Trust Us: Weezer, the Wayans Brothers and other stuff to do this week

The Good Life: Weezer plays the Cosmo pool Saturday night.


Weezer No matter how many times we’ve seen Rivers and the gang, it always makes for a fun night out. So practice those flying Ws and pray for lots of Pinkerton. With Hunter Hunted, July 27, 8 p.m., $50, Cosmopolitan’s Boulevard Pool.

Union 13 Dig through your high-school CDs and crank up the volume to get ready for these hardcore punk veterans. A few beers probably wouldn’t hurt, either. With Lambs to Lions, IDFI, Last Rights, The Quitters, July 26, 9 p.m., $7-$10, Beauty Bar.


Aces & Ales’ 4th Anniversary Party One of the Valley’s best bars (which opened a second location this year) celebrates with $4 drafts and $6 barbecue plates. So go raise a birthday toast! July 27, 7 p.m., 3740 S. Nellis Blvd.

God Save the Queen If you missed out on the free pints at Gordon Ramsay’s Pub & Grill upon the announcement of the royal baby’s birth, drown your sorrows in this cocktail made from Beefeater Gin, Dubonnet Rouge, St-Germain, bitters and grapefruit. Her grandson may be swaddled in blue, but the Queen Mum’s namesake drink is all about pink. $15, Caesars Palace.


Cochinillo Roast Jaleo chef Luis Montesinos roasts a whole pig every Sunday starting at 4 p.m., and you can eat it. A plate of cochinillo, served family style, costs $35, including crispy skin, pan con tomate, mojo verde and aioli sauce. The entire Jaleo menu is also available, so feast at will. Cosmopolitan.


The Wayans Brothers Sure, White Chicks and Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood were terrible, but we know Shawn and Marlon had you laughing anyway. Experience them live at the Pearl. July 27, 8 p.m., $40-$70.


Soggy Jog What’s better than a 5k? How about a 1-mile fun run that includes Wet ’n’ Wild’s water slides and a trip down the lazy river? Soggy sounds like an understatement. July 27, 8 a.m., $70 includes park admission, soggyjog.com.
