Weekend Preview: June 25th - 28th, 2015

Before 50 Shades the only whip that mattered was Indie's.
Weekend Events

If you enjoy beer (and if you don't, please leave your American flag and bald eagle at the door on your way out), you've more than likely enjoyed Florida's obsession with Cigar City Brewing. Well, indulge your liver with Barley and Vine Biergarten's Cigar City All-Tap Takeover! starting Thursday at 5:00pm and running through the whole weekend.

Break out your favorite Siouxsie and the Banshees ripped t-shirt and get your DIY punk on this weekend at the Orlando 'Zine Fest 2015 where you will learn how to screen print, make buttons, and browsing through dozens of artists' works. With live music and great vendors, this will definitely make up for the weather. Runs from Friday to Saturday, 4:00-11:00pm; free but donations encouraged.

Thursday, June 25th

Clock & Dapper is inviting you to relive your childhood as you settle in for their Summer Parlor Movie Series - Raiders of the Lost Ark. It will be an old fashioned Movie Night featuring fresh popcorn, cocktails, wine, beer, etc. with 25 actual seats and room on the floor for blankets and pillows--which really is the way old school movies should be watched. Keep your cell phones off, but come willing to yell your favorites lines from the movie. ("Snakes. Why'd it have to be snakes!") BYOBlankets and Pillows, 7:00pm, $20 pre-sale tickets which covers all the popcorn and fancy booze.

Friday, June 26th

If you want to keep up with the '80s archaeology movie theme, The Garden Theater in Winter Garden is showing Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade with trivia beforehand starting at 6:30pm, $6.

Come rain or shine (more than likely rain) CRITICAL BLAST JUNE! 2nd Annual Memorial Mass Ride will be happening to honor all those who are no longer around to join in the ride. There's bound to be a lot of love at this ride and there's also rumor of a raffle happening just before the ride. 5:30pm at Loch Haven Park, ride starts at 6:00pm sharp.

After you enjoy sleeping in, bike over to Snap! Gallery as they present SNAP! BOOK DAY, and have some coffee and mimosas while you browse limited edition European periodicals, art/photography books, magazines, and art guides. Since there are some rare pieces, this is an event limited to those 14-years of age and older. 11:00am - 4:00pm, free.

It seems there are babies everywhere recently, especially around Redlight Redlight (congrats Brent & Erica). Well, they are now hosting the long-awaited Book Release Celebration - Holic & Hinton for two authors/new dads who have had to put off celebrating being published to take care of twins (so that's four babies altogether, whew!) who now want to show off their literature and grab a beer with their fellow Orlandoans. This is where you come in: go hang out, have a drink with them, and check out their books. There will be cupcakes and in the event of babysitters cancelling on them, there will be babies everywhere (don't buy them drinks); 7:00pm.

Sunday, June 28th

You know what we haven't done recently? Uncontrollably ugly-cry in public. Well, here's the opportunity to for just $5 at the Enzian with the Family Matinee Movie: All Dogs Go to Heaven. Get there early for seats off to the corner so you don't disturb the kids with your emotional breakdown. Starts at noon.

What are you up to this weekend? Leave a comment below!
