Whether you're looking for art, fashion, literature, poolside partying, or William Shatner, here are your best bets for being out and about this weekend.

5. Phoenix Comicon @ Phoenix Convention Center Nerd alert. Comicon's back and this year features a massive lineup of pop culture-infused haps including an appearance by The Shat (among some 200 special guests), and more than 500 panels and discussions, and, of course, plenty of parties to keep the geeks going after hours. Suit up as your character of choice and head over to the Phoenix Convention Center. The con continues through Sunday, and admission starts at $25 per day.
