Here are some free things to do this week.
Monday, July 30, 8:55 p.m. @ Mueller Park.
Uptown Minneapolis Clothing Swap
It happens. Sometimes we purchase clothing duds that sit in our closet for too long, whether the fit is off, it's not quite our style, or we just simply like the idea of the piece, not the reality. Don't let those items take up precious real estate in your closet. Instead, round them up and take them to this clothing swap. All you need to gain admission is bring 10 items in good condition to trade, be they jeans, tees, purses, shoes, or dresses. Guys and gals will be shopping for good finds, and there will be snacks and drinks while you explore. Anything left over will be donated to homeless teen resource organization YouthLink MN. [Editor's note: This event was originally scheduled for July 10.] 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Monday. ArcStone Technologies, 2836 Lyndale Ave. S., Minneapolis; 612-455-7200.
Mill City Night Market
Each week this summer, Mill City Night Market takes over the grassy area in front of U.S. Bank Stadium. This Tuesday, the event will also be a happy hour, as Day Block Brewing will be serving up pizza, beer, and wine to picnickers on the green. A free yoga session starts up around 5:30 p.m., and lawn games like kubb, cornhole, and ping pong will be played. Shop for veggies and artisan eats from local farmers, and enjoy live music. This is also a family-friendly happening, with plenty of healthy foods and activities geared toward kids. 4 to 8 p.m. Tuesday. Free. The Commons, 425 Portland Ave. S., Minneapolis. --Jessica Armbruster
This evening of bingo is better than heading to a church basement because beer is within reach. This week, B. Louise hosts while you drink a pint and try to win some glam prizes. Tuesday, 8-9:30 p.m. Sisyphus Brewing, 712 Ontario Ave. W., Minneapolis; 612-444-8674.
Tuesday, July 31, 8:55 p.m. @ Father Hennepin Bluff Park.
