Arbor Annie’s Weekday Picks – July 31-August 4

In some way it feels like our summer really starts this week. My daughter is done with both swimming and softball, so we really have a free schedule. Hopefully that leaves us free for more activities.

Arbor Annie's Weekday Picks - July 31-August 4

Ann Arbor District Library has a couple of great events this week. My daughter always loves Eggcellent Engineering (an egg drop experiment) which is at the Downtown Branch of AADL on Monday at 2p. The clay charm events are always fun (Thursday is Cacti Clay Charms at Malletts Creek at 2p). Tuesday is also their kickoff to the August series Ultimate Design Challenge.

Evening activities this week include National Night Out Safety Fair on Tuesday at Lillie Park, First Wednesday Food Truck Rally on Wednesday at Ann Arbor Farmers Market, Taste of Music at Pittsfield Farmers Market on Thursday, and First Friday events at Domino Farms, Kerrytown, and Ypsilanti.

Movies

Now that school is out, the matinees (Free or Discounted) are a great option. Quality 16, Emagine, and Cinemark (Rave) all have movies this week. Quality 16 has Trolls Monday-Friday. Rave and Imagine are both showing The Angry Birds Movie this week – Emagine on Wednesday and Saturday and Rave on Tuesday.

Summer Movie Clubhouse - Dollar Movies at Cinemark

I’m sure my daughter wants to see the Emoji movie which opened last week. Did anyone see it? Should I talk her out of it?
We have reviews including parental guidance of several other shows still in theaters including Spiderman: HomecomingWonder Woman and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Also in theaters are Cars 3 and Despicable Me 3 which I have yet to see.

Looking forward to the Weekend

As the end of summer approaches, more people are on vacation. There is typically a decrease in the weekend events.
