Bucky Lasek does the Dew
(Dew Tour handout)

1. Dew Tour 2011

I will never be cool enough to be a skateboarder. Or a BMXer. Generally, extreme sports ... out. But that doesn’t mean I can’t watch pros such as Bucky Lasek, Shaun White and Ryan Nyquist do their action-sports thing for the tour’s first stop in Ocean City Thursday-Sunday. Bonus: Kid Cudi plays a free show Saturday. Ocean City Pier, 4001 Coastal Highway. $24-$29 (includes festival village access).


2. 'Captain America: The First Avenger'

A beyond-buff Chris Evans stars as dude-turned-superhero who loves him some red, white and blue shield and hates him some Nazis. Hugo Weaving plays the villain so you know he’ll be super-bad. Out Friday.


3. Guise and Dolls: A Drag Show

First of all, props for the clever title. Secondly, this is a fundraiser (that actually seems fun) for Glass Mind Theatre, which is prepping its second full season. Thirdly, drag show. Convinced? 8 p.m. Sunday. Load of Fun Theatre, 120 W. North Ave., Station North. $15-$40.

4. Zombie Strippers and Beer Part Two

I don’t think I know anyone who isn’t a fan of zombie strippers or stripper zombies. Now I won’t be as scared this time if I see someone in the street with a head wound wearing a G-string. Bourbon Street, 316 Guilford Ave., Downtown. 7 p.m. Friday. $10 advance; $13 day-of.

5. 'Hey Dude — Season 1' on DVD

I’ve already been made fun of for talking way too much about this DVD release. I just missed Brad, Melody and the gang, OK? Nothing wrong with that. Or adding this DVD to your collection. Out now.

6. Wiz Khalifa

The Wonderful Wiz brings his Rolling Papers World Tour (of course) to Merriweather, and brings along Mac Miller, Big Sean, Curren$y and others. Your best weekend bet for a contact high, clearly. 3:30 p.m. doors Sunday. 10475 Patuxent Parkway. Columbia. $35-$45. merriweathermusic.com

7. 'I Love City Life' Happy Hour

You don’t have to own one of those bumper stickers or license plates to attend. Just share the sentiment. Plus you can win three-day grounds admission tickets to the upcoming Baltimore Grand Prix. 6-8 p.m. Friday. Gaslight Square, 1401 Severn St., Ridgley’s Delight. $10 (benefits Live Baltimore).

8. 'Entourage' season premiere

Start your goodbye to the dudes and their sometimes witty references and sexual shenanigans! Until the inevitable movie. 10:30 p.m. Sunday, HBO


9. 'Living Proof'

Directors Kalima Young and Erin Davies screen their film featuring 12 LGBT youth from Baltimore who write a play based on their lives. Several documentary stars will be on hand for a post-film discussion. 6 p.m. Friday. Creative Alliance, 3134 Eastern Ave., Highlandtown $5-$10

10. Charm City Roller Girls

These home matchups help make summer more endurable. On Saturday, the bouts include a first-time meeting of the CCRG All Stars and the Jet City Roller Girls All Stars of Everett, Wash. You’re going down, Pacific Northwest! 5:30 doors, 6:30 bouts. Du Burns Arena, 1301 S. Ellwood Ave. $12-$25.
