It’s Thursday, and you’ve got no idea what you’ll do for the weekend.
Patch is coming to the rescue. We’ve got the best bets for your done-work-outta-here time. Check our picks for the activities to hit this weekend.

Pricing: Tickets range from $10 to $22
2. ANNUAL NEW HAVEN TOY DRIVE AND CAR SHOW
Where/When: James Logan High School, 1800 H St., Union City; Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
