If you're looking to take advantage of the great outdoors before the next two days of super-stifling heat hit (it'll be a manageable 80 degrees tonight), there are a couple of events taking place in the parks.
Flutist and Latin Grammy Award nominee Dave Valentin will perform tonight at Wave Hill, at 7 p.m., part of the park's “Sunset Wednesdays” and the Bronx Council on the Arts' “Bronx Beats” concert series. The show is free with admissions to the Wave Hill grounds ($8 for adults, $4 for students and seniors and $2 for kids over six.) Visit www.wavehill.org or www.bronxarts.org for more info.
For those with little ones, Friends of Crotona Park will be showing Justin Bieber's movie (they made a Justin Bieber movie?) “Never Say Never,” at the park's amphitheater, at Charlotte Street and Crotona Park East. Show starts at 8 p.m.; come early to have your face painted by Chussie the Clown. The film is free, but bringing your own blankets and chairs is recommended. Call 718-716-1128, ext. 10 for more.
