Arbor Annie’s Weekday Picks June 10-14

It’s the last week of school for AAPS and many other students. But, several summer event series are happening this week. So, we are starting the weekday picks this week.

Arbor Annie's Weekday Picks - June 10-14While most local schools run through June 14, we have switched to our summer newsletter/weekend roundup schedule.

Over the summer, the weekly email (a version of this article) will be sent twice:

  • Weekend roundup on Thursday night
  • Weekday roundup Sunday evening or Monday morning.

The content is added to the website 12 hours later.

We also offer an automated daily newsletter that is sent at 8a daily when there are new articles on the site and includes events for the day. There are two subscription options for this newsletter:

  • The School Break option is only sent in summer and extended school breaks
  • Daily is sent year round.

Note we are starting the school break this week even though there is one week of school left.

Subscribe or Update your newsletter preferences here.

In other movie news, State Street District will have an outdoor screening of Jurassic Park on Maynard Street on Thursday.

Strawberry season should kick off this week. With the cool wet spring, the start of the season has been delayed.

It is also peak time to visit the Peony Garden at The Arb. I heard they are at 80% blooming. I am planning a daytime visit while my daughter is in school. The garden is bad for her allergies.

Ann Arbor Restaurant Week kicked off yesterday (Sunday) and runs through Friday. We will have to pick a restaurant to visit.

Top of the Park starts on Friday night. Be sure to check out our Top of the Park Kids Guide for the daily schedule, tips for attending, and more.

With a half-day on Friday for the last day of school (for AAPS), there are several great choices that afternoon. Celebrate at the Zingerman’s Sundae Social. Saline is offering their Mini Mastodon challenge. Or, head to Canton Liberty Fest for ride fun. Finish off the night at the Mayor’s Green Fair and Top of the Park.

    Men in Black International opens on Thursday evening. We were already discussing what movie to see next weekend. I was voting for Men In Black International or Aladdin. But, my daughter voted for Dark Phoenix. We didn’t get to see it las weekend because my daughter was camping with Girl Scouts.

    Secret Life of Pets 2 is a great choice for kids who loved the first movie. And if you need to catch up on the first movie, it is the Emagine summer movie this week.

    If you haven’t seen Avengers Endgame, it now includes a post-credit scene that is basically a trailer for Spider-Man Far From Home.

    Avengers Endgame - Team walks through compound

    Over Memorial Day weekend we saw Pokemon Detective Pikachu. Pikachu (voiced by Ryan Reynolds) reminds me of a G-rated Deadpool.

    Upcoming Family Friendly movies are (updated from earlier this month since Disney/Fox/Marvel changed some dates after their merger):

    • June 14 – Men in Black International
    • June 21 – Toy Story 4
    • July 2 – Spider-Man Far From Home
    • July 19 – The Lion King
