- Blue Moon Art Project @ the Moakley Courthouse: Beer can inspire people to do strange things — propose, sing karaoke to "Careless Whisper," or even sell real estate. Blue Moon, however, is betting on its beer to bring out your more creative side. Check out the finalists in the Blue Moon Art Project (artists were challenged to use various media to create a tribute to the sudsy stuff) and sip free samples at the Moakley Courthouse. Be sure to vote for your favorite piece; the winner will take home $2,500. 7-10 p.m.
- Alec Baldwin @ Boston Borders: This is a judgment-free zone so we won't mention the irony in Alec "I leave threatening messages on my daughter's phone" Baldwin writing a book on divorce advice. We won't question his qualifications. We might even be willing to put all this drama behind us, if and only if he signs our copy of "Promise to Ourselves," with a "Love, Jack Donaghy." Catch him Thursday at the downtown Borders. 6 p.m.
Saturday, September 27
- Missy Higgins @ Revere Beach: Instead of sleeping in Saturday, you could help mankind (and seagull-kind) by cleaning up Revere Beach. Starting at 9 a.m., volunteers will work to beautify the area. And at noon, Australian chanteuse Missy Higgins will reward do-gooders with her sweet, lyric-driven pop. Bonus: There will be free Clif bars. Obviously, you'll want to pack some protein before picking up trash. 9 a.m.-2 p.m.
