There is always something to do in Winston, but this weekend there is a plethora of events. A little something for everyone. So get out and do SOMETHING before school starts. Make your plans today!

If you have never been to the Cinema Under the Stars at Reynolda House, get there THIS Friday for An American in Paris. Take a picnic and blanket to the historic home of Richard and Katharine Reynolds and enjoy this classic flick. It is $5 per person or $20 for a car. The film begins at 9 p.m. This is a perfect thing to do with your family or a date.

Don’t leave Reynolda just yet… The House is opening a new exhibit called The Art of Seating: Two Hundred Years of American Design. This exhibit opens THIS Saturday. There will be a collection of forty chairs from modern design to shaker and everything in-between. It runs through the end of the year. I’m so excited to see all of the designs and their significance in furniture history.

If classic movies or history isn’t your cup of tea… the Toast and Jam at Twin City Hivemight be your cup of joe instead! I didn’t even know this was a “thing” until I read Nik Snacks post about it today.

“Come taste and see the artisanal toast bar with several types of locally-sourced, handmade breads, jams, jellies, honey and other toppings paired with local coffee roasters such as Krankies Coffee, Counter Culture Coffee and Beans Boro Roasters.”

Two of my favorite things toast and coffee plus music! Sounds delicious :)

None of these things your jam?? (sorry couldn’t help myself)

Then make your way to the finals of the Winston-Salem Open. See how Greensboro native and winner of the WS Open John Isner and his buddies are playing before they make their way up to NYC for the US Open.
