People have been working hard cleaning up from the storm and without power families are probably getting cabin fever. The weekend is here so take a few hours to enjoy a little time out of the house. Here are a few suggestions.
Catch a Movie
Get out and get lost in a movie for a while. Especially good for those without power and already tired of marathon Monopoly games by candlelight.
Where: PJ Cinemas and Loews AMC Stony Brook Theatre
Some stores have gotten power back and are vowing to open their doors this weekend.
Where: Downtown Rocky Point, Smith Haven Mall and Downtown Port Jefferson
Check Out a Book
Libraries across the region have power back are open for regular business. They also are opening their doors to residents who need a place to recharge electronic devices and use their WiFi.
Where: North Shore Public Library, Port Jefferson Library and Comsewogue Library
Go To a Museum
Take the kids for an educational adventure. They’ve been out of school all week so kids are probably dying to get back to the classroom (not!)

Take a Walk
Stretch the legs and get to a wide open space, free of tress and debris so everyone can run around and play.
