SCOUT PICKS: 12/19/14 – 12/21/14

Holidays got ya stressed? Cold weather got ya dreading the outdoors? Too bad! Slap on those winter boots and trek out to one of these weekend Scout Picks.

Friday, 11/19
“The Other”
7:30 p.m., Free
Center for Arabic Culture
191 Highland Ave.
Are you a foreign film fanatic? You won’t want to miss out on this screening of Egyptian director Youssef Chahine’s “The Other.” A featured film at the 1999 Cannes Film Festival, the movie explores power and corruption in the Egyptian business community and stars Nabila Ebeid and Mahmoud Hemida.

Saturday, 11/20
ComedyCazi‘s Gritty Christmas Reboot
8 p.m., $8 in advance, $10 at the door
407 Highland Ave.
After reading the description for ComedyCazi, we’re not sure that we have anything we can add except that you won’t want to miss this. From the event page: “Born of a love for comic books, Saturday-morning cartoons and live theater, each ComedyCazi show features original comedies, recurring characters, and action-packed improv that all pay tribute to that unforgettable, violent children’s programming that totally had no lasting effects!” See what we mean?

Sunday, 11/21
Sunday brunch
10 a.m. – 2 p.m., No cover
Olde Magoun’s Saloon
518 Medford St.
Come Sunday, those who celebrate Christmas will probably be feeling either supremely stressed because they haven’t gotten enough of their shopping done or supremely satisfied because they’ve checked off everyone on their list. Regardless of which category you fall into, one thing is for certain: you deserve to treat yourself to some brunch. Just do it!
