Free Time Fridays: Music, Entertainment and Nightlife

Molly Maid knows your time is valuable, which is why we created the What’s Your Time Worth Calculator to show you exactly how much time you’re giving up to clean your home. In our new weekly blog series — Free Time Fridays, we want to explore the novelty of free time. Instead of spending your much anticipated weekend chained to your home, take the opportunity to enjoy the things you love most. Each Friday we will feature a new bundle of activities to enjoy while Molly Maid does your dirty work…literally.

The beautiful thing about summer is the endless amount of outdoor activities, festivals and fairs. No matter where you are, outdoor entertainment and live music is a vital part of summertime. As we kick off our weekend, we want to suggest a few of our favorite summer entertainment activities.

Live music: Websites such as Ticketmaster and StubHub are great places to start when finding live entertainment. For musical junkies, summer is the prime time for massive outdoor music festivals. Lollapalooza, Newport Folk Festival , Outside Lands, Summerfest and Pitchfork are all summer music festivals that attract people from around the country. No matter where you are or what your palette prefers, there is bound to be a festival in your radius that caters to your musical preference.

Festivals: Often time, festivals are going on in your area you don’t even know about. The National Cherry Festival, Bacon Bash, Gilroy Garlic Festival, and Watermelon Festival are just a few unique festivals going on in the next couple months.

Wineries and breweries: Escape to wine country and enjoy the summer day sipping on your favorite wines and brews.  You don’t have to be a wine connoisseur to enjoy the finer things in life! You won’t regret it once you’re soaking up that Vitamin D with a crisp Pinot gris in hand.

Happy Hour: Can’t get out of town? Take the afternoon off from errands and obligations to decompress and fully enjoy the sweet taste of summer. If you want to impress your friends, try hosting your own cocktail soiree featuring some home crafted drinks.

Sports games: It’s baseball season folks! Even if you don’t enjoy watching America’s favorite pastime, you can’t refute the excitement of going to a live game. With 30 current major league baseball teams in the United States, it’s about time you hopped on that baseball bandwagon!
