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

Wednesday, July 16

- Tribute to Peggy Lee @ Boston Harbor Hotel's Summer Swing: Oh, Peggy. You give me fever. The late Miz Lee — best known for sultry hits like "Fever" and "Why Don't You Do Right?" — will be the guest of honor at this week's Summer Swing on Rowes Wharf. Jitterbug and twirl as Jodi Ebling and the White Heat Orchestra remember the crooner in song. (We stopped by Summer Swing a few weeks ago. See the fabulous photos here.) 6-10 p.m.

Thursday, July 17

- 'Mean Girls' @ Seven Hills Park in Somerville: Nothing says summer like Lindsay Lohan's dorky-to-popular transformation in this 2004 flick, right? Catch the movie as part of Somerville's Somermovie Fest and watch the delicious drama unfold. We'll bring the popcorn and the "oh no, she didn'ts." 8 p.m.

Friday, July 18

- 'As You Like It' @ the Boston Common: Feeling a little guilty about spending Thursday night watching La Lohan sabotage the Plastics? Redeem and culture thyself at Shakespeare on the Common, kicking off its 2008 season this weekend. Bring a blanket, snacks, and settle in under the stars (You may need to use your imagination here.) Steven Maler, the founding artistic director of Commonwealth Shakespeare Company, is directing the comedy, so you know it's legit. 8 p.m. (Running through August 3)
