National Dress Up Your Pet Day at Bark Bar // Now this is a holiday we can get behind. Get Fido into his finest and let him celebrate among equally elegant pups, where a costume gets him in free. Masks and distancing required for the humans, of course. Stop in between 4-8 p.m. Learn more here.

Off the CHARTS: Drew Jansen and Jimmy Martin // Let's try this again, shall we? UA-PTC put live (ish) music back on the calendar with its free, virtual, weekly series featuring local acts.

"Deathstalker II" Virtual BingoFlix // BYO-Aqua Net. We're guessing filmmakers didn't expect these movies to be this laughable, but here we are. The BingoFlix series offers prizes to viewers who can fill up their bingo cards with hilariously awful cliches. The recent lineup is all about sequels, and this week's cheesy (not for kiddos) flick includes evil sorcerers and Amazon women. Naturally. Showtime is 7 p.m. Learn more here.

Music on the Patio at River Bottom Winery // This is the setting we want all of 2021 to take place in, please and thank you. Located at BoBrook Farms, the winery's patio invites you to enjoy mulled wine, cheese boards and live music from Ten Penny Gypsy. Be there 3-5 p.m. Learn more here.

S’mores Extravaganza at Flyway Brewing // Flyway knows what we need. The Argenta brewery is starting 2021 strong with three weeks of s'mores and paired beers, all spaced out around fire pits in the parking lot. This week it's all about Reese's s'mores. Learn more here.
