Remember to VOTE, if you haven't yet. Now then, need some R&R after all that? How about a lu'au! This benefit for the Service Board, an organization that pairs teenagers with adult mentors for community service and job skills training, includes a volleyball tournament, live music, a whole roasted pig, and an open bar. (Golden Gardens Bathhouse, 8498 Seaview Place NW, Volleyball from 4:00 to 6:30 p.m., lu'au and music from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m., $75 for general admission (food & open bar), $60 for a volleyball team (includes four general admission tickets), discounts available for current tSB mentors and students, youth twelve and under get in free.)


DID YOU VOTE? Then why not gloat about what a good person you are—how civic minded, politically savvy, and handsome—at the 34th District Democrats' are hosting their Annual Garden Party & Auction in West Seattle (here's the fancy shmancy flyer for you to scrap book next to your voter's stub). If you can't cough up the $34 to attend, the picnic is still cruising for waitstaff volunteers. Also, Joe Fitzgibbon will be there, if you care. Or maybe you're just playing it cool, waiting for him to call you. Whatever. (West Seattle Nursery, 5275 California Ave SW, doors at 5:30 p.m., $34 to attend, or call (206-856-0182) or email Chris Porter to volunteer.)

After that, keep your weekend swinging in Columbia City, where you can check out the second-to-last Beatwalk of the summer. What's Beatwalk, you ask? It's like artwalk without the eye strain. Jazz, rock, and world music bands are on the lineup, and you can check out the Flickr group from past months here. (Rainier Ave S. between S. Edmunds St and S. Hudston St, 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., $7 gets you into every venue and kids are free.)


FUCKING DO IT ALREADY. Then show off your traditional, stable family on at the annual King County Republicans' Family Picnic. And, even better, there are "fun bouncy toys for the children with Republican friends." Sorry socialist spawn, no fun for you. (Homestead Park, 3870 81st Ave S.E., Mercer Island, 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., $5 for individuals or $10 for families, RSVP requested.)

Okay, okay, I'll throw you socialists out there a bone: it's The Goonies! SPOILER ALERT: They split the treasure in the end. The Fremont Outdoor Movies series is celebrating the seminal film's 25th anniversary with one of their "almost-free" screenings, so you can relive the glory days and maybe even join in some "pre-show madcap fun." (N 35th St & Phinney Ave N, movie starts at 7:00 p.m., $5 suggested donation.)


NO EXCUSES. ATMs SELL STAMPS, SLACKER. Also, is your dog pretty? Does s/he hog all your attention and need to be petted for hours? Is he/she a STAR? Then enter your dog into the CityDog magazine Cover Dog Model Search. It's like America's Next Top Model, but even bitch-ier (har har!). The second of five preliminary rounds is this Sunday, at the West Seattle Thriftway. One winner from each event will go on to compete in the finalists' round. Winner gets a cover shoot! Enter your dog with this pre-registration .pdf, or just come to watch the fun. (West Seattle Thriftway, 4201 SW Morgan St, begins at noon, $10 per dog or free to watch.)
