Three free things to do this week


This week in free stuff to do we have a patio party, a movie screening, and a recess game for grown-ups . Come take a look and plan your week.

Summer Music & Movies: Danger Diabolik

(Loring Park, 1382 Willow St., Minneapolis)

The Monday night movie series in Loring Park continues this week with a screening of Danger Diabolik. The story follows jewel thieves on a high-stakes adventure filled with mod and glam fashions, stylized sequences, and TechniColor beauty. Chastity Brown will play a set as the sun goes down. Monday, 7 p.m. 

Recess Games V: Capture the Flag

(Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, 725 Vineland Pl., Minneapolis)


Just because you're a grown-ass adult doesn't mean you can't still play children's games. This week the Grown-Up Club invites adults to play a game of the gym-time classic Capture the Flag out on the Sculpture Garden lawn. Bring your own team or make new friends. There will be battle cries, frantic running, and strategizing. This week, the dismantling of the Sculpture Garden  in preparation for redesigns begins, so this may be your last chance to play on the art for some time. Oh, and unlike grade school, there will be a trip to a bar for ice-cold beer afterward. Take that, Capri Sun. For more info, click here. 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Pop Remix

(Walker Art Center, 1750 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis)

Summer is a great time for a patio party. This Thursday, the Walker will be hosting a variety of fun happenings on its terraces and patios inspired by its "International Pop" exhibition. Dosh & Ghostband will play bass-heavy tunes while De Stijl Records founder Clint Simonsonwill spin global pop tunes. Selling Democracy, a film that examines post World War II U.S. movie propaganda via the Marshall Plan. The drink of the night is dubbed Blue-Blau-Azul, a tropical-looking concoction consisting of Prairie-brand vodka and gin, blue curacao, lemon peel, and Pop Rocks. Arrive at 5 p.m. if you're interested in sampling some sweet treats, as John Kraus of Patisserie 46 will be on hand as part of the Chef-in-Residence series. Thursday, 6 to 10 p.m.
