Gargantuan sunglasses, mile-high hair and attitude to spare fills the Avenue for one of Baltimore's most popular summer fests, which also offers good eats, drinks and the ultra-competitive Best Hon contest. The Best Hon motto: "The higher the hair, the closer to God!" Amen. 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturday; noon-6 p.m. Sunday. 36th Street, Hampden. Free. honfest.net Jordan Bartel, b
2. 'The Tree of Life'
So many reasons to see Terrence Malick's first film in six years: a jaw-droppingly beautiful trailer, star power (Brad Pitt, Sean Penn) and a genuine aura of mystery surrounding the plot. Even with mixed reviews, it won the Palme d'Or at Cannes. Good enough for me. Out Friday. Wesley Case, b
3. 'Through the Wormhole With Morgan Freeman' season premiere
What?! Wormhole theories and Morgan Freeman on one program? This has got to be the best thing ever. Season 2 premieres 10 p.m. Wednesday on Science. Danielle Kees, b
4. Sex. Art. Rock N Roll.
For a measly 10 bucks (or $40 VIP) at this Planned Parenthood fundraiser/festival on Saturday, you can enjoy live music, a "funky photo booth" (I'll bite) and help lower unwanted pregnancy rates. 9 p.m.-midnight (VIP reception 6-8 p.m.) Area 405, 405 Oliver St., Greenmount West. 410.576.2165. Colleen Dorsey, b
Time to catch up on “Breaking Bad,” with just over a month to spare before Season 4 begins on AMC. Out Tuesday. Brian Krista, b
Aliens ... or monsters ... or monster-aliens (it’s hard to tell from the trailer) escape after a train crashes and they wreak havoc on a small town in 1979. You’ve got me intrigued, J.J. Abrams. Well done. Opens Friday. Marissa Gallo, b
If Kanye West was a chef, he might look and sound a little something like this. Looks like Yeezy has a back-up plan if this whole hip-hop thing doesn’t work out. Marissa Gallo, b
8. Arctic Monkeys, Suck It and See
Yes, thank you. I think I will. Drops Tuesday. Colleen Dorsey, b
9. St. Nicholas Greek Folk Festival
Sure, there’s the authentic Greek food (and lots of it) and dancing (again, lots of it). But I’m curious about the headliner, comedian Angelo Tsarouchas. I think what my life has been missing has been comedy from someone who dubs himself “The Funny Greek.” Noon-11 p.m. Thursday; 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Friday and Saturday; noon-10 p.m. Sunday. St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, 520 S. Ponca St., Greektown. Free. greekfolkfestival.org Jordan Bartel, b
10. Tour dem Parks, Hon!
So much better than that stuffy Tour de France, this annual bike ride features four routes through a wide array of city parks, including Carroll, Patterson, Clifton and Druid Hill. 7 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday. Carroll Park, 1500 Washington Blvd. Registration and information at tourdemparks.org. Jordan Bartel, b
