Beer Week! A few highlights as Beer Week kicks off: Pueblo Vida celebrates with a spirit of friendliness and teamwork by releasing a brand new beer. The "Just Friends," a pale ale, is the product of a collaboration with Wren House Brewing. 4-10 p.m. Meanwhile, at downtown's Thunder Canyon, two of the biggest and most active local breweries are joining forces like the Power Rangers to release a delicious Pineapple Gose beer. What better way to start off the week than that? 5 p.m. to midnight. If you just can't get enough of those sweet, sweet carbs, consider pairing them together in two of their greatest forms: beer and pan dulce! (That's Mexican sweet bread). 1912 Brewing and Rancho Preciado are teaming up to give you some of the best of both worlds. You might never go back to pretzels to accompany your brews. 5 p.m. 2045 N Forbes Blvd, suite 105.

UA Presents: Straight Outta Philly.
Phildanco, the dance group founded by Joan Myers Brown in 1970, is bringing its innovative, traditional African American dance-influenced, barrier-breaking performance to Tucson. Rennie Harris Pure Movement, founded by Harris himself and expanding the boundaries of hip hop, will take the stage as well. Both dance institutions will fuse hip-hop and ballet for a show that will have you bopping and reflecting in equal parts. 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb 8. Centennial Hall, 1020 E. University Blvd. 8. $20 to $55+.

Drunk Drag Queen Storytellers. Sometimes you just need a night at the diner with some friends. Sometimes you just need to hear some stories from drunk people. Sometimes you just gotta hang out with your fave local drag queens. But did you know you could get all of these pleasures in one place? Head over to Welcome Diner to enjoy all of the above, plus $1 PBRs, $4 well drinks, half-off bottles of wine, and-of course-food to fuel you through the night. 10 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 8. Welcome Diner Tucson, 902 E. Broadway Blvd.
