Monday, August 25

FILM: Dodge City has one of the most underrated backyards in the city, and it’s the perfect place to catch an outdoor movie, especially if you can’t put up with the crowds of Screen on the Green. Grab a seat at a table and catch Weekend at Bernie’s and What About Bob? Miller High Life and whiskey shots are $5 all night, there’ll be free popcorn, and chili cheese dogs will be served until the bar closes. Happy hour runs 6 to 9, as well. Free. 8 PM.

Tuesday, August 26

SING: Like singing in front of people but aren’t totally comfortable with being the center of attention? Head to Stetson’s for People’s Choir, a sing-along night in which everyone at the bar participates. If there’s not a ’70s sitcom where this happens, I would be shocked. This week’s theme is “gone wild,” meaning all of the songs will be about animals, by bands with animal names, or otherwise tangentially related to animals. Free. 8 PM.

Wednesday, August 27

VARIETY: The Wonderland Circus variety show is back after what seems like a long hiatus (though it’s possible I just missed it happening last month). As usual, you’ll get a whole mix of artists and performers, including a couple of comedians, a musical group (the Uptown Boys Choir), and a burlesque dancer. Free. 8:30 PM.

Thursday, August 28

WINE: Slate Wine Bar is turning two, and, like any toddler, it’s acting a bit irrationally: For just $30, you’ll get unlimited tastes of eight different types of wine, along with happy hour food specials all night. Let’s just hope you have an understanding boss who’ll let you come in a bit late Friday morning. Tickets ($30) are available online. 6 PM onward.
