3free_logo.gif Pinching pennies? Chic but cheap? We understand. Here are three free events this week for your going out pleasure.

Editor's note: Sorry for the late suggestions this week. I just got back from a far-from-free trip to Japan!

Thursday, June 19

- 'Abandoned in the Arctic" Screening @ the Harvard Museum of Natural History: Could you eat a fellow hiker to survive? This new 90-minute film traces the 1881 Adolphus Greely polar research expedition to build an arctic research station on Ellesmere Island. His party started 24 men strong; after three years of starvation and mutiny, only six men lived to tell the tale. Stick around post-screening for a Q&A panel with director Gino Del Guercio and Greely's great, great, grandson, James Shedd, among others. Might not be a great date movie. Just a hunch. 7 p.m.

Saturday, June 21

- Dance Party Massacre Release Party @ LAB Boston: Alex Dakoulas' t-shirts mix horror and lightness, fear and fun. To wit: His "Blood on the Dancefloor" design features an 80s high-top punctured with a butcher knife. Celebrate the launch of his local Dance Party Massacre line at LAB in Allston if you dare. DJ Nato will provide the soundtrack. 7-9:30 p.m.

Sunday, June 22

- Chinatown Main Street Festival: C-Town is a pretty cool place. Enjoy lion and folk dancing, Asian arts and crafts, martial arts demonstrations, and of course, dim sum at this colorful celebration. We have neighborhood envy just thinking about it. 11 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
