1. 'Lost' series finale (right, photo by ABC)
I'm not ready to let go. I'm not ready to let go. WE HAVE TO GO BACK, KATE! I mean ... I'll be holed up near the TV 9 p.m. Sunday (it's on ABC). I'll be one sad lady come Monday. MARISSA GALLO, B

2. ZooFari
Get ready to mix, mingle and drink with big-name chefs and philanthropists alike, all while enjoying animal demonstrations and a silent auction supporting the National Zoo. B-more's own Duff Goldman will be judging a zoo-themed cake contest, too! Tickets are a little steep — $125 for zoo members and $171 for non-members — but hey, it's for a good cause. 6:30 p.m. Thursday. nationalzoo.si.edu. TIM WONG, B


3. Orioles v. Royals
The Royals aren't a big draw like the Yankees or the Red Sox, but at least the O's will have a chance at a sweep with two games against one of the worst teams in baseball. Monday and Tuesday, Camden Yards. MATT VENSEL, B 

4. Evening with Anthony Bourdain & Eric Ripert
Bourdain kinda did Baltimore wrong by dumping the city into a "Rust Belt" episode of "No Reservations." He makes up for it by sharing what "really goes on behind the kitchen doors," and brings along chef Ripert. Pay more and get the Foodie Experience. $29-$250. 8 p.m. Saturday, Hippodrome. france-merrickpac.com. ADAM SAPIRO, B

5. 'The Office' season finale
Season 6 has dimmed the show's original sparkle, but the writers still have a chance to make up for it. There have been some great season finales. So go ahead, NBC: Show me what you got. Maybe Angela has Creed's baby! I'll be watching at 9 p.m. Thursday to find out. AUBREY FORNWALT, B

6. LCD Soundsystem, This Is Happening
Although it leaked last month, the year's best album (as of today) drops Tuesday. Who knew bombastic dance songs could be so self-deprecating and, even more impressive, self-aware? It could make a grown man cry. WESLEY CASE, B

7. Karmafest
Let your inner hippie out Saturday and Sunday at Oregon Ridge Park. With musical performances, drum circles, yoga instruction and spiritual workshops, you'll feel yourself transplanted to Golden Gate Park for the weekend. Tickets are $12 per day in advance, $15 at the door. karmafest.com. BRIAN KRISTA, B

8. 'MacGruber' (left, photo by Universal)
Movies based on "SNL" characters usually fail ("A Night at the Roxbury") or really, really fail ("It's Pat"). But I have high hopes for this '80s action spoof based on the short Will Forte sketches. Plus, we're down for anything featuring Kristen Wiig playing a sidekick named Vicki St. Elmo. In theaters Friday. JORDAN BARTEL, B

9. Canstruction
Unless you're a klutz who knocks over displays at the grocery store, you're invited to Canstruction, where teams of design professionals and students build structures from canned goods. See them at work 6 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday inside the Light Street Pavilion at Harborplace, or check out the finished products through Memorial Day. The food will be donated to the Maryland Food Bank. harborplace.com. ADAM SAPIRO, B
