Black Box Film Cult presents ‘Fatal Deviation’ Seidenfaden’s Cafe Free  |  9-10:30 p.m. Black Box Film Cult finds the “weirdest, most bizarre, awe-inspiring and hilarious movies” to screen for your viewing pleasure at Seidenfaden’s Cafe. And this week’s film, “dredged up from the depths of the underground,” certainly meets those criteria. “Fatal Deviation,” is the best Irish martial-arts movie ever made… because it’s the only Irish martial-arts movie ever made. And once you’ve seen it (through tears of laughter), you’ll understand why. —Ethan Smith

Give A Day - Mayor’s Week of Service April 15–23  |  Free Every year, Mayor Greg Fischer asks Louisvillians to show the world their capacity for compassion with the “Give A Day” week of service. As Mr. Mayor himself put it, “Whether you give an hour, a day, donate blood, give food, clothing or simply help a neighbor, everyone can do something.” So volunteer for one of the larger projects on the Give A Day website, or take it upon yourself to do something small for a neighbor. Either way, the act of kindness will not go unnoticed. —Staff
