Each week, we’ll feature a few weekend events we think you should check out.* If you know of an upcoming event that might appeal to our audience, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the details.

Thursday, Feb. 16: Third Annual Boston Chili Cup. If you didn’t get enough warm, spicy goodness at January’s Fenway Chili Cook-off, Ned Devine’s is the place to be tonight. You’ll be able to fill your tummy with as much chili as you want from restaurants across the city and wash it all down with drinks from Corona and Don Julio. Proceeds from the event benefit Community Work Services, which provides job training, placement, and support services. When and Where: 6 p.m.-10 p.m. @ Ned Devine’s (Faneuil Hall Marketplace).
Friday, Feb. 17-Sunday, Feb. 26: Some Explicit Polaroids. The relatively-new-to-Boston Brown Box Theatre Company presents British playwright Mark Ravenhill’s “fast-paced look at the lives of six people dealing with the harsh realities of politics, sex, drugs, and violence” as their latest production. Fair warning: If you’re uncomfortable with nudity, this isn’t the show for you. But if you’re looking for an inexpensive way to add a little culture to your life, Brown Box is offering pay-what-you-can performances on Sunday, Feb. 29, and Thursday, Feb. 23. When and Where: 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays @ the Boston Center for the Arts’ Calderwood Pavilion (527 Tremont St., South End).
Saturday, Feb. 18: Love Your Liver Pub Crawl. Jess Rossman is running the Boston Marathon for the American Liver Foundation -- and what better way to honor that cause than by making your liver work extra hard while helping her meet her fundraising goal? Crawlers can make a donation to Rossman’s efforts and receive a t-shirt, drink specials at participating Faneuil Hall-area bars, free food, and a chance to win some sweet prizes. Come Sunday morning, you’ll really love your liver. When and Where: Crawl begins at 3 p.m. @ Bell In Hand Tavern (45 Union St., Faneuil Hall).
Sunday, Feb. 19: Robin and Marcy’s Comedy With Wings. Join Robin Maxfield and Marcy Goldberg Sacks as they host an evening of female comedy. This once-a-month show features 6-10 female comics, plus one special celebrity guest. New comediennes and seasoned veterans alike are welcome! When and Where: Doors at 7:30 p.m., show at 8 p.m. @ Bella Luna Restaurant and Milky Way Lounge (284 Amory St., Jamaica Plain).
