10 things to do under $5 this week in Louisville (10/3)


Brew Guru Yoga
Flat12 Bierwerks
$5 Suggested Donation  |  7 p.m.
You no longer have to choose between everyone’s two favorite after-work activities, yoga and drinking. Now you can mix the two at Flat12 Bierwerks with the Brew Guru series. Just bring your yoga mat to Flat12 (a few blocks away from the Big Four Bridge if you want to do a little walking too) and enjoy an hour-long yoga class and $1-off pints.


Game Show Night!
Free  |  9 p.m.
Fact: TV game shows suck. Fact No. 2: Live game shows at Kaiju are great. And you can see two of those great game shows this Tuesday for free. First up is “Why Would I Know That?!,” which pits a panel of comedians against each other and the audience in a game of “useless knowledge and stupid prizes!” Second is “Make ‘Em Laugh,” where audience members try to win free drinks by not laughing as comedians try to make them break their straight face.


Screening of “The Night of the Hunter”
Free (donations accepted)  |  8:30 p.m.
As if this presidential election hasn’t been scary enough, October is here which means it’s time to really get spooky. And you can kick it all off this week with a screening of “The Night of the Hunter,” a 1955 horror film where lead actor Robert Mitchum’s performance, as Dreamland describes, goes “full love/hate sinister/bananas into one of the best villain roles to grace the big screen.”

Join ReSurfaced for another celebration of city revitalization starting Thursday where they will host a New2Lou Hangout with live music chosen by New2Lou, and Friday where there will be performances by the Spencer County High School Drama Club and Louisville Dance Alliance.
