The weekend can already smell ski season.

Thursday
Turning Your Photos into Fine Art
BRAND-NEW PERKS

Turning Your Photos into Fine Art

Your breathtaking photography deserves a suitable forum—preferably on canvas, in a world-renowned gallery. Or, you know, your bedroom. So Perks is turning your $50 into $100 of purchasing power at CanvasPop—a futuristic art studio that turns your humble JPEGs into gallery-worthy art. The Louvre is waiting.

A Woolrich Photo Exhibit. With Scotch.
HAPPY 180TH

A Woolrich Photo Exhibit. With Scotch.

Mr. Sid’s in Newton is throwing a little party tonight to celebrate Woolrich’s 180th birthday. Besides taking in a game of pool and tasting the free scotch, you can check out a photo exhibit of notable figures wearing Woolrich’s signature parkas. Yes, Brendan Fraser is one of them.

Oct 7, 6-8pm, no cost, Mr. Sid, 1211 Centre St, Newton, 617-244-4990

Friday
Having Sex with the Air
AIR TIME

Having Sex with the Air

The venerable Air Sex World Championships roll through Cambridge on Friday, which means it’s your chance to either get your faux-humping on (tip: stretch first) or just watch the show. Competitors have two minutes to mime fornication, which depending on the competitor could be a good or terrible thing.

Attention, Comrades: Russian Karaoke
KREMLIN

Attention, Comrades: Russian Karaoke

Russian karaoke: you likes it. So if you head to the Russian restaurant Vernissage tomorrow, you can soak up some live Russian music (it has far fewer minor chords than you’d think) and join the other Ruskies in the ancient art of vodka shooting. Bring your babushka.

Oct 8, 8pm-2am, $10, Vernissage, 1627 Beacon St, Brookline, 617-566-3340

Partying with Monster Go-Go Dancers
GOTHIKA

Partying with Monster Go-Go Dancers

An all-black dress code. Eyeliner everywhere. Loud industrial dance music. Sexy go-go girls dancing while dressed as monsters. No, it’s not a troubled 15-year-old’s birthday party. It’s the Monster-a-Go-Go bash happening at TT the Bear’s tomorrow. Call it “pre-Halloween-ing.”

Oct 8, 9pm-2am, $10, TT the Bear’s, 10 Brookline St, Cambridge, 617-492-0082

Saturday
Wife-Carrying in Maine
TILL DEATH

Wife-Carrying in Maine

It’s basically the weirdest race you’ll ever watch. As grown men cart their better halves over wild, muddy terrain for the chance to reach the finals in Finland, you’ll join about 3,000 spectators for some BBQ and live music. Of course the finals are in Finland.

Oct 9, 11am, no cost, Sunday River, 15 South Ridge Rd, Newry, ME, 207-824-3000
