Iiiit’s Wednesday! Halfway through another slog of a workweek. Unless you work a retail/freelance schedule, in which case maybe it’s your weekend or you haven’t worked all week. Whatever the status of your week is, the one thing that’s inarguable is that there are some great things you can find to do tonight on our events calendar.

BEER GEEK TRIVIA
Think you know beer better than every other drunk in the borough? Prove it tonight at the Beerded Ladies’ Beer Geek Trivia. Win and you get glory AND Rockaway Brewing Company Swag, which is like glory you can wear.
8pm, Glorietta Baldy, 502 Franklin Avenue, Bed-Stuy, FREE

SUMMERSCREEN PRESENTS: CLUELESS
Hey, it’s a movie from the 90s that isn’t only good through a cloudy haze of nostalgia. So sit outside and watch the adventures of  Cher Horowtiz, a modern-day Emma, as she deals with guys, friends and the challenge of snagging a driver’s license. Not on the docket: A music lineup put together by Todd P.
6pm, McCarren Park, corner of Bedford and North 12th Street, Williamsburg, FREE

NOT QUITE MIDNIGHT ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY SHOW
Why watch a late night show on TV or Hulu, considering their are commercials? Instead, check out Not Quite Midnight, which is like a late night show but live and in person and also not actually on late at night. Tonight, the hosts will be talking to some of their favorite comics (including the Macaulay Culkin Show’s Brett Davis), who will do some jokes and also talk about their joke process. So you can laugh AND learn.
8pm, Littlefield, 622 Degraw Street, $8

HAVING A WHISKEY COKE WITH YOU FOUR YEAR ANNIVERSARY SHOW
Well, looks like everyone’s having birthdays. Or at least these two shows are. Having A Whiskey Coke With You is the storytelling show at Freddy’s, and since they’ve able to keep their weirdness alive despite their Barclays-related relocation, we bet you’ll hear some weird stories tonight.
8pm, Freddy’s Bar, 627 Fifth Avenue, Park Slope, FREE

BIG FREEDIA: GOD SAVE THE QUEEN DIVA
Big Freedia is one of those performers so compelling that you always want to know more about her. Good thing she wrote about her life as a twerking sissy and all that entails, huh? And good thing she’s bringing that book tour to Brooklyn, huh? All we know is that if her book appearance is half as fun as her musical appearances, you’re in for a trip. And if it’s 100% as fun as her musical appearances, it’ll be complete fucking chaos (in a good way).
7pm, powerHouse Arena, 37 Main Street, DUMBO, FREE
