Get Out Weekend Planner

Check our picks for the activities to hit and new places to explore.

It’s Friday, and you’ve got no idea what you’ll do for the weekend.

Redmond Patch is coming to the rescue. We’ve got the best bets for your done-with-work-get-me-outta-here time. Check our picks for the activities to hit and new establishments to explore.

Where/When: 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., every Friday at Malt & Vine in Redmond.

Why Go: This week's featured beer is from New Belgium Brewery. Meet the beer maker and receive a free beer glass with purchase of any six pack from New Belgium.

Pricing: $1 covers the tasting.

Where/When: 7 p.m. Friday at the Sammamish Family YMCA gym.

Why Go: What better way to kick off your weekend then with a little swing dancing? You even get a free lesson before the dance.

Pricing: Admission is $5 (no charge for YMCA members).

Where/When: Friday and Saturday at the Tacoma Dome.

Why Go: Come root on Redmond-area wrestlers as they compete at state.

Pricing: Day passes available for $11-$15; two-day passes available for $23.

Where/When: 8 to 10 p.m. Friday at in Redmond.

Why Go: Sit back, relax and let the great Jim Page take care of the rest. His sound is almost James Taylor-esque. Here's a sneak peak (song starts around the 3:30 mark).

Pricing: Free.

Where/When: 6 to 7 p.m. Friday at Bill the Butcher in Redmond.

Why Go: Come learn how Butcher and Chef Scott W. Molyneaux cut a whole lamb into all the cuts possible, including demonstration of techniques to use raw local ingredients to prepare braised lamb shanks, rolled lamb breast, and more.
