10 things to do this weekend


1. Broad Ripple Brewpub's 25th Anniversary Celebration

Nov. 14, 3 p.m. Heyo! Happy birthday to the Brew Pub, a.k.a. NUVO Newsweekly North Bureau. Yes, we chaps and chappettes at NUVO have enjoyed many a pint both on and off the clock at this fine establishment, and we’re happy to celebrate with them on Saturday for 25 years of deliciousness. The Upright Willies and Gypsy Moonshine will play; plus, they’re setting up lots of cool stuff for kiddos to do, special beers on tap for the celebration, and giving away money from the purchase of their four standard house beers to different non-profit orgs, like IndyCog, Move to ACT, BRVA and United Christmas Service. Fun!
