Top Spots For Shopping In South Florida
MIAMI (CBS4)-This weekend is all about you, family time and even some love for man’s best friend.
If you’re looking for some quiet time, check out what’s opening at the box office or if fun times with the kids or great dining sparks your interest then this weekend in South Florida is all yours.
They’re blue and they’re back. We’re talking about a new twist on the classic Smurf cartoon, The Smurfs. When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the Smurfs out of their village, they tumble from their magical world and into ours. Katy Perry lends her voice to the tiny blue character. The Smurfs hit the box office Friday and is rated PG.
Also opening this weekend, is Steve Carell and Julianne Moore’s ‘Crazy, Stupid Love.’ Their marriage falls apart so Carell’s character has to navigate the single scene with a little professional help from Ryan Goslin…make that a lot of help. Crazy, Stupid Love is rated PG-13.
The dog days of summer are here, and they’re coming to the Village of Merrick Park this Sunday. From 2 to 6 p.m. you and Fido can parade around the plaza. Your furry friend will have chances to win prizes for Best Attire and Best Personality. The Doggy Day is all sponsored by the Humane Society of Greater Miami which will also be holding an Adopt-a-Thon.
