Futurama series finale The first time Futurama was canceled (by Fox in 2003), it was eventually revived thanks to fan interest, but this time looks to be the true end of the road for the weird, goofy sci-fi cartoon from Simpsons creator Matt Groening. Say farewell to Fry, Bender, Leela and the rest. September 4, 10 p.m., Comedy Central.


Las Vegas 51s Summer unofficially ends this weekend, and so does the 51s’ 2013 season, with a four-game homestand against Tucson. August 30 & September 1, 7 p.m.; September 2, noon; $10-$20.; Cashman Field.

Lee Canyon Mountain Fest Dust off the hiking boots and head to the mountains for a day of music (Rusty Maples, Same Sex Mary, To the Moon), barbecue and boozy libations from Ballast Point and Templeton Rye Whiskey. Nothing says Labor Day Weekend like day drinking at high altitude. August 31, 1-6 p.m., $10-$15, Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort.


Black Sabbath Ozzy isn’t very frightening these days, but we’re guessing when he reunites with Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler to play the music that helped birth heavy metal, he’ll scare up some dark magic nonetheless. With Andrew W.K., September 1, 7:30 p.m., $40-$130, MGM Grand Garden Arena.


Bar Bites at Milos The new Meze menu at Estiatorio Milos is pretty much all-day happy hour, fresh Mediterranean-influenced bites like salmon tartare, lamb souvlaki, Greek botarga (grey mullet), taramosalata or tzatziki dips and the famous fried eggplant, all for under $9. Cosmopolitan, hours vary, 877-893-2003.


Art of Beer Fest Avoid the chaos of Labor Day on the Strip and venture Downtown for this first-year fest at Arts Factory’s Bar+Bistro patio, with samplings from breweries like Warsteiner, Squatters and Rogue, along with affordable bites. August 30, 6–10 p.m; August 31, 2–10 p.m; $25.
