It's the Weekend!


It's Friday, and this afternoon would be a good time to view an art exhibit. Before you head home from work, take a walk through Anne Dennis' "Despair to Destiny" exhibit at Jackson Municipal Art Gallery. To find other local places to browse art, go to the Gallery Listings. For more ideas on how to start your weekend in a variety of ways, see what the JFP Best Bets are for the weekend.

This Saturday morning, wake up early and have breakfast to support a local high school. The Murrah High School Band will have a pancake breakfast at Applebee's on County Line Road at 7:30 a.m. Later on, there's more school events. From 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., head to the Jackson Convention Complex (105 E. Pascagoula St.) for the 2nd Annual First Day Program, "Getting into the Groove for School" featuring free haircuts, entertainment, and more than 40 vendors. When hunger approaches, let the JFP Restaurant Listings and the Menu Guide be your guides to finding the right meal.

Sunday, catch a play, film, or open mic night event. "The Dixie Swim Club" play ends at the Actor's Playhouse (121 Paul Truitt Lane, Pearl); call 601-664-0930. Looking for a movie at a local theatre, the JFP Movie Finder has you covered. Check out films from Art House Cinema Downtown at the Russell C. Davis Planetarium (201 E. Pascagoula St.); visit or end the night at the Nameless Poets Open-mic for poets and musicians at Suite 106 from 7-10 p.m. for $5; or $3 to perform; call 601-720-4640.
