wholesale Club off of the Prince William Parkway, at14000 Crown Court, Suite 105 in Woodbridge.
