Pony Up: If you’ve never been to the Santa
Barbara Polo & Racquet Club, this Friday’s family-friendly
Cinema Night provides a great excuse to check it out. Enjoy the
evening’s entertainment—which includes a screening of
Guatan, a Spanish documentary, but with English subtitles,
about how a polo pony is trained, as well as the feature film
The Legend of Zorro—while eating dinner on the polo field
under the stars. Bring a blanket or chairs, and something to keep
you warm once the marine layer rolls in. Movie food, candy, and
soft drinks are included in the price of admission, and the SBPRC
clubhouse will have a complete bar open for the grown-ups. Call
684-6683 for info.
A Pirate’s Life for Me: If Captain Jack
Sparrow’s antics have your kids pining for all things pirate, the
Maritime Museum has the perfect activity planned for this Saturday,
August 19 from 1-3 p.m. As part of its Saturday for Kids program,
the museum will present Swashbuckling Tales of Adventure
this Saturday. Guest storytellers will regale visitors with
dramatic portrayals of exploration, discovery, and piracy, and the
craft activity that follows will leave any young, landlubbing
buccaneer ready to hit the high seas in search of buried treasure.
