1. Today's environmentally themed Proctor Farmers Market promotes local, sustainable practices and family-friendly fun. Attendees can learn more about green living, eat locally made food, browse booths, attend workshops and watch demonstrations, check out an electric conversion car and listen to live music from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Should you arrive at the Market by bike or carrying a reusable cup or shopping bag, don't be surprised if you get your picture snapped for the "Green Wall of Fame." 

2. "Warbirds." Star Trek aside, the term is not a creation of Gene Roddenberry and company, but a real-world designation for any aircraft that has served in a military capacity. And warbirds - from World War II bombers to Vietnam-era helicopters to A-10s - are the aircraft that will be on display and in the air beginning at 9 a.m. around the Olympia Regional Airport during the Olympic Air Show.

3. The film Madagascar is the story of four animal friends at the Central Park Zoo - Alex the Lion (voiced by Ben Stiller), Marty the Zebra (Chris Rock), Melman the Giraffe (David Schwimmer), and Gloria the Hippo (Jada Pinkett-Smith) - who, through a series of mishaps, end up marooned on the relatively rustic island nation of Madagascar. There, the pampered and homesick New Yorkers must eke out an existence in the wild without the help of beneficent zookeepers or adoring fans. This glorious film will be screened for free at 10 a.m. at The Grand Cinema.

4. Where there's beer, there's burping, and where there's beer-burping, there's an Old World wine bar (sound of a wine glass shattering on the ground). That's right, Pastiche Wine Bar is getting their microbrews on for Father's Day weekend with a free beer tasting from 11 a.m. to 11:30 p.m., as well as a full meal of burger, potato salad, baked beans and a microbrew for $11.99. Tonight, expect live music, bar games and, yes, burping.

5. The upstairs of Frankie's Sports Bar and Grill is not technically a bar. It's a private membership club. A club that's actually not much different than your local dive watering hole. You know, the ability to smoke cigarettes inside, hot bikini-clad bartenders waiting on your every need and nightly drink specials ranging from liquid marijuana shots to cheap draft beer. But wait. Your local dive bar doesn't have bikini-clad bartenders serving liquid marijuana shots? Oh, too bad for you.
