Every year, I hit the theater to see a summer blockbuster. This year, I fear there will be none. Some theaters are open now, but customers are still a bit leery of gathering in groups indoors. Instead, at 8:15pm, you can enjoy a blockbuster from another summer at 7th Floor Movies on the roof of Hurst Conference Center (1601 Campus Dr, 817-581-0044). Raiders of the Lost Ark tickets are $3-5 at ShowTix4U.com (advance only). Concessions and cash bar available. Bring your own lawn chair.

While I have had a cheeseburger in paradise at Jimmy Buffett’s restaurant in Key West, Florida, I’ve never actually seen the man live. Nor have I attended a concert at Red Rocks, an item on my bucket list. With travel and live music on hold, what’s a girl to do? For one thing, I can log on to Margaritaville.tv/live at 8pm and view a free rebroadcast of a Jimmy Buffett & The Coral Reefer Band concert filmed previously at Red Rocks. There’s even a chat feature should you want to interact with other Parrot Heads.

Brunch is not just a noun anymore. You can have brunch, go to brunch, or tell your friends, “Let’s brunch!” I can do all of these things at 10am at Poured (1601 E Debbie Ln, Mansfield, 817-453-7919) during their first brunch of the season. Along with the requisite mimosas, other featured items include chicken and waffles, shrimp and grits, and something called Hangover Hash. This is expected to be a popular event –– come on, they had me at “brunch” –– so reservations are required.

Our office just relocated. You have no idea how many old confidential documents you have in your possession until you tackle a move. If you’re in the same boat, pack it all up and head to St. Peter & St. Paul’s Anglican Church from 10am to 12pm. As a fundraiser, they are hosting a Secure Shredding Day in their parking lot at 3900 Morris Ln, Arlington. Cost is $10 per file box or bag (13-gallon) with proceeds benefiting their Youth-In-Mission program. Call 817-456-1904.
