Happening Sunday: Ladyfest Benefit Craft Fair, Golden Tarot Night, and more

-Ladyfest Benefit Craft Fair: Despite receiving loads of hate mail last year and initially planning not to recur, our Best Music Festival of 2014 is returning next month for another three days of live musical brilliance by women and feminist artists. Get yourself some handmade jewelry, apparel, prints, and more stuff by local craftspeople to ensure that this year’s Ladyfest is more Lady-y and festive than ever. Haters gonna hate. Noon-6 p.m., The Ottobar, 2549 N. Howard St., (410) 662-0069, theottobar.com, free. (Maura Callahan)

-Golden Tarot Night: Do you remember Miss Cleo, that psychic lady who was always on TV saying, “Call me now for a free tarot reading”? What happened to her? One second she was everywhere, force-feeding some mumbo jumbo about how she could tell you your fortune if you’d just give her a call, and the next she was gone. Turns out, the "free" tarot readings weren't really free, and she wasn't even really Jamaican. She was dropped from a suit against the Psychic Readers Network and thereafter stayed out of the public eye—until last year, when she was featured in a documentary about the history of telephone hotlines. The amount of attention and fame that she got because of her “tarot reading” started a trend and now everyone can be a psychic. All you need is a group of people, some tarot cards, and a little alcohol and you’re in business. Every third Sunday of the month, get your cards read while sipping "astrologically-synced" cocktails—whatever that means. 9:30 p.m., Golden West Cafe, 1105 W. 36th St., (410) 889-8891, goldenwestcafe.com.
