Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks – November 13-15

There are a few Christmas events on the events calendar this weekend…please don’t shoot the messenger, I’m just reporting on the events not running them.

Arbor Annie's Weekend RoundupI’ll admit to not being totally blameless here. My husband and I hung our Christmas lights last Saturday while the weather was somewhat decent. In our defense, they are not turned on. We would have waited until this weekend, but I will be in Indiana meeting with other bloggers from around the country who run sites similar to mine (hyperlocal bloggers). I’ve already developed some great ideas from our online conversations and can’t wait to meet them all in person.

One of the ideas that I have taken away from my Hyperlocal group is the idea of a mascot to take pictures with around town. Earlier this week I introduced Arbor Annie, the new Ann Arbor with Kids mascot. You’ll be seeing her pictures around town and maybe you’ll even get to see her in person. I have two sizes of Arbor Annie, so maybe I’ll take one with me and leave one with my husband and daughter to take on their weekend adventures.

Weekend Long Events this Weekend

There are a number of theater productions this week. Skyline High School will be performing Beauty and the Beast starting this weekend. Pioneer High School’s run of Grease which started last weekend concludes with 3 shows this weekend.

Also this weekend the University of Michigan Museum of Natural History is holding one of their Exhibit Workshops on Human Evolution where the public can provide feedback on exhibit design for the new museum building.

Finally, this weekend marks the kickoff of Lights Before Christmas at the Toledo Zoo with a  tree lighting on Friday night. The weather looks pretty decent on Saturday and Sunday which would make those great nights to visit.

Movies This Weekend

The Free matinees at Quality 16 may have ended last weekend, but there are still lots of movies in theater. The Peanuts Movie opened last week with numerous showings still at both Rave and Quality 16. My parents almost took my daughter last weekend while my husband and I saw Spectre, but they decided to see the special Home Alone screenings. We were pleased since we want to see The Peanuts Movie too. Goosebumps and Hotel Transylvania 2 are still in both theaters as well.

The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn in 3D plays at Michigan Theater on Saturday as part of both the Family Friendly Film Series and the Steven Spielberg Series.

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks

Arbor Annie has looked through the Weekend Events calendar and made her top picks for the weekend. It shouldn’t be much of a surprise that All About Owls at Independence Lake made her list. She decided to also show her solidarity with other birds and pick “We Want Mo’!”: A Mo Willems Celebration at Pittsfield Branch of AADL (Mo Willems is well known for his Pigeon series of books).
