Glory Daze Featuring Franki Chan at The Gramophone (Saturday)
If you read our interview with Franki Chan already, you know that the DJ is a big fan of X-Men and Spiderman and The Avengers. On Saturday he brings his IHEARTCOMIX (now the name makes sense, right?) show to the Gramophone. It's $5 for ladies at the door and (sorry guys) $7 for guys. Tickets are also just $5 if you order through the Gramophone website. The event begins at 8 p.m. and runs to 3 a.m. More details about the party are on this Facebook page.

Watch the Kentucky Derby (Saturday)
It's called the most exciting two minutes in sports for a reason -- all that pent-up excitement, hype and anticipation, not to mention the loads of cash bet upon the will of an animal to win a race -- and on Saturday you can watch the Kentucky Derby, most anywhere, for free. Post time (i.e. the time the race is set to begin) is at 5:04 p.m. Numerous establishments in St. Louis are hosting parties, and even ones that aren't will surely be airing the race. The weather on Saturday in Louisville -- and in St. Louis -- is supposed to be rainy, so avoid the outdoor patios and instead watch the the fancy hats be rained upon (Churchill Downs has a no umbrellas policy) from the comfort of your local establishment.

Luehrs' Carnival at St. Louis Mills Mall (All Weekend)
Forget your video games, iPads and whatever electronic amusement devices were invented in the time it took you to read this far: If you want to have some good, cheap fun, look for a carnival. Hey, here's one now. Luehrs' Carnival set up its rides and midway in the parking lot of the St. Louis Mills Mall (5555 St. Louis Mills Boulevard) on  Thursday, April 22. The old-fashioned fun continues every day through Sunday, May 2, barring bad weather. Admission is free, and ride tickets are $1.50. Continue reading about the Luehrs' Carinval at St. Louis Mills.
