The daily thunderheads lurking on the western horizon mean summer is officially here in Sarasota.
Meteorologists expect thunderstorms throughout the last weekend of June but that's no reason not to enjoy your weekend. Here are five boredom-busting ways to enjoy a drizzly day:
+ Nurture your nostalgia — Ringling Museum of Art
The art museum from June 14, to Sept. 8, features the work of Georgia O’Keefe, Norman Rockwell and others in a traveling exhibit titled “American Moderns.”
+ Dinner and a movie — Burns Court Cinema and Owen’s Fish Camp
There’s something uniquely relaxing about rain and banyan trees.
The canopy cradling Owen’s Fish Camp and Burns Court Cinema will catch most of the evening drizzle, creating a rainforest-esque atmosphere perfect for a chill night on the town.
20 Feet from stardom, the East and Fill the Void are currently playing at Burns Court.
+ Create do-it-yourself furniture out of found items
Overcome procrastination and boredom by checking out the “Crafty Genes” Youtube series.
Don’t let that hunk of driftwood languish in storage — clean out that overflowing garage and convert your junk into cool furniture that's fun, functional and funky.
+ Impress your significant other with a home-cooked meal inspired by local restaurants
Avoid roads crammed with drivers ill equipped to handle adverse weather, and turn your kitchen into a five star restaurant.
The “In the Kitchen” Youtube series features how-to recipes inspired by cuisine at Sarasota-Manatee originals restaurants, including Mar Vista Dockside Restaurant and Pub and Michael’s on East.
+ Curl up with a cup of your favorite coffee and the Observer — Perq Coffee Bar
Check out Sarasota’s newest coffee house and catch up on the news of the week.
Read what residents are buzzing about over a cappuccino with a copy of the Longboat, East County or Sarasota Observer, or the Pelican Press at the midtown location.
