A weekend of spooky, boozy and arty Scout Picks.

Friday, 1/23
Signature Cocktail Class
7 – 9 p.m., $65
201 Somerville Ave.
Join Booze Époque’s skilled bartenders as they guide you through the steps for making your own signature cocktail. The class is great for newbies – they’ll teach you all of the fundamentals, from tools of the trade to bartending techniques, and you’ll also get a chance to taste premium spirits and mixers. Must be 21+ (of course). It’s the 11th hour, but you can still grab tickets on Booze Époque’s site.

Saturday, 1/24

Boston Horror Show
2 – 10 p.m., Tickets start at $10
Somerville Theatre

All Things Horror presents this jam-packed afternoon and evening of indie horror flicks. Catch screenings of “Spring,” “an astonishing genre-bender described as Richard Linklater meets H.P. Lovecraft,” the zany, satirical “Sins of Dracula” and the walking-corpse-laden thrills of “The Battery.” Get your tickets here.

Sunday, 1/25
SOS Talk #1
2 – 4 p.m., Free
