Provided that you're not spending the weekend hunting down what's left of the Marni for H&M collection or all booked up with other killer plans, here are five things to add to your agenda this weekend.
5. Simpsonize Yourself @ Gotham City Comics & Coffee
Once a celebrity has appeared on The Simpsons, his status as a pop culture icon is cemented. Tonight five-time Emmy-winning Simpsons animator Phil Ortiz teams up with local artist BIGCHRISART, who has three finalist entries in the Phoenix Comicon badge art contest, to lower that bar ever-so-slightly and morph downtown Mesa's Second Friday frolickers into Springfield residents.

3. Pre-Spring Break Bash @ Vista Del Sol
Although ASU's spring break doesn't start officially until March 12, Vista del Sol is kicking off the week of partying Saturday with a poolside bash featuring DJ William Reed, Jason Devore, and The Veragroove, plus free spray tans, and a chance to win a Vegas trip for the remainder of the vacay.
Get your party (and faux tan) on Saturday from noon to 6 p.m. See more here.
2. Sonoran Desert Seedbomb Workshop @ Mitchell Park
Desert ArtLAB embarks on a community project in which participants will change a ho-hum alley into a garden and learn a thing or two about seedbombing.
1. Kinky Leprechaun Bingo @ Rainbow Cactus Saloon
Where to begin? First, we'll admit we've never associated leprechauns with sexiness -- although a quick Google search illuminated a world we've missed out on.
Second, a game of bingo that includes clover shots and leprechaun nipples (also shots -- get your mind out of that tiny, Irish gutter) sounds like we could end up getting lucky in more ways than one.
