Things to do for April 04, 2013

The Weekender

Wings, Roller Derby and a Schlock Film Fest

The weekend is squeezing you tight.

Three Days of Schlock-y Fun

Three Days of Schlock-y Fun

Bad things are just that: bad. But there’s a bad that’s so bad... it’s good. Case in point—the awesomely schlock-y films gathered for 35mm screenings at the Brattle this weekend, from the 1960s through, well, last year’s Judge Dredd reboot. The original would’ve worked, too.

Like Hot Tub Time Machine at Loon

Like <em>Hot Tub Time Machine</em> at Loon

Recall the ski slopes of 1980s America. If you can’t, head to Loon Saturday morning for DJ-spun ’80s tunes (by the moguls, natch) while you don all manner of neon and Body Gear. Later, an all-’80s cover band strikes up at the lodge. Time to dust off those moonwalking shoes.

Competitive Roller Derby-ing

Competitive Roller Derby-ing

Something about spring creates a desire to see men and women on roller skates bashing into one another at high speeds on an indoor track. Like at the season opener of the Pioneer Valley Roller Derby league, where teams from western Mass and Vermont battle in a 10,000-seat arena. Ah, April.

Sox Opener = Monday Bloody Marys

Sox Opener = Monday Bloody Marys

The Sox home opener is this Monday afternoon. And you can celebrate your strategic hooky-playing at Church with make-your-own Bloodys and mimosas all day. You’ll have fresh fruit, purees, juices and pickled veggies to add to cava or bacon-infused vodka, depending on which way you go. So, yeah, you’ve got options.

Apr 8, 11am, cash bar, Church, 69 Kilmarnock St, 617-236-7600

NCAA Final. Wings for a Quarter. Boom.

NCAA Final. Wings for a Quarter. Boom.

Your NCAA bracket predictions have been called “sage-like” (well, mostly). And with the final on Monday, you can watch your picks finish out just as you called it with rounds of 25-cent wings at Olde Magoun’s Saloon. Be sure to napkin up before kissing anyone while celebrating.
