Correction: Mount Plesant film series

The movie playing on July 12 in Lamont Street Park will be Shrek (in Spanish with English subtitles), not Blanca Nieve. It still starts at 9.

Vapiano Mini Dolce

Sometimes you just need a little bite of sweetness to finish off your dinner, but $7 bucks for a giant slab of cake can be excessive for your wallet and your waistline. Vapiano has rolled out three small desserts for just $2.50 each- tiramisu, panna cotta, and strawberries with mascarpone- that should do the trick.

Free Movies in Mount Pleasant

When summer hits, it seems like sunset finds a classic movie playing in every park in the city. Now Mount Pleasant's joined in with a series in Lamont Street Park. You've already missed E.T., but you can still catch Blanca Nieve (Snow White, in Spanish with English subtitles) on July 12, and Raiders of the Lost Ark (with Spanish subtitles) on August 9. Films start at 9, but there'll be music before Raiders starting at 8, and starting at 7 before Blanca Nieve there's raffles and games celebrating independent businesses.
