Nothing like beating the heat by watching a summertime blockbuster. While I’m slumped over my desk blasting the AC and drinking copious amounts of cold brew, I’m turning my attention to the summer schedule of releases. I’m not a die-hard comic book fan but lately, these Marvel movies have me intrigued. Maybe it’s Chris Hemsworth in Thor regalia, or maybe it’s Taika Waititi’s sense of humor, or maybe it’s the surprise casting of a ripped Natalie Portman in a rom-com style plot line.

Also on the docket, for anyone with a 5+ year old (the four-year-old in my life had moments of sheer terror followed by imaginative role-playing), is Lightyear, the Pixar tale of Toy Story's Buzz Lightyear. Similarly, in a nod to my 90’s childhood, is Jurassic World Dominion, featuring OG dinosaur survivors, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, and Sam Neill. For the more cerebral thrill-seekers, check out Everything Everywhere All At Once.


Here’s a recap of the week’s top stories:

  • Post-4th, we looked at hangover-free refreshments for the over 30 crowd. Margarita without the booze? No problem. California sober? We got you. Check these drinks out.

  • While most investors are reducing venture investing, this firm is increasing its pipeline of deals. We’re talking about iconic investor SV Angel and the growth fund it just raised for later rounds. Find out more.

  • Yesterday, we discussed the trends in acquisition deals and debt financing as markets continue to rattle the private sphere. See what’s happening.
