Make it Mondays at the Children’s Museum. There’s a reason people say something rocks when it’s really cool: because rocks are really cool. Kids have the opportunity to see how cool they are firsthand this week when the Tucson Gem and Mineral Society Inc. comes to the Children’s Museum as part of their community outreach program. As part of the museum’s summer program, there will also be extended hours and $3 admission. And that truly rocks. Gem and Mineral Society will be at the museum from 3 to 6 p.m., and museum will be open until 7 p.m. on Monday, June 18. Tucson Children's Museum, 200 S. Sixth Ave. Free. Details here.
Island Claws. For Mondo Mondays at The Loft, June is Marine Monster Beach Party themed! This means you get to see giant, frazzled crabs running amok in a Florida beach city. It a classic cheesy monster movie: Nuclear plant spills onto docile animal, animals get big and angry, screams ensue, guy gets girl (probably). What’s not to like? 8 p.m., Monday, June 18. 3233 E. Speedway Boulevard. $3. Details here.
