It's your last week to check out MoPOP's Marvel: Universe of Superheroes exhibit, where you can see props from the comics and film empire, like this Black Panther costume worn by Chadwick Boseman.

Our arts critics have already recommended 59 great things to do this week and our music critics have picked the 39 best music shows, but there are still lots more events happening. To prevent some of the quirkier and more extraordinary ones from slipping through the cracks, we've compiled them here—from the premiere of Laser Bowie to Cat Video Fest 2019, and from the iconic touring reading series Sister Spit to the Allstate Hot Chocolate 15k/5k. For even more options this week, check out our complete Things To Do calendar.
