  • Where/When: 12 p.m. - 7 p.m. daily at in Sammamish.
  • Why Go: This Saturday is shaping up to be a hot one. So what better way to cool off then by taking a dip at Pine Lake Park. The swimming area now has lifeguards on duty from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. everyday. Or, if you're closer to Redmond, you can try but you won't have lifegaurds on duty.

  • Cost: Admission is free, wine available for purchase by the glass.

  • Where/When: 7 p.m. to 12 a.m. Every Friday night at . 
  • Why Go: Do you and your friends or family love game night? Maybe you've grown tired of that same old Monopoly game and need something new. Or, maybe you just need a bigger space to play. Uncle's Games in Redmond has you covered either way. Every Friday night, the store stays open extra late, so groups of friends and family can partake in "Friday Night Gaming" at the store. Bring your own games, or pick from one of the many demonstration games the store carries.

  • Where/When: 4 p.m. - 5 :30 p.m. Friday, July 1 at Deseret Book in Bellevue.
