Capture the Flag
Washburn Fair Oaks Park
Who says summertime games like Capture the Flag are just for kids? For the past couple years, the Grown-Up Club has been hosting fun nights for adults who want to spend an evening playing like a kid. Instead of firing up your Nintendo Wii, head out to the grassy lawn at Washburn Fair Oaks Park, where you’ll meet and form teams with players who also want to take a break from adulting. You may have a beer gut and a little bit of a wheeze from all those cigarettes (gotta get started on quitting, right?), but we’re all a little older and slower these days anyway. During the games, new friendships will be forged, rivalries will become legendary, and beers will be used to salute afterward at a nearby pub (you can’t be a kid forever, after all). 6 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday. Free. 200 24th St. E., Minneapolis.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
Farview Park
Wednesday, 9 p.m. 

Pop-up Beer Garden
The Bachelor Farmer
Northwest Minneapolis brewery Utepils will be heading to the North Loop this Thursday for an outdoor party at Bachelor Farmer. Try a variety of Euro-inspired brews, such as the sunny Pils and the copper-hued ALT 1848. The new company gets its name from a Norwegian tradition of enjoying a pint on a sunny day. Kinda perfect for this season, right? House-made soft pretzels will also be for sale, and pups are invited, too. Thursday, June 22, from 5 to 10 p.m. 50 Second Ave. N., Minneapolis; 612-206-3920.
