Weekly What To Do: Other Stuff and Soda Tasting

 Really what matters most is the soda tasting, sure there's night markets and fairs, music and what have you, but for those who love pop Around the World in 80 Sips - Summer Soda Tasting 5 is the highest priority. Don't drink any other soda during the week if going, you n-n-need to live after having so much carbonated sugar water from around the world.

Felt was feature last year at AFI Fest and has made it's way onto the big screen. 
Synopsis:Amy is hanging on by a thread. Struggling to cope with past sexual trauma and the daily aggressions of a male-dominated society, she creates grotesquely-costumed alter egos that reappropriate the male form. While giving her the sense of power she craves, acting as these characters pushes her further into a world of her own making. When she begins a new relationship with a seemingly good guy, she opens herself up to him - but that vulnerability comes at a dangerous cost, and her alter egos threaten to lash out in explosive violence.
