Beer goggles are a tricky thing. Even if you're pretty sure you're wearing a pair, you can't escape their influence — and the resulting make-out-and-more session. It's really nothing to feel bad about. We've all been there. And that's probably why we all love (and are simultaneously kind of afraid of) Knocked Up. Of course, the stunning Alison (Katherine Heigl) is quite a one-night-stand score for schlubby Ben (Seth Rogen), but he's certainly endearing in his own way. If you haven't watched the film in a while or if you haven't seen it at all (damn you, reality TV!), set up your lawn chair in Soulard Market Park (Lafayette Avenue and South Ninth Street; www.fyfstl.com) for a screening of the dramedy tonight. The gates open at 7 p.m., and the movie begins at dusk (sunset will happen around 8:10 p.m.). With free admission and popcorn, you'll even be able to afford to buy some drinks! Just watch out for those goggles.
