The first days of spring, unfortunately, came with gray, hazy and devastating skies. Sad! When you’re done twiddling your thumbs and hoping, wishing, with all ten fingers crossed, more sunny days, get on with these things to do this weekend instead.
I will go straight to the point. by Olivia Rodrigo drive home 2 u premieres today, March 25, on Disney+, but we (see: Olivia and I) will forgive you if you’d rather wait until Saturday night to press play. You need the morning to re-memorize and re-feel “ACID”! I understand. Same. Now, with Rodrigo’s heads sated, here are some other things to do (and eat) on the weekend if you’re out of ideas. No shame if you’ll just review drive home 2 u. I know I will.
Things to do on a rainy weekend:
Turn off those lights for Earth Hour
We should do a lot for the Earth. To recycle. Take shorter showers. No more single-use plastics. Hold Big Oil accountable for its heinous contributions to the environment. This Saturday, do a good deed for the Earth by participating in turning off your lights at 8:30 p.m. It’s not a lot! But it is something.

Drive home to Olivia Rodrigo
The weather is not looking good this weekend. Instead of Braving Storm Warnings, Stay Home and Enjoy Making “SOUR,” the Debut Album from TIME Magazine’s 2021 Artist of the Year, Billboard’s 2022 Woman of the Year (the first Asian American to receive this honor) and Grammy®-nominated singer-songwriter Olivia Rodrigo. OLIVIA RODRIGO: drive home 2 u closes the chapter of the teenage superstar’s critically acclaimed album, recounting Rodrigo’s memories of writing, feeling and, of course, driving through a familiar road trip from Salt Lake City to Los Angeles. And if you’re looking forward to new OR tracks, the film comes with new live arrangements of Rodrigo’s songs and never-before-seen footage from the making of the album.
