For all of you sims who decided to use your ReNuYuSenso Orb when your aspiration was too low…  Today is national Grilled Cheese Day.  I’ll certainly be breaking out my grilled cheese maker today. – Danny Fisher / Editor-in-Chief

Ignore your responsibilities and go look at the furry critters down at the Fairbanks North Star Borough Animal Control. They normally have a number of cats and dogs needing homes, so if you’re thinking of a new pet please consider adopting an adult animal from the shelter instead of buying from a breeder or getting a puppy or kitten. Lots of them are really sweet and deserve a chance at a loving home. Like my new cat Jazz! She’s basically the nicest cat I’ve ever met and an excellent lap warmer. Look me up and shoot me a message on Facebook if you want to see photos of her! She’s fluffy and soft and has giant eyes and little paws. – Molly Putman / Layout Editor

Hardcore Henry is you one stop shop for mindless violence in a movie. Head on down to the theater on Airport Way at 7:50 p.m. This movie is a first of its kind where it is filmed entirely from the first person view. Hardcore Henry is directed by Ilya Naishuller, and witness as Naishuller brings you behind the eye camera as you follow Henry, your voiceless hero, as he fights through hordes on enemies to go save his wife. – Aaron Walling / Advertising Manager

Fit people will probably be participating in the Beat Beethoven 5K today from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. For the rest of us, the 11th Annual Taste of Alaska Beer Festival is that evening at the UAF Pub from 6 to 10 p.m. It’s $35 bucks at the door, which nets you a glass, twenty tastes, and all kinds of delicious appetizers. Really, the two aren’t mutually exclusive, and there’s plenty of time for runners to get to the tasting by way of a shower at home. But given my hideous bridge troll body, I’m much more likely to participate in the latter, even though I would probably benefit more from participating in the former. – Spencer Tordoff / Web Editor

Once Upon a Mattress is showing at 4 p.m. at Hering Auditorium.  Inspired by Hans Christian Anderson’s fairytales, the play is supposed to be a musical comedy. Having worked on comedic musicals in the past both as cast and crew, I can say when you’re the one performing, it isn’t always that musical or comedic.  But being in the audience is much nicer.  Since it isn’t canned food night, depending on how good you wants your seats to be, tickets are $15-$30.  If you want to reserve seats, it’s $35, so get on it. – Kyrie Long / Copy Editor

The spring semester is almost over and summer is around the corner. Take a breather and relish in the silliness that today is National Velociraptor Awareness Day. For those of you who are Jurrassic Park movie fans, the Velociraptor played a large role in many of the films. But, this dino was portrayed inaccurately in the films. Apparently the Velociraptor was more like the size of a turkey than a human and possibly even had feathers. The first known fossil of this dino was discovered back in 1922 in Mongolian Gobi Desert. Be sure to break out your best dinosaur costume today and go to every class in it.-Sarah Manriquez / Photo Editor
