Here are five ways to have fun this weekend.

1. The big movies opening this week are “Think Like A Man Too,” a PG-13 comedy starring Kevin Hart, Gabrielle Union, Wendi McLendon-Covey and La La Anthony; and “Jersey Boys,” an R-rated drama-musical directed by Clint Eastwood.

2. The World Cup rolls on this weekend, with a full slate of games taking place all three days. The big game - U.S. vs. Portugal - is Sunday at 6 p.m. EDT. Go to http://www.espnfc.us/ for schedules, news and more.

3. Friday is Take Your Dog To Work Day. If you have a pooch, and your boss is OK with you bring him or her in to the office, why not give it a try! Dogs relieve stress and make good foot-warmers, among other things. And your co-workers likely will appreciate the fun diversion.

4. Summer officially begins on Saturday, so celebrate the summer solstice with a picnic or other kind of party. If it’s supposed to be hot, make plans for a water-based event, and don’t forget the sun tea and lemonade for refreshment!

5. With kids out of school and probably looking for something to do, now is a good time to visit the library and/or a bookstore and get them loaded up on good books. Reading helps keep kids learning, and it’s fun, too.
