Weekend Brief: Super Bowl Weekend, Friday Films, Teen Creative Writing Group, Active Date Night Ideas

Today is Friday, January 31 and it feels as though this month has dragged on for longer than usual. Some say it’s due to the Patriots’ shortened playoff season – others are just glad they can watch this Sunday’s big game without feeling to pressure to call out of work for the duck boat parade!

Here’s what you need to know for this weekend…

1:00PM Friday Films: Cunning Computers & Rogue Robots. Join the North End Library for movies every Friday at 1pm in January! This week’s movie is Westworld.

3:30PM Teen Creative Writing Group. Middle school and high school students are invited to stop by the North End Library and use writing prompts to spark new ideas or work on your own creative writing project. Share your writing if you choose, and get feedback from other teen writers in a supportive, pressure-free space.

Groundhog Day. Groundhog Day is a popular tradition celebrated in the United States and Canada on February 2. It derives from the Pennsylvania Dutch superstition that if a groundhog emerging from its burrow on this day sees a shadow due to clear weather, it will retreat to its den and winter will persist for six more weeks, and if it does not see its shadow because of cloudiness, spring will arrive early.

Super Bowl Sunday. The San Francisco 49ers will take on the Kansas City Chiefs in the 54th Super Bowl. The game will take place at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.
