Top 5 Things to Do This Weekend

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.

The cartoon makeovers begin at 6 p.m. at Gotham City. See more here.
