Buy these tickets now: Pecha Kucha Night 15 (March 7)

Cheer: Edmonton Oilers vs. Phoenix Coyotes (Saturday)

You Can Handle The Truth: This month's Social Media Breakfast explores where social media and the law intersect. Drop in to Startup Edmonton Headquarters in the Mercer Warehouse on Friday morning at 8:30am to join in the fun.  

Hollywood in Edmonton: Oscar Night at the Varscona! The Varscona Theatre is celebrating the 84th Academy Awards with cinephiles, prize draws, and live entertainment as you watch all the action. It all starts on Sunday at 6:30pm.

Geek Chic: The thirst for deeper, more nerdy knowledge will be quenched at Nerd Nite #4 (Thursday). Listen to entertaining talks about toy collecting, sewers (presenter Don Iveson promises it's actually interesting), and a U of A researcher's quest for absolute zero temperature. Feel free to send popcorn and drinks in the direction of City and Dale's resident nerd (Gillian) at the show.

Party, Patio, Parka: Latitude 53's Parka Patio is for fans of art (that's indoors), music, a silent auction, and the open winter air. The party starts at 8pm on Saturday.

R.I.P. E.R.: We're sad to see this wonderful place go. Catch the last few shows at Elevation Room on Friday, Saturday, and the Farewell Show on Wednesday Feb 29. Tickets are $8-10 at the door (the basement of Transcend on Jasper Ave).
