Get Out: Read, Ride and Circle the City.
By bike, by mini-car, or by imagination, you'll find your way around Brookline's big neighbor. Or, you'll scream after a full Night of the Creeps.
When/Where: Dependable Cleaners, all weekend
Why: For every book your kids read this summer, until August 13, they can enter to win a new bike (drawings are on Mondays). Simply finish a book, then fill out a form and drop it off at Dependable Cleaners. The event is, in part, sponsored by Patch. For some suggestions on reading materials, see our Summer Reading Lists!
How much: Free
When/Where: 11:59 p.m. Friday and Saturday night, Coolidge Corner Theatre
Why: Be thrilled at the @fter Midnite Cult Cuts showing of "Night of the Creeps." When an alien-riddled frozen body from the '50s is thawed by a frat in the '80s, the campus becomes a feeding frenzy. "The good news is your dates are here. The bad news is... they're dead."
How much: $9
When/Where: Puppet Showplace Theatre, Friday and Saturday, 10:30 a.m., 1 p.m.
Why: A well-known story, but with a dog instead of a human. Enjoy a hilarious romp through the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, with an impish dog who doesn't even follow the instructions of the puppeteers. Presented with traditional Bohemian-style marionettes on a tabletop stage.
How much: $10.
