Thursday: Movies By Moonlight Presents “Outsourced”

With the mid-August evenings cooling down nicely, Booth Amphitheatre is the place to see movie. Movies By Moonlight presents Outsourced, Thursday August 18, 2011.

In case you missed it, Outsourced is an acclaimed and entertaining film.

PG-13: After his entire department is outsourced to India, an American novelty salesman named Todd heads there to train his replacement. Initially Todd doesn’t make any effort to embrace his new temporary home but over time Todd overcomes his resistance and finds a way to celebrate the cultural differences between the U.S. and India. In Hindi and English with English subtitles.

Pre-movie entertainment with “Destination India”, choreographed by Sowmya Gopal and Kowsalya, organized by Hum Sub.

Gates open at 7 – movie starts at dusk. Tickets are $3 for adults. Children 12 and under are free.

Saturday: Peaches & Tomatoes

Peaches, peppers, tomatoes and eggplants continue to reign supreme during August at the farmers markets. We’re talking ginormous German Johnson tomatoes the size of a softball; striped purple eggplants; yellow Emery peaches from the Sandhills and a rainbow of peppers.

Take time on this lazy August weekend to vist one of our fabulous farm markets on Saturday morning:

Saturday: RailHawks vs. Strikers

The Ft. Lauderdale Strikers will be in town on Saturday night to play our hometown RailHawks.

The ‘Hawks are number 1 in the NASL this season, but 1-1 against the Strikers. Saturday’s match should be an exciting one under the gentle August sky – perfect weather for futbol.
