Scout Weekend: Full moon edition June 21-23

167202315Today marks the official start to summer, but lots of Somerville’s summer staples (say that five times fast) like the Davis Flea and Assembled already started weeks ago.

Luckily, some new events are rolling into town this weekend. Here’s what you don’t want to miss:

Friday

In the Air Tonight: An SLF Prom
Greek Orthodox Church, 29 Central St, 8 p.m. – midnight. $40.
Feeling nostalgic for prom? Miss the 80s? Just want to dress up and drink cocktails? Somerville Local First presents In the Air Tonight, an event to raise funds and party like its, well, the 80s. At this point, tickets are only available at the door, and only for the 21+ crowd – the ticket cost includes “specialty 80s cocktails.” With a local king and queen to be crowned, this event proves you’re never too old to go to prom.

Saturday

Summer Warehouse Sale
Harvard Book Store Warehouse, 14 Park St, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Free.
Bookworms rejoice: The Harvard Book Store will open up its warehouse to those eager to get their read on this summer. Gift cards and frequent buyer discounts won’t be accepted, but you should still stop by if you want to stock up on some good reads for the beach or the pool. The warehouse will be open on Sunday during the same hours.

Joe’s Jazz and Blues Fest 2013
Powderhouse Park, Noon – 6 p.m. Free.
The local jazz and blues fest returns again this year, presented by Mayor Joe Curtatone, once a trumpet player in the Somerville High School Jazz Band. Saturday’s concert is free and will kick off with a performance by Curtatone’s alma mater band. Performances by Darrell Nulisch, the Brett Wahlberg Group, Geoff Bartley & Howie Tarnower, Willie Laws and the Fringe will follow.

Sunday

The Davis Flea in Davis Square returns from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Teele Square Loves Boston
Teele Square, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Boston is strong, but survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing still need our help. Three Teele Square restaurants will donate a portion of their earnings to the Stoneham Marathon Victims Fund, while several bartenders and servers have pledged to donate their entire tip earnings to both the Stoneham fund and the Sean A. Collier Memorial Fund. Stop by True Bistro from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., or Rudy’s Cafe or P.J. Ryan’s between 11:30 a.m. and 5 p.m., to help out. Good food, good drinks, great cause.
