Coffee tasting, writers festival and more to do this week

New art shows open, movie series continue with new showings



The downtown area of Pullman, Wash., June 3.


Happy finals week for the students who have exams for their first-session summer classes and happy regular week for the students just hanging out or working this summer!

I am sure everyone is dealing with a little bit of stress this week, whether you’re cramming for an exam, working a hard job or even just relaxing at home.

With that, I hope everyone can take a break from what they are doing and just enjoy themselves at some of the events I have found for this week.
