Wow, I forgot about the holiday this weekend. Well, if you, too, aren’t big into all those brunches out there or egg hunting, there’s still plenty for you to do, which involve rock gods, circus parties and Burt Reynolds’ sweet ‘stache.

Friday, April 10

Rachel Pally Sample Sale
Oooh, soft, pretty dresses for 50-80% off! Can’t really go wrong with a Rachel Pally sample sale. Fortunately, if you miss it this weekend, you can also catch it next weekend. Discounts will be on holiday and fall ’08 and pre-spring ’09 in dresses, tops, bottoms in both the Cashmere and White Label lines. Cash and credit cards only.

  • Friday 10am-7pm, Saturday 10am-6pm, Sunday 11am-5pm. 2301 E. 7th St., #C100, Downtown (map). (818) 512-9675.

Anvil! The Story of Anvil Opens in LA
This movie speaks to me on so many levels. A couple of childhood friends turned “demi-gods of Canadian metal” and their dream that they just can’t let go of. This not-a-mockumentary will be opening and screening at the Nuart with director Sacha Gervasi and Anvil members Steve Lips Kudlow, Robb Reiner and G5 in attendance.

  • Friday and Saturday, 7:30 and 9:45pm. Nuart Theatre, 11272 Santa Monica Boulevard, Los Angeles (map).

Cirque du So Lame at Royal/T
OK, talk of marionettes and a giant Easter bunny at this carnival-inspired event scare me. But I’d be into having my handwriting analyzed by a gypsy ($10 for one/$15 for two peeps) and taking pictures in the photobooth with vintage props from HBO’s Carnivale set. And maybe I can nosh on the gourmet cotton candy and cupcakes while I hide from the Easter bunny. BTW circus-inspired attire is encouraged at this crazy event. RSVP [at] with “Circus” in subject line.

  • $5. Royal-T, 8910 Washington Boulevard, Culver City (map). (310) 559-6300.

Sunday, April 12

The Burt Reynolds Dodgeball Tourney & Mustache Expo
This event is so surreal that it’s fabulous. Mustaches of all sizes, dodgeball and bunnies, what better way to celebrate Easter? If you want to join in the fun and play it’s $10 or $75 a team if you sign up before Friday ($100 after). There will be prizes for dodgeball winners as well as to those who win best stache, team concept and Burt’s doppelganger. BTW after party at the Silverlake Lounge!

  • 12pm. Bellevue Rec Center, 826 Lucile Avenue, Silver Lake (map).
