Looking for ways to fill up your weekend? Here are your five best bets for getting out and about in the Valley of the Sun.
Zombies vs. Strippers First Friday Movie Bash @ FilmBar Set in the seedy confines of The Tough Titty, Zombies vs. Strippers is exactly what it sounds like. When an undead outbreak brings brain-munchers into town, strippers Vanilla, Bambi, and Sugar Hills have to step up their game and try to shake the ghouls.
The film screens at 8 p.m. and midnight at FilmBar on Friday. Admission is $12.
Fifth Anniversary Party @ Bunky Boutique Rachel and Jim Malloy will celebrate five years of Bunky Boutique fashion on Friday. Located in the Merz Building, the shop has been a go-to for downtowners looking for unique, stylish pieces and locally made items at all three of its locations.
The birthday fun starts at 7 p.m. on Friday, when champagne and cake will be served. A limited edition Bunky lip gloss will be released (those who snap one up will also get a free makeup touch-up), discounts will be available, and shoppers will receive a gift with purchase. Admission is free.
"Oh, The Faces I Know" @ Bokeh Gallery Through her series of Prismacolor pencil portraits for "Oh, The Faces I Know," artist Jamie Pettis explores who she has been, is, and hopes to become by taking inventory of different roles she's played in her life. The Oklahoma native has drawn inspiration from her artist father, her time studying fashion, and ceaselessly creative, colorful designer Marc Jacobs, for whose label Pettis interned.
"They all relate to one another in that they are all portraits of various faces [of] people I have seen within myself during my life," Pettis says. "Some of these faces are part of my truth, and others are faces I tried out for awhile, but they did not work."
See her introspective show at Bokeh Gallery on Friday at 7 p.m. Admission is free.
Live From The Tower Of Sorrows, It's The Cult Of The Yellow Sign! @ Space 55 Everyone's favorite doomsday cult, The Cult of The Yellow Sign, will host a talk show at Space 55 Theatre on Saturday at 10:30 p.m. Well, sort of. Two of the cultists will open a portal to the cult's prison/business school, the Tower of Sorrows, where guests will be interviewed and appear in a talk show format that will reportedly include sick rhymes, magic, poetry, and a dash of academia. Attendees may pass through said portal for a mere $10.
Garden Day Three @ Roosevelt Growhouse Start off Sunday morning by getting a little dirty and digging your hands into the community garden at the Growhouse from 8 to 10 a.m. Volunteers should bring water and sunscreen.
