The Amazing Spidermanopened in theaters this morning at midnight and it’s received glowing reviews.  For starters, there is no Mary Jane, but we get to meet Gwen Stacy, Peter Parker’s first love.  We also meet Peter’s parents before they were killed.  The movie is action packed with high octane thrills, fight scenes and special effects.  If you see any movie tomorrow, we suggest one of the true classic American characters, Spiderman.

Wrap up your night or get an early start to it with the famous Macy’s Fireworks on the Hudson River.  This year marks the 34th Anniversary of igniting the night with fireworks.  Over 40,000 fireworks will be set off to a well orchestrated soundtrack that will last about 25-minutes.  This year, Katy Perry and Kenny Chesney will perform.
