Yes, it’s that time of year again. If you haven’t already gotten your back-to-school supplies, you’d better get them now since school starts again for many kids around the country after the holiday weekend. Some have already started but you know sales will be jumping off this weekend so make sure to catch them. Mary J. Blige and D’Angelo are heading around the country on their well-reviewed “Liberation” tour and The Tom Joyner Family Reunion celebrates its 10th year down in Orlando, Florida this weekend. Jay-Z and Friends head to Philadelphia for the Made in America concert which includes performances by Drake, D’Angelo, Janelle Monae and more in the city’s Fairmount Park. NFL preseason roars on before the official start of the season on Wednesday, September 5 at 8:30 on NBC with the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants facing the Dallas Cowboys from Met Life stadium. Whatever you do this holiday weekend, stay safe and have fun.

9. Apparently my 260lbs is too much for the actual vines in the Hawaiian jungles to hold me without breaking and me falling hundreds of feet. So for safety purposes, I'm forced to swing thru #Jumanjj on wires strong enough to hold 12 adult buffaloes and 1 adult Rock. #OnSet #Jumanji #IronicallyIEatBuffaloDailyForLunch #MoreManThanNatureKnowsWhatToDoWith
