Roll out the barrels - it's Polski Day. The annual celebration of Polish heritage at All Saints Parish runs until 7 p.m. Saturday. And the best part may very well be the eats, like the meat-stuffed cabbage rolls and a new item: bourbon balls. As Charles Ferruzza suggests, get there early.
Slow and steady wins the race at the Crossroads Kentucky Derby Pub Crawl. It's three hours and four bars, beginning this Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10.

The traditional gift for your fourth anniversary is flowers. But the Flying Saucer Draught Emporium (101 East 13th Street) knows what you really want: beer. The downtown beer bar celebrates its fourth anniversary on Sunday from noon to 10 p.m. A rare release will be tapped every hour on the hour, and prizes will be raffled. Among the beers offered are Green Flash 30th Street Pale Ale, Bell's Batch 9000, Founders Backwoods Bastard, and Stone Smoked Porter with Vanilla Beans.
All galleries should take a cue from the Brookside Art Annual, the yearly Brookside art festival that lets you look at regional and national artists while walking around with a Boulevard and a bag of caramel corn from Topsy's. The popcorn institution is joined this year by the Brookside Market, Avenues Bistro, the Brooksider Bar & Grill, and Michael Forbes Grill. The show runs from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday, May 4; 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, May 5; and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
