I know the general theme for these posts is GO OUTSIDE. But this time I really mean it. We’ll hit triple digits again next week, so enjoy tolerable temps while you can.
In between trips to the park, pick-up games of basketball, and high-fiving the earth, check out these local gems of activity.
Today: If you missed Daryl Johnston popping his chiseled jaw into the ESD trial this week, have no fear. You can still get your legendary Dallas Cowboy sighting on. Emmitt Smith signs Game On! Find Your Purpose—Pursue Your Dream 7 p.m. at Barnes and Noble Lincoln Park.
Saturday: I’ve always found it’s easier to go for a run when you know there’s a tasty treat waiting for you at the finish line. Apparently, I’m not alone in my logic. Join the folks at Cooper Fitness Center (12100 Preston Road) for the third annual Run Proud For Dessert 5K. Cost is $35 on race day. Registration opens at 7 a.m. and the races (kids and adult) begin at 8. All finishers get a cupcake!
The summer blockbusters are over, and the mainstream movie options are a bit lacking these days. So why not head over to the Aaron Family JCC for the 15th Annual Jewish Film Festival. The footage starts at 9 p.m.
Sunday: Calling all Arrested Development fanatics. I say fanatics because for a show that only ran for three seasons five years ago, it has managed to draw a pretty large following. And I happily include myself in that bandwagon crowd. Actor Tony Hale, who played Buster, will discuss “Can Hollywood and Integrity Coexist?” at 7:30 p.m. at the Lakewood Theater. That’s outside the Hollow, but he’s being hosted by the Covenant School.
