Let’s face it: Red Derby is a dive bar, but only in the best sense of the term. It’s a fun place to hang out and have a burger and a beer (served only in cans) in an unpretentious space. The extensive brew list features many blue-collar-turned-cool-again brands like Natty Boh and Schlitz, along with foreign suds and craft beers from around the country. Enjoy ample rooftop seating or stay inside and play arcade or board games while you wait for your order to come up. The menu is filled with gooey comfort foods like quesadillas, burgers and po’ boy sandwiches, and a weekend brunch menu features the usual basics, plus make-your-own mimosas. For all its popularity, Red Derby remains cash only, though your hard-earned $20 goes a long way. Drinks are cheap, especially during happy hour, and only a handful of menu items cost more than ten bucks.

Now in its 21st year, the AFI Latin American Film Festival celebrates hitting the drinking age by hosting an array of cinematic achievements by Latin American filmmakers, with this year’s slate of films extending to motion pictures from Spain and Portugal. The 2010 lineup includes Revolution, a collection of short films from 10 Mexican moviemakers, including actors Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, that explores the themes of the Mexican Revolution on its 100th anniversary. Those with an off-kilter sense of humor or an unhealthy love for con-artistry can check out Uruguay’s Bad Day to Go Fishing, which follows a wrestler and his manager as they navigate through South America, putting on fake exhibitions of strength. Venezuela’s Story of a Day enthralls its viewers by poetically chronicling the numerous parties, feasts, and chores in a Venezuelan village, and Honduras’s Love and Beans comically details marital mysteries and draws attention to the plight of beans everywhere. Check the full lineup to see how the festival's schedule of silver-screen offerings matches up to your own sci-fi screenplay about the 1993 Buffalo Bills.
