Still not ready to give up on your raucous weekend? Combine your detoxing/intoxicating into one event with Yoga + Beer at Goodwood Brewing.

Pilot Season!
Free  |  9 p.m.
The people of Kaiju have heard so many good ideas for new TV shows, they’ve decided to green light them all for production. The twist is that these pilot shows must compete against each other to stay on air. So this Tuesday watch three new shows, created by some of Louisville’s funniest comics, and help chose (by audience poll) which one will be picked up for another episode!

Vinyl Night with Surface Noise
Mile Wide Taproom

Black Box Film Cult presents: “Barbarian: The Last Great Warrior King”
Seidenfaden’s Cafe
Free  |  9-10:30 p.m.
Black Box Film Cult finds the “weirdest, most bizarre, awe-inspiring and hilarious movies” and then screens them at Seidenfaden’s Cafe for everyone to openly mock and laugh at. This week’s film is “Barbarian: The Last Great Warrior King,” a sword and sorcery film staring a knock-off Arnold Schwarzenegger facing a clearly drunken wizard with plenty of hilariously inept film-making in between.


Sanctuary for All — Metro Council Meeting
Metro City Hall
Free  |  6-7 p.m.
Let Metro Council know that you want Louisville to declare itself a sanctuary city. Join Louisville Showing Up for Racial Justice and several other activist organizations at Thursday’s Metro Council meeting. During the public comment period, residents will explain why they believe “Sanctuary for All means saying no to executive orders that hurt immigrant families, refugees, black communities, LGBTQ youth, the disabled, and low income and working people.” The more people in attendance, the louder the message.

Twilight Thursday

Still craving horse racing? Well you may have a problem, but ignore it for now and join Churchill Downs for Twilight Thursday. There, you will find live music, food trucks, betting tips from resident handicappers and best of all, $1 beers! The first race is scheduled to go off at 5 p.m., with the last race at 8:23 p.m.
