Three Stooges and Classic Bugs Bunny Screening
If there was ever a time to take advantage of the free outdoor movie screenings that befall the Hub throughout the year, it’s summer. Mainly because that’s the only season worth doing it in Boston. Who cares, though? Grab your favorite flask and a few friends and catch some Three Stooges slapstick shorts on Wednesday (with a bonus of classic Bugs Bunny cartoons). Caveat: All Curly impressions will be subject to ridicule.
SCATV. 22 Vinal Ave., Somerville. 7:30pm/all ages/FREE. For more information, visit scatvsomerville.org/news/scatv-presents-cinema-somerville-movie-series
FroYo and Indian Pizza in Central Square
Remember the old Indian Spices spot in Central Square? Don’t answer that, because it doesn’t matter. Not in a mean and dismissive way, but because over the holiday weekend the place decided to morph into the weird hybrid of a self-serve froyo spot and a house of fresh-made Naan pizzas, because if there’s one thing that’s been missing from your life, it’s a place to get Indian pizza and froyo. Don’t ask questions. Just eat.

Ward #6 Show Closing Party
The last time you picked up an anthology of short stories by Anton Chekhov, you probably thumbed through a few of them and said, “Huh … not bad.” And speaking of Chekhov, you should hit the last night of the Ward #6 group art show curated by Chuck McNally and inspired by a short Chekhov story from 1892. We’re not entirely sure what that means, but art party + Russian literature + PBR (that’ll be there too) sounds good to us.
Sweetree Ink. 281A Mt. Auburn St., Watertown. 7-11pm/21+/FREE. For more information, visit sweetreeink.com
World Naked Bike Ride Boston
Maybe you’ve always wanted to strip off your clothes and ride a bike through the city for a couple hours. Maybe you like watching people do that instead of being naked yourself. Or maybe you agree with the World Naked Bike Ride’s message of confronting the dangers urban cyclists and pedestrians face in a world dominated by oil dependence and automobiles. Either way: World Naked Bike Ride, people. Don’t forget to wax.
Starts at North Point Park. 6 Museum Way, Cambridge. 9pm/18+/FREE. For more information, visit facebook.com/wnbrboston
HackCycle Exhibit Closing
Around you orbits all manner of technology on a daily basis. Just sitting there. And if you head to the Nave Gallery on Saturday, you can see how the HackCycle community art exhibit celebrated recycled digital goods of the 21st century by turning them into statement pieces, sculptures, visual displays, and more. In short, if the transformation of hardware into art is your thing, this is too. And it’s your last chance before it closes.
Nave Gallery. 155 Powder House Blvd., Somerville. 1-5pm/all ages/FREE. For more information, visit navegallery.org
With news that Netflix is resurrecting everyone’s favorite modern-day camp movie, Wet Hot American Summer, you can catch up with star of the original and ’90s comedy presence Janeane Garofalo as she performs a set at the Paradise on Saturday. Think of it as a reason to remember when she was as important to Gen X-ers as Emma Stone is to whatever today’s ironically detached youth are called now.
Paradise Rock Club. 967 Comm Ave., Boston. 8pm/18+/$34. For more information, visit crossroadspresents.com/paradise-rock-club
