5 Things To Do This Weekend in Louisville (12/2)

FRIDAY

Baby It’s Cold Outside Winter Extravaganza Play Louisville Free with donation (or $10)  |  7 p.m. Join Derby City Bears and Derby City Sisters for a winter party that includes acts by Louisville Gay Men’s Chorus, VOICES of Kentuckiana and Louisville’s best drag queens, as well as an ugly, winter sweater contest and photos with a naughty Santa. Get in free if you bring a new or gently-used winter coat, hat, scarf, pair of gloves, etc. Proceeds benefit the House of Ruth.

Don’t Krampus My Style: An Alternative Holiday Show Block Party Handmade Boutique Free  |  5:30 p.m. Skip all of the g-rated holiday art shows for this naughty art show. Expect plenty of Krampus- and Gremlin-inspired art, with work by local and national artists including Gemma Correll, Lyndi Lou, Chloe Edwards, Dixxie Mae, Miss Happy Pink, AngryBlue, Darrenn Canton, Jeff Gaither, Jennifer Meyers, Joe King and Jada Lynn.

Roast of Darth Vader (Dec. 2-3) The Bard’s Town $15-$20  |  7:30 & 10 p.m. Character Assassination, Louisville’s own “roguish roasters,” are setting their sights on Disney’s new “corporate cash cow,” Darth Vader. So before you pre-order your “Star Wars: Rogue One” tickets simply because you got a 5 second shot of Vader in the trailer, you might want to first witness this “fully armed and operational comedy show.”

SATURDAY

Bardstown Road Aglow Bardstown Road Free  |  Dusk ‘til 10 p.m. It started 31 years ago as a simple tradition of lighting candles in storefronts to welcome the holiday season, but now it is now a full on festival. Businesses will be putting up their best holiday decorations with special sales, live music, hot chocolate, holiday cocktail specials and more. Proceeds benefit the nonprofit WaterStep.

SUNDAY

UofL Women’s Basketball vs. UK KFC Yum! Center $10  |  7 p.m. For all the UofL basketball fans looking for some hope that we won’t be defeated by UK, yet again,. Look no further than the No. 4-ranked UofL women’s basketball team, which will play No. 20-ranked Kentucky this Sunday. This is probably UofL’s best shot at winning against Kentucky this year. So show up and pack the house for this rivalry game.
