  • This weekend, enjoy the summer months because they are all too short. Summertime should be full of barbeques, vacations and concerts, before the more serious winter months begin with the annual back to school preparation. New Edition is still on tour, and if you’re in the California area, you can come out and say congratulations to Bad Ass Bobby Brown, who just remarried last week. If you’re in Detroit, both the Jacksons and Aretha Franklin are in town and if you want to take the kiddies out for a movie date, “Brave,” the latest from Pixar, opens this weekend. Enjoy!
