Students looking for events to occupy their time this week alongside the much anticipated Cy-Hawk football game can check out various affordable activities being hosted at Iowa State and within the Ames community.

Thursday

Student Union Board will host their Comedy Night with guest Michael Rowland in The Maintenance Shop on Thursday evening. Rowland is best known for his performance as Shred on the FOX comedy “Animal Control” and his appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.” The event starts at 8 p.m., and doors open at 7:30 p.m. The event is free of charge.

Cyclone Cinema will show “Asteroid City” this week in Carver 101. The movie will be shown through Sunday and starts at 7 p.m. every night. Admission is free, with snacks and drinks priced at $1 and $2.

Dog-Eared Books will be hosting its monthly trivia night. Attendees will be quizzed on general trivia so the topics will vary. It costs $25 to register a team, and teams can consist of up to six people.

Friday

Britches and Hose will perform at Wheatsfield Co-op’s Summer Tiny Deck Concert series. Hailing from central Iowa, the group is a six-piece all-ukelele musical group that plays everything from folk music to arena rock. The event is free, and attendees are encouraged to bring their own blankets and lawn chairs.

Saturday

The Ames Farmers’ Market will be held on Main Street from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Visitors can buy from local farmers, craftspeople and vendors while enjoying food from Ames restaurants and listening to free music.

Of course, a Saturday event preview would not be complete without mentioning the upcoming Cy-Hawk game. If you were one of the students lucky enough to score a ticket, kickoff will be in Jack Trice at 2:30.

Week-long

The Workspace will be hosting two drop-in-crafts all week. Students can make a boho tassel wall hanging from colorful cords and driftwood or create air plant terrariums. Additionally, students will be able to paint their own sun and moon-themed pottery all week. All crafts are available as take-home kits for an extra charge. The Workspace is open from 2-9 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
