Three free things to do this week
Free things to do this week include an art party, a beer tasting, and rooftop screenings of Bill Murray movies.
Come take a look at our list and plan your week.Rushmore
(Solera, 900 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis)
This month, Solera's rooftop screenings are all about Bill Murray. The Tuesday- and Sunday-night series kicks off September with Rushmore, which marked the beginning of Murray's ongoing collaboration with king of twee Wes Anderson. Later in the month, revelers will be able to take in screenings of Groundhog Day, Ghostbusters, Lost in Translation, Stripes, Caddyshack, and other awesome hits. During the movie, PBRs will set you back $3, and there are other drink specials each evening as well. Tuesday at dusk.
Free Thursdays at the Walker
(Walker Art Center, 1750 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis; 612-375-7600)
This week's free party at the Walker showcases two things many people love: cats and beer. That's right. Meet out on the Open Field lawn at 6 p.m. for cat poetry from feline fans. During festivities, cat lovers will be able to watch vids from this year's Internet Cat Video Fest in the cinema room (however, tickets for the screening are $8). Meanwhile, the Walker's Brewer-in-Resident series continues this month with Fulton Brewery. Meet with brewmaster Mike Salo, who will be talking about his love of beer from an early age, and sample three varieties for free: Sweet Child of Vine, Lonely Blonde, and War & Peace. Taste something you like? Beer and beer flights will be available for purchase. 5 to 9 p.m. for the beer tasting, 6 to 9 p.m. for art and cat shenanigans. Thursday.
(TuckUnder Projects, 5120 York Ave. S., Minneapolis)
The latest show hosted in a private residence will highlight work by four artists: Mike Cloud, Caroline Kent, Nyeema Morgan, and Nate Young. Each will be working with words in their pieces, be it in English or other languages. Fun will also be found in the Leaky Sink Gallery with art by John Vital, and Laura Bigger will have sweet treats from her residency at the outdoor Raspberry Patch. 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday.
