War horses, tiger moms, and more things to do this week

Happy Daylight Savings Time! Here’s some stuff to do with all this extra sunlight, instead of just waiting another hour until it’s dark and you can finally start drinking.

Monday, March 10 - Stage & Screen
Coolidge Corner Theatre’s film series pairs “Juan of the Dead” (about zombies overrunning Havana) and a discussion with the writer and director of Huntington Theatre Company’s “Becoming Cuba” (also about the country of Cuba, not Cuba Gooding’s one-man show about his childhood, because that would be titled “Growin’ Up Cuba”). (7 p.m., $8-10, all ages)
Monday, March 10 - Mass BikePike Kickoff
The Asgard’s kickoff party for the 2014 Mass BikePike tour features free appetizers, and you don’t even need to ride a bike anywhere yet if you don’t want to. (5:30 p.m., FREE, all ages)
Tuesday, March 11 - NT Live: “War Horse”
These live broadcasts from Britain’s National Theatre have been selling out way in advance, but there are still tickets available for the show about World War I’s most kick-ass horse. Or instead of going, just imagine someone with a Boston accent saying “War Horse” and laugh quietly to yourself. (7 p.m., $20, all ages)
Tuesday, March 11 - Amy Chua
The “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother” author stops by Harvard Book Store to discuss her new book about the three traits that determine success for cultural groups in America: a superiority complex, insecurity, and impulse control. The lack of impulse control always gets me. I’d probably be a senator by now if I didn’t always need to have one more beer. (7 p.m., FREE, all ages)
Wednesday, March 12 - Practice Opening Reception
The Nave Gallery’s ”Practice” exhibition showcases highly skilled, process-oriented and conceptual works that require a high degree of proficiency and commitment. I could probably make some pretty cool art if I tried. I’m just going to have one more beer first. (6 p.m., FREE, all ages)
Wednesday, March 12 - Spring Craftacular
The craft beer tasting at the Bella Luna in JP features eight local breweries pouring samples. There’s also a gourmet pizza buffet, because you obviously have high standards for drunk pizza and definitely never destroyed a whole pizza by yourself at Hi-Fi in Central Square at 2 a.m. (7 p.m., $20, 21+)
Wednesday, March 12 - Welcome Wednesdays
Mingle with new and longtime neighbors at District Hall on the waterfront. The monthly event features free food and a live mural painting by Artists for Humanity. (5 p.m., FREE, all ages)
Thursday, March 13 - Literary Jeopardy
Flex your literary know-how and enjoy free wine and beer at this benefit for 826 Boston at Porter Square Books. You always win at apartment Jeopardy. I mean, most of the time. Definitely when your one roommate has to work late. Either way you’re in the top three for sure. (7 p.m., $10 suggested donation, all ages)
