Thursday: Art Marathon begins 

The third annual Art Marathon kicks off Thursday with a 6 p.m. commencement event at Moorhead’s Rourke Art Museum. This 26-stop scavenger hunt takes participants across Fargo-Moorhead on a hunt for art of all kinds, from visual to culinary to performance. Participation is free and accessible with the Art Marathon app available from the Android store. Keep up with the Art Marathon on Facebook. The hunt ends May 2.

Friday:  Theatre NDSU’s “Lysistrata” 

Aristophanes’ comedy “Lysistrata” gets a modern update from its 411 BC upbringing. This musical features over 30 performers across the campus and community in a show streaming with lights, color, sound and enough visuals to pack a punch for the retinas. Best of all, this ensemble-powered show is free for NDSU students, who can claim their tickets at the glass box performing arts office at Reineke 107. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. in Askanase Auditorium.

Saturday: F-M Symphony’s “Resurrection” 

The Fargo-Moorhead Symphony closes its 84th season’s Masterworks Series with “Resurrection,” the last stop around the globe in its “Embrace the World” theme. Featuring 160 voices of the F-M Chamber Chorale and NDSU Concert Choir, the symphony will perform Mahler Symphony No. 2 “Resurrection” at 7:30 p.m. in Festival Concert Hall. Tickets are $10 for students, but a rush rate is available for students arriving minutes before the performance.

Sunday: The Boiler Room

Open 9 a.m. to 1 a.m. Sunday, the Boiler Room is one of downtown Fargo’s latest, greatest haunts. The basement restaurant/bar has a heckuva menu for any time of day, and its drink options are delectable. This “modern twist on nostalgia” can be found under the Loretta Building at 210 Broadway N., accessible through the alley entrance.
