K12 Gallery and TEJAS are hosting the 9th annual Art Off this weekend.

At the night at the Air Force Museum you can meet military re-enactors, Star Wars characters, and zoo animals; view or sit inside a cockpit; experience virtual reality; participate in kid’s activities; take a simulator ride; check-out a movie, and much more. This is tonight, 6 to 10pm.

Spend the day at Aullwood Farm learning ways you can take Action for Birds! Explore native plants, and learn what you can do today to make the world a better place for both birds and people. A special selection of bird friendly and environmentally sustainable items will be available for purchase, including the Aullwood Bird Seed Sale, reusable glass straws, bird friendly coffee, and more. This is Saturday, 9am to 4pm.

The 9th annual Art Off is a great way to support K12 Gallery & TEJAS while enjoying a fast-paced, creative evening! Local artists will be offering live demonstrations along with Art Off, a live painting competition. Artwork will be judged for cash prizes and the coveted "Knot Award". It’s Saturday, 6 to 9pm.

Four women at a lingerie sale with nothing in common but a black lace bra AND memory loss, hot flashes, night sweats, not enough sex, too much sex and more! This hilarious musical parody set to classic tunes from the '60s, '70s and '80s will have you cheering and dancing in the aisles! See what 15 million fans worldwide have been laughing about for over 18 years! This is Menopause, The Musical at The Victoria on Saturday and Sunday.

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Come see the incredible transformation of The Little Exchange into a festive wonderland for their annual Holiday Open House. Every inch of the shop's old Victorian farmhouse is meticulously decorated for the season and will inspire you to bring the holiday to your house. Sunday, 11am to 5pm.

There’s nothing like a little tango to liven up a chamber music performance. Pioneered by the Argentinean Astor Piazzolla, “nuevo tango” is a seductive fusion of classical composition, jazz and older tango traditions. And in the hands of master bandoneon player, Julien Labro, the music is both astonishing and irresistible. Sears Recital Hall at UD, Sunday, 3pm.

Gotta go….
