Happening Saturday: Heavy Seas Beer & Bacon Festival, 'Female Pervert,' and more

-Heavy Seas Beer & Bacon Festival: As foodies come up with new ways to prepare and consume bacon and beer—there’s beer-candied bacon and bacon-flavored beer in the long list of bacon-wrapped objects and unique boozy potions—we feel all the more reason to celebrate America’s favorite food and drink. Fill up on a range of Heavy Seas brews alongside mountains of bacon and otherwise bacon-y food from local restaurants. Noon-4 p.m., Heavy Seas Beer, 4615 Hollins Ferry Road Suite B, (410) 247-7822, hsbeer.com, $59. (Maura Callahan)

-"Female Pervert": One of the best movies we've seen in the past few years, "Female Pervert" explodes the whole "manic pixie dream girl" nonsense that has dominated so many of the hipster-friendly, quirky fucking indie comedies over the past, well, at this point, 20 years. Here, the main character is Phoebe (Jennifer Kim), a sexually sophisticated and sexually aggressive video game designer—eventually a male co-worker files a sexual harassment suit against her—who pretty much confronts a series of dweeby dudes with the stuff she is into, which almost immediately creeps them out. It's a realistic, leisurely paced, very dark comedy about what happens when a woman acts as forthright about sex as men do all the time. It's kind of like if Natalie Portman in "Garden State" asked Zach Braff if she could shave his pubes or watch him pee instead of playing The Shins for him on their first encounter. There will be a Q&A with director Jiyoung Lee after the screening. 7 p.m., 2640 Space, 2640 St. Paul St., redemmas.org/2640, $5 suggested donation. (Brandon Soderberg)
