The weekend has never been fined for grabbing.

13 Shorts and a Party in Cambridge

If you haven’t waded into the waters of the Independent Film Festival this week, Friday is your last shot. For $20, you’ll catch 13 short films from New England filmmakers. And starting at 8pm, there’s an after-party at Firebrand Saints in Cambridge. Tux optional.

Saturday
Celebrating Somerville’s Best Creation
FLUFFING

Celebrating Somerville’s Best Creation

A really long time ago, Fluff was invented. In Somerville. And on Saturday, there’s a massive celebration of the stuff all afternoon. Think: two stages, fluff jousting, marshmallow tosses, live local bands and even a fluff lick-off. Let’s hope you don’t get paired with an ex for that one.

Sunday
Watching Lumberjacks Compete in NH
JACK-ED UP

Watching Lumberjacks Compete in NH

We’re entering peak leaf-changing season. So if you’re getting a jump on things this weekend with a basket filled with snacks and a lengthy drive through New Hampshire, you can hit the lumberjack competition in Berlin on Sunday for BBQ, competitive logrolling, chainsawing and even women’s axe-throwing. Hot.

Tuesday
Oysters and Beer, Together Again
MOLLUSK-Y

Oysters and Beer, Together Again

Legal Sea Foods is celebrating Hemingway’s favorite shellfish by way of a five-course mollusk-and-craft-beer dinner on Tuesday. The goods: bacon-fried oyster gumbo paired with Saison Dupont Farmhouse Ale, and Kumo oysters with vanilla cream foam teamed with Left Hand Milk Stout. Drool. Chin. Wipe.

Oct 2, 6:30pm, $55, Legal Sea Foods, 5 Cambridge Center, Cambridge, tickets at 617-864-3400
