Boston Advance Screening: DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: THE LONG HAUL (free passes available)

diary of a wimpy kid the long haul, boston, movie screening

Let’s talk kids movies. Not all are created equal. Some I totally dig and some just miss the mark. In our house we’ve loved the DIARY OF A WIMPY KID movies. Our preference for kid movies are ones that are real and funny and these movies definetly deliver on both! From the casting of the funny parents to oldest brother Roderick and his band Loded Diper, it’s a good time all around (even for parents!). Regardless of what adventure Greg is up to you can’t help but root for him!

The newest installment of DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: THE LONG HAUL is set to release on May 19, 2017. This time around the Heffley family is off on a family road trip to attend Meemaw’s 90th birthday party and (of course) Greg has a fresh new scheme to get famous! Fans are in for a brand new cast this time around which includes Jason Ian Drucker, Charlie Wright, Owen Asztalos, Tom Everett Scott and Alicia Silverstone. We’re excited to see the new cast take on the comedy series and wonder how they’ll add their own flair and spice to the latest adventure.

Capital One: Taking Boston by Storm AND Investing in the Community

Thank you Capital One for sponsoring this post.

It’s hard to believe that I opened my very first bank account back in 1998! Since then, I’ve switched banks multiple times as my needs and family grew and expanded. Here in Boston, there are a ton of options for your various banking needs, and when I was searching for a new bank a couple of years ago, I spent a ton of time researching and comparing benefits – however one bank stood out to me: Capital One. I’ve been a satisfied customer for two years now, and continue to encourage friends and family to switch their banking to Capital One because of my experience with the company. In addition to the array of services online and a great mobile app, I have also been incredibly impressed with Capital One’s philosophy on philanthropy, community focus, employee empowerment and giving back.

As someone who is drawn to community service and believes we are all responsible for the success and failure of our communities, I appreciate companies that prioritize corporate social responsibility (CSR) and weave it into their business practices. In celebration of Giving Tuesday, Capital One hosted a panel discussion at their Back Bay Café focused on “Investing and Impacting the Community for Good.” Panelists included leaders at the Capital One Foundation, the Red Sox Foundation and Harpoon Brewery, and the conversation was moderated by TODAY Show correspondent Mario Armstrong. There are several ways companies can invest in CSR, and panelists shared the unique ways that their companies invest in the communities that their employees live and work in, underscoring how it not only boosts employee morale, but has alos been an important learning opportunity about employee empowerment. Be sure to view a full recording of the talk here.

Impact can take on many meanings, but one thing is for sure. It takes action. And it can often start with one person.

Don’t know much about Capital One? Good thing I’m here! Rhe company brought their Café concept to the area a couple of years ago and have since opened five locations and will soon be expanding their local presence. My local Café is in Harvard Square and it’s such a fun untraditional bank-like atmosphere. Complete with brand ambassadors ready and willing to answer all your questions, an ATM, and local Peets coffee, it’s a great place to hang out and bank. It’s all part of how Capital One is redesigning the banking experience to empower their customers to feel confident about their relationship with money. No standing in a long silent line and no huge barriers between you and a teller. It’s kind of like hanging out with an old friend. Another benefit? Money workshops within the Cafés that offer 1:1 coaching sessions for f-r-e-e, which is an industry first.

As a Capital One customer I can go on and on about the services and benefits there are, but I truly believe you’ve got to fully experience the range of services to be a true believer.


So, what are you waiting for?
