Dinner and a movie, glorious gardens, a new rap handle for cool you, and trivia with real swag.|

Roll ‘Em

Most of Sonoma International Film Festival’s content is virtual this year, but they’ve managed to schedule a couple of in-person events, too. On Friday, patrons can watch “Spacewalker” at the drive-in at Sonoma Skypark, and on Saturday, “The Comeback Trail” will make its local debut. Food trucks will be cooking up good eats for both shows, and patrons can enjoy a socially-distanced mingle before the films roll. It’s old-fashioned fun from the before times, and a distracting bit of entertainment to get through the right nows.

Friday and Saturday, March 26 and 27, 6:15 to 10 p.m., SIFF at Sonoma Skypark, 21870 Eighth St., $65 to 75.

Nature, Tamed

Spring has sprung; the grass is rizz. If you’re wondering where the flowers is, look no further than Cornerstone Gardens. Spring flowers are blooming with abandon everywhere there now, and knowledgeable docents are eager to guide you through the ever-changing landscape. From the formal vignettes to Sunset’s incredible food gardens, there’s a lot of leafy inspiration to be had. Make a day of it with a picnic lunch, or sit down for something delicious at Folktable. You’ll be inspired, uplifted, motivated and renewed, all right on time for spring.

Fridays, 1 p.m., Sunset Garden Tours at Cornerstone Gardens, cornerstonesonoma.com, 23570 Arnold Drive, $15.

Wu You

If you resolved to be cooler in 2021, you might want to kick things off with a new handle. Something edgier than “Gladys,” something more cutting edge. Actor Donald Glover — admittedly way cooler than most of us to start with — was famously assigned “Childish Gambino” by the Wutang Clan Name Generator, and now has four albums and twelve music videos in his hip hop tote. So if you aspire to drop rhymes, want to describe things as “dope” with impunity, or are simply tired of answering to “Clarence,” log on and let the algorithm re-christen you.

Whenever the internet is open, wutangclan.net, free.

Organic Knowledge

If you know your brown bears from your bobcats and your alders from your oaks, you may have what it takes to triumph at Sonoma Ecology Center’s online Trivia Night. Questions will key on native flora and fauna, and the winners will take home some serious swag: lifetime membership to Sugarloaf Ridge State Park plus two days of “glamping,” a mixed case of biodynamic Benziger wine, or a $50 gift certificate for Refill Madness, the local go-to for eco-friendly essentials. All you need is an internet connection and a tablet or smartphone, plus a little knowledge on the place you call home.

Tuesday, March 30, 6 to 7 p.m., “Trivia Night” with Sonoma Ecology Center via Crowdpurr, sonomaecologycenter.org, free.
