Being cheap never means being boring in this city. To wit:

L.O.W.'s Outdoor BBQ & Pool Party @ Bambuddha Lounge (Friday)
We don't want to hear that it hasn't felt like summer this week. Come Friday, Look Out Weekend is bringing a bathing suit-able bash to Bambuddha Lounge with a free poolside party and BBQ (and open bar, for the first hour). Music from White Girl Lust, Swayzee, and Phillie Ocean. (4 p.m. until 10 p.m.)

Retro Dance Nights @ The Knockout (Friday and Saturday)
If you like DJs who move backward in time, this weekend you can choose your era for Knockout kicks. On Friday night, the bar gets its '60s fix with Teenage Dance Craze Party, featuring DJs Sergio Iglesias, Russell Quan, and DX the Funky Gran Pa (10 p.m., $3). On Saturday, things time travel forward three decades from Dance Craze into the '90s for Debaser, a club that celebrates the decade when college rock first became king and loggers had a hard time shopping for flannels in thirft stores. (Doors at 9 p.m. Free entry w/ flannel before 11; otherwise $5)

Pretty in Pink @ Dolores Park (Saturday)
Put the words "Molly Ringwald" and "Dolores Park" in the same sentence and you're gonna need to plant your picnic flag hours early. This week's free movie in the Mission is Pretty in Pink, the film that helped inspire decades of indie chick pouting. We'd advise bringing a bottle of rose for the occasion, of course. (8:30 p.m.)
