James and the Giant Peach

Central Florida Earth Day

Sat., April 25, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
phone 321-331-1859

Earth is pretty OK. It has a bunch of air we can breathe, water we can drink and food we can eat. And until we can find a habitable exosolar planet to colonize (fingers crossed for you, Kepler-442b!), it’s pretty much the only place we can live. Each year, the Vegetarians of Central Florida group (also known for their annual VegFest) gets together to throw basically a big “thank you” party for Earth with food, music and tons of activities. This year, look for a lot of food-centric activities and speakers, including tasty cooking demos, and keep an eye out for Ibex Puppetry, who are putting together a bunch of puppets for an Endangered Species Parade. If that sounds like something you’d like to capture for posterity, join Thomas Thorspecken for the World Wide SketchCrawl from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., then follow him to Fashion Square Mall to sketch another cool event happening this Saturday. Another thing we like about this little corner of Earth? There’s always tons to do. free

Boss Krang Art Show

Sat., April 25, 12 p.m.

If you’re a child of the ’90s, you likely spent your weekday afternoons after school watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the floor of your parents’ living room. Though Mike, Don, Leo and Raph’s most famous enemy has always been Shredder – the nemesis of their mentor, Splinter – the brains behind the baddies was Krang, a living brain from Dimension X who used his genius to design high-tech weaponry aimed at making large batches of turtle soup out of the reptilian ninjas. The bizarreness of Krang’s concept has kept the character out of any of the filmed adaptations, but he’s finally getting his due at Acme Comics this weekend. An art show devoted to the oddly cute cerebellum is taking place there, inspired by an Argentinian art show called Krang LSD. Expect to see illustrations, paintings, sculptures, custom toys and even a life-sized model of Krang in his walker at this show. The organizers have had such an overwhelming response to the concept that Pat Fraley, the original voice of Krang from the ’90s TV show, recorded voiceover for a promo spot, which you can see below. Come hungry, because Daydream Pizza will be offering up their signature TMNT-inspired pepperoni and marshmallow pizza in the parking lot. It’s a no-brainer. free

Downtown Pour

Sat., April 25, 4-7 p.m.

Church Street in downtown Orlando was made for block parties, and we can’t think of a better place for this year’s Downtown Pour. More than 40 vendors will line the streets, which will be closed to vehicle traffic, pouring sips of wine, beer and spirits for participants who can (and judging from previous years’ events, do) drink themselves silly. It’s not all about the alcohol (although it kind of is), as there will be art to browse and live music to keep you entertained. When you get hungry, participating restaurants include the Dubliner, Rusty Spoon, Graffiti Junktion and the new Ferg’s Sports Depot – although food’s not part of the pour, so bring some cash. Tickets for the event are only $20 ($30 if you buy them the day of the event), and at that price point, you know you can easily sip your money’s worth. Just don’t drive home afterward – that’s what Uber and Mears are for. $20-$30
