Here’s a look at this weekend's best culinary happenings:

A Barrel Aged Evening at Saint Arnold Brewery

Friday, 7 to 10 p.m.
2000 Lyons

Saint Arnold invites guests to its Beer Hall and Investors Pub for an evening of all things barrel aged. Beer nerds will get to sample a wide range of barrel aged beers from the cellar and a couple of exclusive first tastes, straight from the barrel they were aged in (plus its regular beer lineup and a heavy appetizer buffet). Tickets are $65 and include a sample of each of the barrel aged beers, beer from the regular lineup, heavy appetizer buffet, a tour of the Barrel Room and a Barrel Room taster glass to take home.

80s Movie Night at City Acre Brewing

Friday, 8 p.m.

City Acre Brewing is kicking off a new series, hosting a free big-screen movie night of a different ‘80s comedy classic (including a themed menu) on the last Friday of every month (now through June, 8 p.m.). This month, guests are invited to get a jump-start on Valentine’s Day with a screening of When Harry Met Sally, complete with apple pie and comforting paprikash.

Ice Cream for Breakfast Day at Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams

Saturday, 8 a.m. to noon
375 West 19th

For its Ice Cream for Breakfast Day event, the new Heights location of this Ohio-born ice cream shop will be scooping Cinnamon Roll ice cream — sweet cream cheese ice cream with dark caramel sauce, pastry and a whole lot of cinnamon; and dishing out Coffee Floats, all for a great cause. On Saturday morning, 100 percent of the profits from Jeni’s scoop shop sales (and from the Ice Cream for Breakfast Day online collections) will be donated to DoSomething.org, a digital platform powering offline action for young people interested in creating social change.

Super Boil Saturday at The Brass Tap

Saturday, 1 to 5 p.m.
922 Holman

The Mid-Main pub and patio will be kicking off Super Bowl Weekend with its Super Boil Saturday.
