Go Off to See the Wizard
Want to see “The Wizard of Oz” on the big screen instead of television? Check out local AMC theaters for a limited-run showing of the flick in 3D on IMAX screens.

Guavaween Around the Corner
Here’s one to put on your calendar. The Ybor City Chamber of Commerce is playing host to the 28th Guavaween celebration Oct. 26. The scaled-back version of the event includes a costume contest and other festivities, but runs again this year without the infamous night parade. Visit the chamber online for more details about the more family friendly version of the annual Halloween bash.
More Rain in the Forecast
Hoping for blue skies and sunshine this week? While we might see some, forecasters at the National Weather Service also say Bay area residents should count on some rain. Chances for storms are especially high on Monday and Tuesday.
