Coming up this weekend in Boston: A hip reading series marks its first birthday, a Harvard Square institution celebrates its 60th, and you have multiple opportunities to play ping pong outdoors in the name of art. What’s that? You want to get drunk at the zoo? Sure, we can make that happen.

Get Artsy with Film, Theater, and Paintings in This Week’s Boston Events
Boston events
Commonwealth Shakespeare Company’s annual production of Shakespeare on the Common wrapped up last night, but you probably missed it even though you promised to go this year. That’s OK, there’s plenty more Shakespeare and other theatre on tap for this week for you to plan on going to but probably just go to the bar instead because how great are bars?

Fashion
You may know Nicoletta Lyons and the Big Pink Truck that brings her Lola's Urban Vintage fashion to the street. Yet, in addition to wining accolades as an accessories designer, Nicoletta is an accomplished visual artist. For the month of August, her wall sculptures and digital collages are showcased at a pop-up show at Harvard Square's Kulturez. The opening reception was a celebration of Nicoletta's art, bringing street wear, horned masks, and Narragansett beer together for a great party. Be sure to stop at The Garage to see the display, and pick up a fresh "Finisher" tank top for the last days of summer.

The Best Dressed Cosplayers of Boston Comic Con 2014
Photos
This past weekend, fans of all kinds showed up to the Seaport World Trade Center, many in their sartorial splendor, to celebrate Boston Comic Con 2014. Throughout the course of the event, which featured Sean Astin, Jason Momoa of "Game of Thrones," and Darryl "DMC" McDaniels among many more special guests, one of the best parts was catching a glimpse of our city's cosplayers (the art of building elaborate costumes to represent specific characters, for those who aren't familiar with the term). We were able to catch up with the creators of some of our favorite costumes and gain a dose of their inspiration behind them.

Photos: Riding With the MBTA-themed Boston Bike Party
Photos
On Friday night, August 8, hordes of spirited bikers took to Copley Square for an evening group ride around the city. As is custom with any of this summer's Boston Bike Parties, the gathering had a theme as well, with riders decked out in MBTA costumes of all shapes, sizes, and designs. We were there to send the spoked-out party animals on their merry way, but not before catching up with some of the party's craziest characters.

A Beginner’s Guide to Finding Your Nerdy Niche in Time for Boston Comic Con 2014

Captain America has a great butt, but we're still all pretty bummed that Laverne Cox isn't playing Wonder Woman, and Loki is a bad guy despite his sympathetic qualities (plus he definitely stars in a lot of pretty wild fanfiction that my editor won’t let me link to). Until recently, that was the bulk of what I knew about comics. My scope was quite obviously limited to whatever fandoms managed to spill across my Tumblr dashboard. More

Bard at the Bar, Garden Parties, and More Events This Week
Boston events
The Patriots play their first preseason game Thursday night, and I’ll be planted in front of the TV watching every second of undrafted rookies who will probably never make an NFL team, because football. But there’s plenty of not-sports activities on tap for this week, so see some live jazz, author talks or comedy so you won’t feel as bad about cheering for debilitating brain injuries.

Grown-Ups Get Young for a Night at Boston Children’s Museum
Fancy Life

How did you play when you were a child? Maybe you were one of the athletic kids, racing the other kids across the asphalt and inventing new games. Maybe you were curious and enterprising, concocting experiments with the condiments in your fridge.  Maybe you spent those endless days getting lost in a box of crayons, or in the pages of a comic book. No matter how we chose to play as tykes, the pure joy we felt in doing so is something most of us continue to chase well into our adult lives. It never gets easier to let go of our everyday burdens and enjoy a simple game — in fact, it only seems to get harder year by year.

This Weekend’s Boston Events: Parties, Posters, and Punk
Boston events
Just because it’s the middle of summer doesn’t mean your brain lacks the ability to process art. Maybe you just need a pint of cider to wash it down. Or the art is just rock band posters. Or, even better, the whole museum is roughly the size of a toaster oven so you can see everything during a “Sharknado 2” commercial break.
