Escape our local football drama with a feel-good sports movie: Hustle. Adam Sandler’s new basketball dramedy is a funny, heartwarming story that delivers a good time, regardless of whether or not you can identify a double-dribble.

It’s an inspiring underdog story that will have you rooting for the two heroes, while enjoying Sandler's signature sense of humor along the way.

Good coffee is more than a beverage, it’s an experience, and the Specialty Bun knows it. Nestled in Arkan Plaza’s extension, Specialty Bun’s hand crafted caffeine cups are certain to elevate the quality of your day. Their menu includes coffee in various shapes and forms: Black, white, pour over, hot, iced… you name it. They also offer an exceptional Chai Latte — we savored their hot mug, but as the scorching summer kicks off, the iced glass is probably a better option. Their brewery opens at 7am every day, which is perfect for an early-morning pick-up for fellow early risers.

???? UNDER THE LAMPLIGHT-
What happens if the entire Earth goes off grid? Aurora is a dystopian thriller where a solar storm causes most of the world to lose power, and the laws of survival kick in. Written by acclaimed screenwriter David Koepp — whose portfolio includes the first two Jurassic Park films, Mission: Impossible, and Angels and Demons — the novel unfolds through the eyes of a suburban family and a tech b’naire struggling to survive the global power outage. The suspenseful page-turner is also a story of triumph, power, and the hope of survival that plays out in a small, scenic, and charming town. The novel is being turned into a major motion picture by Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow, but we highly recommend you read the powerful story before its film version comes to our screens.
