One more chill Friday before the school year starts. Why not spend it with a movie? The Lambertville Library is hosting a free screening of the 90s classic, ‘Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.’ See how the unfortunate inventor, played by Rick Moranis, saves the day after his invention turns his kids into ant-sized miniatures. (Watch out for scorpions!) FREE, 2pm. www.lambertvillelibrary.org
One of our favorite memories from this summer was attending a Trenton Thunder game. Avoid letting Don Henley’s ‘Boys of Summer’ stuck in your head, cause the season is not over at Arm & Hammer Park! This week, the Thunder takes on Reading, the park offers $2 beers through 5th inning, and they’re holding a ‘Moustache Bash’ – if you’re looking for a fun Friday, you can’t go wrong with this one! $11-27, 7pm. www.trentonthunder.com
