Our arts critics have already recommended 34 great things to do this week and our music critics have picked the 30 best concerts, but there are still hundreds more events happening. To prevent some of the quirkier and more extraordinary ones from slipping through the cracks, we've compiled them here—from events for Pokémon Go players (like the Seattle Immersive Theatre's Pokémon Go Safari and 107.7 The End Pokémon Hunt) to events for dog-lovers (like Norm's Doggie Pageant and the fifth annual Walk for Old Dogs) to events for your inner child (like Shrinky Dink making and the New Belgium Adult Coloring Book Party). For even more options this week, check out our complete Things To Do calendar.

15. Pundamonium: The Seattle Pun Slam!
Puns are the highest and lowest form of humor: They somehow refresh the materiality of language, reminding you that a word is a figure, a thing that can be looked at from several different angles. So whoever wins the pun competition Pundamonium, hosted by Erika Ellefson, will likely be one of Seattle’s great crafters of language, both in a Renaissance fair kind of way but also in a literary genius kind of way. The contestants will be chosen from the audience on a first-come, first-served basis, so the title could go to anyone. RICH SMITH
