From a scientific exploration of Bainbridge Island’s resident owls, to a film about ‘Old Goats’ by an Island native… from icy white dwarfs in the sky to icy drafts on tap… with everything to see and do here, we think you’ll want to spend a few nights on beautiful Bainbridge Island!

Open Mic Science Bainbridge Island OwlsOpen Mic Science: Bainbridge Island’s Owls
8:00 pm @ Treehouse Café (4569 Lynwood Center Road NE)
Jamie Acker, physics and engineering teacher at Olympic High School and retired submarine officer, has been studying Bainbridge Island’s owl populations since 1995 and is the author of two published works. Most of his observations center around Barred Owls and their apparent effects on other owl species, particularly the Western Screech-owl, which has been extirpated from the Island. Since the fall of 2005, he has also run a banding station for Northern Saw-whet Owls, a small migratory owl whose population dynamics, particularly on the west coast, are not very well understood. Admission: Inquire

Old Goats Film at Bainbridge Island Museum of ArtsmART films: ‘Old Goats’
7:00 – 10:00 pm @ Bainbridge Island Museum of Art (550 Winslow Way East)
Old Goats is the hilarious and heartfelt story of three older men who refuse to go quietly into the night of retirement and old age. Cantankerous and set in their ways, each man must come to terms with the sunset years in his own unique fashion. Shot in and around Seattle, Old Goats finds humor in the everyday foibles of retirement life, providing a refreshing perspective on the golden years through the eyes of three men who don’t feel (or act) anywhere close to as old as they look. BIMA smARTfilms series fosters community conversation through the merger of visual art, film, and narrative. After the screening, our host and guest(s) will initiate a discussion about the film and its art. Admission: $10 adults; $6 students

An Unexpected Grace by Kristin von KreislerBook Reading: ‘An Unexpected Grace’ with Kristin von Kreisler
3:00 – 4:00 pm @ Eagle Harbor Book Co. (157 Winslow Way East)
Bainbridge Island author Kristin von Kreisler reads from her first novel, An Unexpected Grace. Lila Elliot knows she’s lucky. A shooting rampage at her office left several colleagues dead and others seriously wounded.  Lila’s injuries will heal in time, but she can’t quite move past her fear and anger. Being drafted into caring for Grace – a shaggy, formerly abused golden retriever – only adds to her stress.  Lila has been terrified of dogs since childhood.  But Grace, like Lila, needs time and space to heal. Rich in warmth and humor, An Unexpected Grace is a story of compassion and connection, and of finding that what truly makes us whole again may be the love we give away. Admission: Free
