As Tom and the crew continue on the Fantastic Voyage there’s a plenty to do on dry land…

This weekend, there’s much to do for everyone on your entertainment list. Art abounds in Florida, which boast two separate art exhibitions or show this weekend, while those down South can chill to the smooth sounds of Anthony Hamilton in Birmingham, Alabama. Keyshia Cole and Alicia Keys continue their cross-country runs with Chrisette Michele and Miguel, respectively, along for the ride. Chris Tucker is in the Chi this weekend on standup tour and on the East Coast both jazz and soul are on the menu in Pennsylvania. Jackie Robinson’s story is told in “42” but if you just want a few laughs, “Scary Movie V” should help with that. Here’s more of what’s in store this weekend.
