Adults’ Night Out – AZ Science Center [Phoenix]

Star Trek Day at Gotham City Comics [Mesa]

An excuse for fans to get together and talk trek? That should be enough, but they’re also boasting freebies, Klingon speaking, and Star Trek cookies! Bam. Starts at noon.

War Games [Phoenix]

Ah, the movie that taught us to decline invitations to play thermonuclear war from strange government computers. Gather with other fans of classic hacking movies and enjoy a teeny tiny Ferris as he races the clock. At the Phoenix Art Museum at 1pm.

Weird Al – Alpacolypse [Mesa]

His royal weirdness is braving the heat to entertain us this weekend. You should definitely go if you believe it truly IS all about the Pentiums, baby. At the Mesa Arts Center arount 7:30pm.
