Looking for ways to keep you out of the cold this weekend? Here are just some of the great events going on in our county.

After the success of Knocked Up, director Judd Apatow has come back with This is 40 (15). Actors Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann take on their pervious roles from Knocked Up, as husband and wife, Pete and Debbie who are stuck in a marriage rut. As Debbie goes into denial about turning 40, Pete also celebrates this milestone. This forces them into an emotional spring clean, which promises to be a funny look into how a couple can put the spring back into their marriage.
