My friends and I are in a bit of a movie rut.

Which is saying something, since most of our time is spent watching "Friends" over and over ... and over ... and over ...

I blame the closure of Blockbuster (since I'm too poor to afford internet that allows streaming) and my lack of DVDs.

It's gotten to the point that we've turned to the Twilight saga just for a laugh. Makes one hell of a drinking game, too.

But I don't want you to end up like two drunk 20-somethings wondering what made Kristen Stewart so constipated. So I vote you return to the classics.

This Sunday, folks at License No. 1 (2115 13th St.) are hosting a Classic Movie Night, with a showing of "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and "The Breakfast Club" in a double feature. And well, that's just awesome.

Who doesn't love seeing Emilio Estevez and Molly Ringwald doing dated dance moves you can later bring to the bars?

Anyway, the films start at 5 p.m.

In need of laughs outside of Twilight? Then head over to the Bohemian Biergarten (2017 13th St.) this Sunday. At 7 p.m., Troy Baxley, a two-time national finalist of the HBO Comedy Festival, will be on stage to give you some chuckles or obnoxious snort laughter.

It's free, by the way. And a great way to relax with a good show and good beer.

As I have done before, now, I must tell you to go place your bets. On crabs. And no, not on whether your friend gets them. I mean the hermit crabs down at The West End Tavern (926 Pearl St.). They're hosting their own crab races an hour before the Belmont Stakes.

They'll also have Woodford Reserve Mint Juleps and Belmont Breeze Cocktails for you to sip on as you watch the horses go. Talk about a grown-up alternative to a fish bowl.

Just in case you're in need of some afternoon fun, all you need to is wander over to the 1300 block of Pearl Street on Sunday. The Boulder Jewish Festival has returned for its 20th year, and it's got tons of fun starting at 11 a.m. Watch live entertainment, feast on ethnic food, check out fine art and just have some fun. Stepping out of your element can be nice, trust me.

Oh, and because I know you're all desperate for new beer all the time (man we're spoiled in Colorado), the folks at Wild Woods Brewing (5460 Conestoga Ct.) are releasing their Sagebrush Wheat Thursday. Go try it out, and then sample the rest of them. Their flights are definitely worth it.

Over at West Flanders Brewing (1125 Pearl St.), Lantern Band will hit the stage at 10 p.m. this Friday. Add in one of their brewskies, and you've got yourself a mellow night with friends.

Or hey, head over to Conor O'Neills on Saturday for Slanted Jack. Apparently, they're a four-piece collaboration that fuses funk, rock, jazz, etc. for a unique sound. Head over at 10 p.m. and take in something new.
