What to do this weekend

1. Stroll through Brookside during the cutesy shopping district’s yearly art fair. The Brookside Art Annual kicks off today at 5 p.m. and lasts through Sunday.

2. Consider the pros and cons of getting a weave. And Her Hair Went With Her brings African American, female salon talk to the Unicorn Theatre, on stage through May 5.

3. Bet on a winner. The Kentucky Derby happens in Louisville, Kentucky, this Saturday. For those of us who can’t be there to smell the horseshit, gerbils will race at Tower Tavern during the 2 to 7 p.m. Derby Day festivities.

4. Take in an old classic. Katherine Hepburn breaks hearts in black and white in The Philadelphia Story, screening Saturday and Sunday at the Tivoli Cinemas.

5. Have a history lesson. Sunday is Founders Day at the Kansas City Museum, which means the usual lessons about the local past coincide with family friendly games, entertainment and cookies.

6. Have beer and pizza with Pitch food blogger Jonathan Bender.

He’ll be at Waldo Pizza‘s Tap

Room on Sunday from 5 to 7 p.m. to talk about his new book LEGO:

A Love Story.
