Stacked! at SAK is an all-female musical improv troupe from Chicago that will join forces with the local talent in a show that culminates in a completely made up musical. 7:30 - 9:00pm, $12.

In keeping with the ladies theme, Nerd Nite Orlando XXIX: Ladies Nite will feature presentations "The Maiming of Botany," "Pregnancy is Weird" (by yours truly!), and "Long Live Queen Jane." This free event starts at 7:00pm, but get there early for a good spot!

Grab a six-pack and your best gal and head on over to Park Ave for their Popcorn Flicks in the Park: Muscle Beach Party hosted by the Enzian. With surfers versus gym bunnies on the beach in those '60s short shorts, we are all winners. Get there early for a good spot! 8:00pm, free.

Friday, July 10th

Never say die at PJs & A Movie: The Goonies. Get there around 7:00pm to snag a good spot and enjoy the '80s videos, and stay after the movie for the PJ contest! 8:30pm, $8 includes entry and popcorn and candy.

Speaking of taking it old school, Astro Skate Orlando is having a Grand Re-Opening where they've completely renovated the old Universal Skating Center and have new floors, skates, food, etc. The only thing they preserved is the campy fun of grabbing a buddy and showing how gracefully you can booty dance to N*Sync while on neon-colored in-line skates. And the couples-skate moments to Boyz2Men. 8:00pm, free at the Goldenrod location.

If you've never checked out the Alfond Inn, now is the time with the July Conductor Crawl to the Alfond Inn! From 6:00 to 10:00pm; starts at $5 (train ticket only) but the $25 option gets you a SunRail ticket, a drink at all three stops, happy hour specials after the first drink, and hors d'oeuvres at Alfond Inn.

Two shows not to miss this weekend are the Orlando Is Tight Compilation Fundraiser (Backbooth, $8, 7:00pm) and O-Town Meltdown (Venue 578, $10, 6:30pm).

Saturday, July 11th

Ooh-la-la, it's Audubon Park's Seventh Annual Bastille Day Celebration! With more crêpes, cheese, and wine than all of Paris (because this is the APGD, go big or go home), this is the classiest day-drinking you'll ever experience. The first event starts at 9:30am, various prices depending which events you attend.

If you're looking for something less fancy and more nerdy, look no further than Embrace Your Geekness Day at Oblivion Taproom; 4:00 to midnight, free if you don't want to eat, drink, or buy anything...

If you haven't check out Winter Garden's (relatively) new Crooked Can Brewery, which anchors Plant Street Market, then check them out this weekend; live music by local band Beemo from 6:00 to 9:00pm.

Don't miss the live watch party for Orlando City Lions vs FC Dallas at the Harp & Celt this Saturday at 7:30pm with $4 pints and $5 Tito's drinks.

Sunday, July 12th

Tickle your funny bone and get one last beer (or three, whatever) in before the work week starts again at Lil Indies' Comedy Show featuring two Atlanta comedians and two local boys; 8:00pm, free.

The Orlando Roller Derby Girls take on the Sintral Florida Derby Demons this Sunday at 5:00pm at the Semoran Skateway; doors at 4:30, tickets are $9 adults/$6 kids; beer and food for sale.
