Things to do in Saskatoon This Weekend

Events for the week of July 12 to 18, 2018

What’s so special about mid-July in Saskatoon? This past week, we’ve endured vicious windstorms, baseball-sized hail, and stifling humidity. BUT none of that is keeping us from carrying on with a summer full of festive fun. So get out there this weekend! Show the world that a little wind, rain, and falling ice won’t stop you from experiencing all there is to do for fun in our little patch of the prairies.

Events are compiled using the Do Sask Facebook Group community calendar. Group members are invited to share events and engage with each other about things to do in the city of Saskatoon. Think of it as an interactive community cork board.

Do Sask Book Club just got better thanks to McNally Robinson Booksellers

Now that it’s July, we’re officially more than halfway through 2018. It’s about time to shed some light on the Do Sask Book Club that began casually back in January and how it’s about to get better thanks to McNally Robinson Booksellers.

You probably noticed while perusing Do Sask over the past 18 months that organizing group experiences is my thing. From brewery tours to speed dating, craft workshops to road trips – creating new activities close to home is part of what gives my life meaning. 

WHY RUN A FREE BOOK CLUB?

The Do Sask Book Club began as an in-person meetup for closed Facebook group members. I only knew one other member in person before the book club met up in January this year.

Finding a group of friends who are willing to commit to monthly gatherings isn’t easy. Take my Sunday-night all-women D&D experiment group. We found out that having a 3-hour-plus game late into the evening on a work night wasn’t going to fly long-term. (Yes, I play D&D. Did I mention I’m a dork?)

However if a bunch of friends commit as a group to finishing something they start, they can definitely do some big things in the world. That’s what community means to me. And that’s why I started the Book Club.

Over the past 6 months, we’ve read five different titles and held meetings at a number of local venues. Books include Sleeping Beauties by Stephen and Owen King,  1984 by George Orwell, Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari, and Artemis by Andy Weir. There was a clear theme that ran through these discussions, but it wasn’t planned as books are chosen by random draw.

HOW THE DO SASK BOOK CLUB WORKS

  • Book Draw Everyone in attendance puts their #1 title into a draw.
  • Eclectic Topics Each title will eventually be picked, so you’re guaranteed to have your book chosen along with a variety of other options – some you may hate and others may surprise you.
  • Flexible Meetings Dates are chosen on a day that works for the majority of attendees, usually a Monday or Tuesday evening.
  • Drinks & Discussion Book club members get together for a casual conversation over lattes and cocktails.
  • Book Club is always FREE Please bring cash if you’d like to order a drink and snacks to support the host venue.

If your schedule is anything like mine, you may not have time to include leisure reading every month. That’s why we don’t enforce the rule of finishing the book (although it makes a difference for the discussion). So you never have to feel pressure and can show up if you want to take part, or just listen.

What I’ve loved most about the Do Sask Book Club is learning how different people pick up unique aspects of each book. No one thinks alike and everyone offers a new perspective, or pieces of the story that I may have missed.

DO SASK BOOK CLUB & MCNALLY ROBINSON BOOKSELLERS

Meet us at Prairie Ink Restaurant inside McNally Robinson Booksellers starting later this summer. Along with providing space for discussions, McNally is offering Do Sask Book Club members their Reader Reward card for $10 which gives you 10% off your purchases. There will be a draw for a gift card at every meeting, if you needed some added incentive.

In the future, the curators at McNally Robinson Booksellers are willing to line up authors to potentially speak and offer book suggestions when applicable.

COME TO THE NEXT BOOK CLUB MEETING

At the July Do Sask Book Club, we’ll discuss “The Merry Wives of Windsor” before watching the play at Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan. Check out the event listing for details. 

The year is young! Fill it with new friends, a few drinks, and some literature at the Do Sask Book Club. Please contact me if you’d like more information about upcoming meetings.

Parking: There is a pay lot and street parking is free after 6 pm.

Speakers: Local style gurus Maygen Kardash, Sarah Gaudry, and K-Lyn Bonogofski

MAYGEN KARDASH

“For more than a decade, Maygen Kardash has been a wardrobe stylist for television, music videos, print, and both artist and personal consults. She is also a musician, frequent lifestyle guest on Global Morning, featured contributor to Refined Lifestyles Magazine, freelance writer, Brownie leader, and most important, loving mama to 3-year-old daughter Petra and baby boy Paris.

K-LYN BONOGOFSKI

“K-Lyn has been heavily involved in the fashion community, since moving to Saskatoon from a small city in Alberta. K-Lyn held the position of marketing co-ordinator for the Saskatoon Fashion and Design Festival, as well as styled and organized the Living Green Expo Fashion Show in coordination with Stasia Boutique. Her consulting business focuses on personal shopping, and closet organization for those who want a fashion lift. K-Lyn has a passion for consignment shopping and believes that you do not need to break your wallet in order to be fashionable.”

Follow: https://www.instagram.com/k.bonogofski/

Although the spirit of donating clothing to people in need is always appreciated, about 85% of our clothing eventually ends up in a landfill. For this reason swapping instead of buying brand new clothes is an exciting way to reduce, reuse, and recycle.

To start the night off, get fashion hack advice by local stylists to show you how to reuse your clothes in multiple seasons.

HOW IT WORKS

1. Come with 5 – 12 items of clothing, or accessories to add to the swap collection pool.

2. After the welcome and brief styling workshop, swap shopping will officially begin. Pick any garments and accessories up to the amount you added to the swap collection pool.

3. At the end of the swap, you can choose to take home remaining items that have not been taken, or you can leave them to be donated to the YWCA Opportunity Shop.

GUIDELINES

What to bring: dresses, pants, skirts, tops, shoes, bags, scarves, hats, jewellery, and a few friends. This swap has no size restrictions.

What NOT to bring: earrings, swimwear, underwear, night wear, and children’s clothes.

Clothes must be clean and in good condition. If you wouldn’t pass it on to your best friend, please leave it at home. Try-ons cannot be accommodated (unless you have a portable changing room that you can let us borrow)!
