Summertime is here!

The summer season is upon us and for the first time in quite a while, families and friends are gathering in major ways.
I just kicked off my summer with a bit of tubing down the Santa Fe River. Despite being a native, it was my first time tubing in Florida.
The river was jam-packed! Because of this, I may have overcome my fear of an alligator encounter.
There’s one thing that makes it feel like summer is finally back: major summer movie releases.

Summer at The Movies

There are quite a few fun flicks coming our way:

  • Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
  • Top Gun: Maverick 
  • Jurassic World Dominion
  • Thor: Love and Thunder

and because I particularly love a trippy, whimsical adventure story, Three Thousand Years of Longing.
Here at The Portico we’re preparing for a few blockbuster events ourselves:

  • Mindi’s Habitat House Dedication – Date TBD
  • Art + Open Mic Night – Aug. 26
  • Remembrance Project Memorial Dedication – Aug. 29

“Let’s turn and burn” into the summer!
Whether it’s a festival, movie night or special event, I sincerely hope you and your family take every opportunity to celebrate this season.
