Institute of Fun Preview

Saturday, August 10

I'm not really sure exactly what the Institute of Fun does, and chances are, you don't either. That's what its open house this Saturday is for—to tell you what the organization is about. According to a recent newsletter from chief fun officer Chris Minnick, the “institute” has been on hiatus for four years. But it will return this September to host more “fun, social, and educational events,” according to its website. The organization will offer classes on juggling, tap dancing and joke telling. Sounds, well, fun. Free, 4 p.m. at the MARRS building, 1050 20th Street;
