Cue the mood music, Bainbridge. It’s the last weekend of summer.
Bittersweet though the occasion may be, however, there’s no shortage of entertainment options round the Rock over the next few days for you to enjoy, thus taking your mind of the fact that (sorry about this in advance) WINTER IS COMING!
You should definitely spend some time Friday outside enjoying the weather, after all it is set to be a nice one: with a forecasted high of 73 degrees.
Pick a shady spot and catch up on that book you started in June and said you’d finish before July, water your garden one last time (or don’t), or maybe soap up a tarp out in the front yard and take one final end of summer slip-and-slide to cap off the dog days.
Whatever you do, consider ending the day over at Bainbridge High, where, at 7 p.m., you can revel in that favorite fall spectacle: football. The Spartans are hosting King’s Way Christian and searching for their first win of the season.
Then, on Saturday, after you have lost your voice cheering and/or sustained the inevitable wounds so inextricably linked with slip-and-sliding, you’ll probably want something a little less intense to fill your day.
No such luck, because Saturday sees the highly anticipated return of the Taste of Lynwood block party.
After a four-year hiatus, the much-beloved shindig is set to make a triumphant return from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. The festivities will include live music, plenty of tasty food options and also games and vendor booths.
The action begins at 9:30 a.m. with the 1-mile Baker Hill Challenge. The first male and female to the top will win the coveted crowns of King and Queen of Baker Hill.
The main stage musical lineup includes neighborhood favorites and big-time guests, as well.
Enjoy a day of rest Sunday, or maybe dig out your scarves and sweaters now, and gear up for the week ahead, Bainbridge. It’s been a great summer — smoke and all — and the best is surely yet to come. Be sure to check back every Friday for new Best Bets.
