Best Bets for July 12-14 | The Bainbridge Blab

Well, the dust has settled at last. But though we find ourselves in the wake of the year’s biggest party there is still fun to be found rock the Round.

First off, this weekend, it’s all about Billy.

Billy Shakespeare, that is.

Bainbridge Performing Arts’ seventh annual Summertime Shakespeare performance, “As You Like It,” will again be staged outside, on the picturesque grounds of Bloedel Reserve (7571 NE Dolphin Drive) on July 12-14, July 18-21, July 24-26 and July 28.

All performances are at 7 p.m. Visit www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org for ticket pricing and more information.

The production offers a dramatic summer evening appropriate for all ages.

Patrons are advised to bring low lawn chairs; there is limited blanket seating available. Staff members will assist patrons upon their arrival in the meadow. Seating on blankets will be in front; seating in elevated chairs will be in the back.

Also, the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art is highlighting creative creations of a musical nature this weekend with the first-ever Mojo Rhythm & Blues Festival, a four-day extravaganza of live music, film, lectures and more events, both free and ticketed, which takes place in the BIMA auditorium and several galleries through Sunday, July 14.

Finally, Island Center Hall will host a sock hop and ice cream social at 7 p.m. Saturday, July 13.

The dance will feature a versatile DJ mix of oldies and goldies. The dance is for singles and couples, adults and teens. Admission is $10 at the door.

There will be prizes for best costume as well as a dance contest. Dancers are asked to bring ice cream, condiments and non-alcohol beverages to share.

The night kicks off with a swing workshop mixer from 7:15 to 8 p.m. (free with paid admission to the dance.)

Island Center Hall is at 8395 Fletcher Bay Road.
