Movies at Marymoor: ‘Jurassic Park’ & ‘Grease’
Marymoor Park: 6046 West Lake Sammamish Pkwy NE, Redmond; 9:15–11:30 p.m., $25 per car, all ages
Every Wednesday and Thursday until the end of August, Marymoor Park will host a drive-in cinema with your favorite classic movies. This week, you can catch “Jurassic Park” (the original of course) and “Grease” (no remake, technically, but “Grease 2” didn’t add much) on the big screen. It’s recommended to purchase tickets in advance, but tickets will also be sold at entry if space allows. There will be food trucks on site so you can enjoy dinner and a movie! Is this not a great physically-distanced set up for you and your bubble, be that a party of one or more? “We go together like rama lama lama ka dinga da dinga dong…”.

BLM July Book Club: ‘How to Be an Antiracist’ by Ibram X. Kendi
Ada’s Technical Books & Café: online event; 10–11 a.m., register at link, free
Ada’s will host an ongoing book club that looks to create space within community for discussing race. The literature chosen looks to address anti-Black racism.

The moderator, Nathalie M., will sometimes send discussion topics prior to the meetings; there is also room for participants to add intro curriculum, including articles to expand the discussion. At the link above, you can see the full list of books for 2020. So, if you’re looking to find a book club community or just for a great new reading list, check out Ada’s.

They say the best things in life are simple, like the fresh, delicious produce from local, POC-led farms. The produce will be available every Saturday throughout the summer.

NW Bloom Farm: 15410 NE 124th St, Redmond; 10 a.m.–3p.m., $4/pint or $6/quart, all ages
What’s better than freshly picked, organic blueberries? Probably not much. Do yourself a favor and head out to the Blueberry U-Pick to fill up on delicious blueberries. As a heads up, the farm is not perfectly groomed, so expect to come across thorns, molehills and bees. Close-toed shoes and sun protection (hats especially) are recommended for all visitors. You can also pick up some pre-picked blueberries if you’re not in the mood to pick them yourself.
Consent Academy: online event; 2–4 p.m., register with firstname.lastname@example.org, donations encouraged, all ages
This monthly chat is a great resource for everyone, as learning about consent culture is something that affects us all. Whether you’re a teen or a senior, the importance of consent is still paramount in day-to-day life. The discussion will look at current consent culture in our communities and within ourselves. How consent can be affirmed or violated will also be discussed. The afternoon invites everyone who is ready to approach the discussion with an open mind. This will be a great space to build connections and take steps to create cultures of consent.
