Roanoke Doesn't Suck will be hosting the 3rd Annual Geek Mob: International Read Comics in Public Day at the O. Winston Link Museum tomorrow from 6-9 p.m. It's all about super heroes, with a special "Super Heroes at Home" photo collection and a movie called "Confessions of a Superhero," plus face painting, super hero cartoons, crafts, and live music with Another Roadside Attraction. Admission is discounted to $3 (or $2 with a canned food donation to benefit Southwest Virginia Second Harvest Food Bank).You can find more info on Facebook under "Things In Roanoke That Don't Suck" and "Geek Mob Roanoke."

How about Breakfast With The Animals tomorrow morning at Mill Mountain Zoo? Feel like "Snacking With Snakes?" Are you scared of snakes? Well, you'll start with a light breakfast, then learn all about them and why they are actually not so bad after all. Breakfast With the Animals: Snacking With Snakes is tomorrow morning starting at 8:30. Register online at

I have a handful of things at what they call "The Nice Price." Free! Tomorrow is International Homeless Animal Day at the Roanoke Valley SPCA. From noon until 4, just drop off one thing for an animal rescue group in the area and maybe walk out with a new member of the family. The Owl Prowl at Claytor Lake State Park is tomorrow night at 8:30. You've gotta wait until the owls are up. Learn all about one of the best nocturnal hunters on the planet, and wear some hiking shoes. Last one is Safety Day from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. tomorrow at The Virginia Museum of Transportation. It's the one-time-a-year for FREE admission to the museum, and if you have a new teen driver, this is a chance to let them try to text and drive where they're safe in a simulator. The Virginia Museum of Transportation will stay open after the event, free to the public until 5 p.m.

Enjoy the weekend, and hit me up with an event you'd like to spotlight on The Weekend Buzz.
