Five Things to Know Today
The Main Library is closed through the weekend, celebrate National Doughnut Day, Threshers open a four game home stand and more is going on in Clearwater Friday (June 1).
1. We hope you are ready for the start of hurricane season. The National Weather Service also debuts it beach hazard warning system. Expect a mostly cloudy day with a high near 85 and a 70 percent chance of rain, according to the National Weather Service.
2. The Threshers open a four game homestand against the Palm Beach Cardinals at 6:30 p.m. at Bright House Field, 601 N Old Coachman Road. It's Beach Night so, the first 2,000 fans get a Winter the Dolphin bobbletail figure. Ticket proceeds also benefit the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.
3. The Main Library is closed Friday through Sunday for air conditioning repairs. It also will be closed June 8-10 so make sure to get any needed materials before then. Or check out any of the other Clearwater Public Library System branches.
4. What better way to celebrate National Doughnut Day, than with some deals. Check out Dunkin' Donuts for a free doughnut with the purchase of any drink. Also, get a free Krispy Kreme doughnut no purchase necessary (the closest one is on US 19 just south of Tampa Road).
5. Looking for laughs? Kathy Griffin is more than just some d list celebrity (her title not ours). The Emmy and Grammy nominated comedian showcases her irreverant wit at 8 p.m. at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 N McMullen Booth Road.
