When looking to move out of an apartment of four years, it can be daunting to even know where to begin.

Sort through clothes? Nah, let’s wait for a day when you didn’t just demolish a triple-layer plate of nachos. Empty out the boxes in your closet with old electronics and papers? Pssh, that’ll be cake. What about those boxes under your bed? Uhhh. Well, I mean … uh …

OK, come on. At least sort through the bookshelves to weed those out. You can’t seriously think you’ll read all tho … DON’T TALK ABOUT MY BOOKS THAT WAY YOU SUNUVA.

OK, OK. Well you have to start somewhere.

There’s a bunch of booze left over from years of parties. Maybe you should spend time planning a party to get rid of all that. And while you’re at it, plan on busting out the beer-pong table your dipshit ex left there that needs a farewell of its own before being tossed.

(Which reminds me … anyone want a beer-pong table?)

Step 1: Find a date all four of your friends can make work.

Step 2: Convince those beauties that they can stay up past 10 p.m. to drink with you.

Step 3: Load up songs your BFF’s boyfriend hates to embarrass the shit out of him.

Step 4: LET’S DO THIS.

So, that’s my week. Here’s what all you lovelies can do around Boulder:

The Summer Games have returned to the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art (1750 13th St.), and on Friday (6 – 9 p.m.) head over for a street ping-pong tournament, art and sports trivia, beer from Finkel and Garf and food from Tacos del Norte’s truck. Info: bmoca.org.

The North Boulder Underground will be performing at Twisted Pine Brewing (3201 Walnut St., Suite A) Saturday at 7 p.m.

The Goonies will be rocking out at the Bohemian Biergarten (2017 13th St.) Friday at 10 p.m. All ’80s dance moves welcome for just $5.

The Berliner Weisse has been unleashed at Fate Brewing Co. (1600 38th St.) this week. Check out this summertime treat.

To prove I know fun can be had sans booze… The Boulder Dance Coalition is hosting the International Dance Festival at the 1300 block of Pearl Street Saturday and Sunday, where you’ll be treated to all sorts of different dance styles. Info: boulderdancecoalition.org; free

You’ll want to take that craft brew-loving papa of yours to Avery Brewing (4910 Nautilus Ct.) Sunday. From 11 a.m.-10 p.m., dads get a free pint for Father’s Day.

Thanks to the Boulder International Film Festival, we can all check out the Sundown Cinema Saturday on the Hill (13th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue), where there will be a short-film series, Father’s Day cookout and grub from Cafe Aion and The Sink. Info: thehillboulder.com

Let’s not pretend we don’t like beer on Mondays, too. The first batch of Twenty Two will be released at Avery Brewing Monday from 5-11 p.m. This dry-hopped wild ale will delight you with a perfectly respectable 6.8 percent ABV.
