4 fun things to do this weekend

The groundhog predicted six more weeks of winter (boo, hiss). Looking as far as this weekend, we predict fun (yay). Here are some ideas to get you started:

Breakfast and Bowl: On Saturday, each breakfast entree ordered in West Seattle Bowl’s Highstrike Grill qualifies the customer for two free games. Doors open at 9 a.m. Info here.

5th Avenue Theatre Community Day: Beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday, watch a Chinese Lion Dance, take line-dancing lessons, learn songs from “Oklahoma!” (the 5th Avenue’s new show) and create a cowboy bandana — all for free at the downtown Seattle theater. Info here.

Movies, movies, movies: Four films open with a bang this weekend: The Oscar-nominated “A Separation,” plus “The Woman in Black,” “Big Miracle” and “Coriolanus.” Read the reviews here.

Plays, plays, plays: Seattle Public Theater tackles the Tom Stoppard classic “Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead” and Macha Monkey premieres Kristina Sutherland’s home-from-war story, “Thebes” (reviews here); Strawberry Theatre Workshop stages Theresa Rebeck’s haunting “The Bells.” (Review here.)
