2 Blasts from the Past

Here are two chances to relive two eras of great entertainment, if not great styling (*big hair*). The Ottobar is hosting a ’90s dance part with tunes from Biggie, Beastie Boys, Mariah, Fatboy Slim, Cake, Will Smith, Britney, Missy Elliott and more. Break out your best fashion from the last decade of the 20th Century and get your groove on (Yeah, we said that then.) Cost is $6. The party starts at 9 p.m. theottobar.com If a different decade is calling, head to the Creative Alliance at 7 p.m. for their interactive movie night and dance party, with a screening of “Footloose.” $9 members, $12 nonmembers. creativealliance.org


Beer, Whiskey and BBQ Festival

One is enough, but in this case there is a festival with all three. We are so there. Boathouse Canton, 2-8 p.m., Tasting tickets, $1 at door, $15 for 20 in advance, boathousecanton.com
