Honor Thy Bernie
There's just something that says "summer" about partying with a corpse, and that's never been truer than at the Downtown Independent's Weekend at Bernie's: Summer Drink-Along & Beer Pong. The 1989 comedy "classic" chronicles the beachside hijinks of Andrew McCarthy and Jonathan Silverman, a pair of working stiffs with a dead man on their hands their employer (Terry Kiser) whose mafia killer thinks his victim is still alive. So what do these loveable losers do? Throw a party of course! The debauchery continues in 1993's Weekend at Bernie's II, which follows the original. Did I mention there's beer? Downtown Independent, 251 S. Main St., dwntwn.; Sat., July 9, 4 p.m.; $15. (213) 617-1033, downtownindependent.com.
Sat., July 9, 3-9 p.m., 2011
