Ever wonder what it would be like to tour Willy Wonka's factory? I imagine it's a little like Explora's Science of Beer night on Friday, Feb. 24. Maybe after the beer tasting, you'll suddenly be lifted off the ground. Or maybe you'll just be tipsy. Either way, it's guaranteed to be a good time. For this 21 and over event, you get free run of the whole museum plus beer-related experiments and Marble Brewery tastings. Move over Charlie Bucket, there's a new sheriff in town. Just beware of the chocolate river and stick to the bubble table, and you should make it out in one piece. Tickets are $8 for Explora members, $10 for non-members. (Taylor Grabowsky)
Leading experts in the fields of Catholic theology, philosophy and ethics are interviewed for the documentary The Secret History of Sex, Choice and Catholics—which attempts to root out the truth behind the Catholic hierarchy's opposition to contraception, abortion, and other reproductive and sexual health issues beginning at 6pm. A free screening of the film will be shown at Harwood Art Center, sponsored by Catholics for Choice, ACLU of New Mexico and the NM Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, will be followed by a discussion.

It's still pre-Lent and pre-apocalypse, so get your party outfit on and head over to Aliento: Carnaval 2017 this Friday, Feb. 24, and Saturday, Feb. 25, beginning at 7:30pm. The National Hispanic Cultural Center's Albuquerque Journal Theatre will be transformed into a television dance show of the past with musical acts from PANdemonium and the Odara Dance Ensemble. Celebrate and partake in the Carnival traditions of Cuba, Trinidad, Brazil and New Orleans. Unlike prior performances, the audience will be able to participate and join the show. Tickets only cost $17-$27, and are likely to sell out by the day of the show so get 'em while they're hot! Laissez les bons temps rouler! (Megan Reneau)
