Sunday, Aug 2@ 5 p.m. St. Paul JCC. 1375 St. Paul Ave.

The St. Paul JCC will be celebrating its fourth annual Summer Soiree event. The theme, this year, is casino night. The fun-filled festivities will include disco music, cocktails (and mocktails), gambling (no bookies necessary!) and a raffle with some awesome prizes, some of which include:

  • $250 Continental Diamond Gift Card
  • $250 R.F. Moeller Gift Card
  • Dinner for 2 at the Minneapolis Club ($200 Value)
  • Trip to Colorado
  • Trip to Mexico

Call me old-fashioned, but this just seems like deviltry and witchcraft to me! Kidding! Tee-hee! Have a blast!

Maybe, Baby

Is it Safe? Is it Affordable? Is it Accessible? A Conversation about Reproductive Justice with Pro-Choice Resources

Monday, August 3 @ 7 p.m. Jennifer Herman Spiller’s home (RSVP at [email protected] or 952-922-7900 for address and directions)

Join co-hosts Carolyn Abramson, Dana Shapiro and Ruth Usem for a conversation with Arie Kroeger from Pro-Choice Resources “about protecting and promoting human rights by ensuring that health care, reproductive options, and the ability to raise a family are all safe, affordable, and accessible.” I’m assuming that Republicans and Fundamentalist Christians need not RSVP, otherwise they’d be selling tickets to this thing and I’d be purchasing ringside seats!

Inside Out! (The Sequel)

Summer Arts Workshop for Adults: SKIN & BONES AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN

Wednesday, August 5 @10 a.m. The Marsh Wellness Center. 15000 Minnetonka Blvd., Minnetonka, MN

Listen up and get down with your body! This event, brought to you by Sabes JCC, will “incorporate storytelling while exploring the layers that compose who we are.” There’s also something involving a “gratitude vessel.” Whaaaat? Didn’t Pixar just have a movie about this?!
