Best Bets for Aug. 24-26 | The Bainbridge Blab

Get ready for a busy weekend, Bainbridge.

On Friday:

The Ocean People are set to perform at the penultimate summer concert in the ongoing Music on the Green series from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 24.

Attendance is free, and audience members are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner, chairs — and dancing shoes.

Winslow Green is located at 100 Winslow Way West. Find “Winslow Green” on Facebook for the latest updates and show announcements.

The final show of the season, on Friday, Aug. 31, will feature Psycho Sushi.

“Wonder” (2017) is the latest film on tap as part of the ongoing Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Recreation District summer film program Movies in the Park, and will to shown at dusk (seating begins at 8 p.m.) Friday, Aug. 24.

Light concessions will be available.

In the film: A 10-year-old boy with a facial deformity attends school for the first time when he begins the fifth grade. With the support of his parents, he learns how to make friends and adjust to his new environment.

It was based on the 2012 novel of the same name by R. J. Palacio, and stars Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson, Jacob Tremblay, Mandy Patinkin and Daveed Diggs.

On Saturday:

There can be only one.

The Bainbridge Island Farmers Market will host its Tomato Taste Off at noon Saturday, Aug. 25.

Local residents and farmers are urged to bring their finest cherry, heirloom and beefsteak tomatoes to the market for consideration.

A “surprise guest chef” will be on hand to judge the entrees and pick the best one.

Visit www.bainbridgefarmersmarket.com to learn more.

The 2018 market season continues — from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday through Dec. 17 — in Town Square between city hall and Bainbridge Performing Arts.

Greg Brown has little left to conquer in the music world.

He has garnered multiple Grammy nominations, and boasts an astonishingly deep songbook that’s been covered by dozens of artists (including Willie Nelson and Carlos Santana, Iris DeMent, Ani DiFranco, Gillian Welch, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Joan Baez, Victoria Williams, Robert Earl Keen, Shawn Colvin, Richie Havens, and Tim and Mollie O’Brien).

The storied sonic storyteller will return to the Treehouse Café in Lynwood at 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 25 for a special one-night-only 21-and-older show. Tickets ($35-$45 each) are on sale. Visit www.treehousebainbridge.com to purchase.

One of American folk music’s most prolific and profound singer/songwriters of the past three decades, Brown has earned respect from his peers and a far-flung, passionately-devoted fan-base. His burnished, intimate baritone and seemingly effortless gift for swinging, organic melody, combine with a humble, unvarnished poetic grace that can imbue even the most mundane, everyday human endeavors and emotions with quiet dignity, startling insight and gently twisted humor.

The Bainbridge Blab is your one-stop spot to get the 411 on all things 98110. From South Beach to Agate Passage, Battle Point to Rolling Bay, we’ve got the straight skinny on Bainbridge Island: the latest chatter, babble and burble. News, too.
