Take a guided walk or two on Capitol Hill and in the Central District on Sunday as part of the annual Jane’s Walk day organized by Feet First. “Jane’s Walk is a movement of free, locally led walking tours. The walks get people to explore their cities, connect with neighbors, and learn new information about their communities.”
You can meet the trees during the Volunteer Park Tree Walk (10am -12pm ), tour central Seattle‘s hidden gardens (2 -3:30pm) or Explore the Central District (3 – 5pm)

You’ve heard of TED talks. Now, there’s JAKE talks. “Inspired by TED Talks, JAKE aims to create a platform for diverse voices in the LGBT community and to spotlight the voices of a wide variety of speakers and thought-leaders. JAKE’s mission is to empower and celebrate our community through dialogue & culture.” JAKE takes place on Saturday at Gay City Health 10am – 3pm and features speakers sharing inspiring talks from a variety of topics of interest to gay men.

Navajo Star Wars screens at Northwest Film Forum on Friday (11pm) and Saturday (8pm and 11pm).

Get free scoops for kids as Molly Moon’s ice cream window opens for business at 19th Ave E’s Hello Robin cookie shop.

Wear a fancy hat and drink mint juleps at Bottleneck Lounge’s 7th Annual Kentucky Derby Party on Sunday.
