It’s Thursday, and you have no idea what you’ll do for the weekend.

1. Ladies Night

Where/When: Left Coast Kitchen, Thursday, 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Why Go: Free all-you-can-eat cinnamon truffle popcorn with your free martini. Do we need to say more? (Note: Merrick Patch tried the popcorn and it is better than a martini.)

Pricing: Free


2. Post-Prom Midnight Madness Fundraiser

Where/When: Bellmore Knights of Columbus, Friday, 7:30 p.m. to 12 p.m.

Why Go: The Bellmore-Merrick high school kids need a place to go after prom and you need a place to go on Friday night.
