To Do in West Hartford, Weekend of 7/26

What the Cool Kids Are Doing
The cool kids are going to go catch Hamlet (Friday/Saturday at 7:30 and Sunday at 5:30). Sunday is the last performance, so get your butt over to Saint Joseph College already. (Had to run this pic again — I can’t decide if Hamlet is mad at the world or displaying the faux-rage of a death metal rock star).
What the Green Kids Are Doing
They’re recycling their electronics and small metals at 17 Brixton Street on Saturday, between 9 and 12. Bring your electronics and any metal objects you might ordinarily throw away (like pots and pans) and keep your planet karma going strong. Hard drives are wiped to “Department of Defense Standards,” but if I were you, I’d do what we used to do when I worked in IT and we had to zero out a hard drive — we hit it repeatedly with a mallet. Then we took it to the recycling center.
What the Charitable Kids Are Doing
If you’ve got 5 bucks, why not drop it at West Hartford Yoga’s “All Levels Community Yoga” class? Not only do you get the physical benefits of yoga, but your $5 does its own small part in making a difference in this small, shared world. Sunday from 3-4 at West Hartford Yoga, 32 Jansen Court.
What the Shoppers Are Doing
The shoppers will be out at the “Giant Tag Sale” at Congregation Agudas Achim, 1244 North Main Street, on Sunday from 9 to 2. A good way to quench your desire to spend while helping your neighbor (and maybe even your wallet).
