For most, it’s just another weekend. But for me, it’s “My Birthday Weekend.” So if I were actually still excited about birthdays and celebrating them, here are the events that I would be participating in to do so.


Fifth Annual Where’s Waldo Bar Crawl at The EpiCentre (210 E. Trade St.): Waldo will be easy to find this weekend, as there will be thousands in uptown attempting to break a world record. Check-in is at 7 p.m. in front of Whisky River. $15 per Waldo (includes cover to all EpiCentre venues). 704-516-2674.

Artists in the Round at Crown Station Coffee House and Pub (1425 Elizabeth Ave.): A showcase of five acts, including R&B/soul artist Anitra Jay, songwriter/guitarist Rush Pfeifer and writer/poet Kurma Murrain. 8 p.m. $8 in advance, $10 at the door. 980-224-8020.


Nan’s on Saturdays at Nan and Byron’s (1714 South Blvd.): The launch of this new weekly party where you can dance off your dinner, featuring DJ Clay Hefner. 11 p.m.-2 a.m. No cover. 980-224-7492.

Beer Olympics at Heist Brewery (2909 N. Davidson St.): These winter drinking games include beer pong, flip cup, quarters, and basket pong (whatever that is). The opening ceremonies are at 1 p.m. $25 per two-person team; all proceeds benefit the Charlotte Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. 704-375-8260.


Buff Dynasty Drag Brunch at Hartigan’s Irish Pub & Restaurant (601 S. Cedar St.): The show features Buff Dynasty, Miley Vyrus, Britney Queers, and the men of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation dressed in drag to help raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
