When/Where: , 7 p.m. Friday.
Why: Beginning with the comic impressions and stylings of Steve Carlson, the evening will take a turn for the classic as he introduces "The Talk of the Town" (1942). Of his impressions, Steve says "You never know who's going to show up."
When/Where: 8 p.m. Friday, Castlebar in Brighton
Why: Local comedians pull out their finest improv stylings in their monthly show. From their event description: "If you've ever won something, raise your right hand. Now, if you've ever lost anything, raise your left hand. If you're driving a car right now, you should probably pull over before you crash into a street sign. Now let your left hand and your right hand shake hands because we're all winners and we're all losers."
Pricing: $5 at the door.
When/Where: , 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
Why: If you have kids and a free weekend, some events are too grown up, others are too juvenile, but some are just right. In this twist on the classic story, Goldilocks flees the Bears' home, only to be sent back to apologize for her poor manners. Help the bears with chores, get some aerobics in, and enjoy a departure from Magpie Puppets' traditional style, with the puppeteer in full view.
Pricing: $10 for tickets
When/Where: west elm, 160 Brookline Ave in Boston. 2 p.m. Saturday.
Why: Local floral designer John LaRoche of blueGuava, working with some of west elm’s spring line, will show you how to take a few simple plants and make a beautiful and interesting terrarium for your home. One or two participants may also win one of LaRoche's creations to take home.
When/Where: , 3 p.m. Saturday
Why: Ipswitch distillery Privateer is coming to ensure the rum is not always gone. Sample some light appetizers, try their new style of rum, and chat about your grog of choice with the distillers.
