La course capotée 2015

If you haven’t seen McCord Museum’s Italian fashion exhibition Eleganza, you have until Sept. 25, but you know how time flies — maybe today is the day to check it out. 690 Sherbrooke W., 10 a.m. –6 p.m., $20/$13 students (13–17)/$17 seniors

Scratch your itch for cynical ’90s nostalgia with a screening of the first season of Daria at l’Escogriffe, complete with pizza and popcorn, with a voluntary contribution going to support the Distortion psychedelic music festival. 4467 St-Denis, 5–10 p.m., voluntary contribution

Join Villeray gin joint le Pourvoyeur (on Jean-Talon Market) as they celebrate five years of killer cocktails with drink specials, freebies, music and more. Reservations recommended. 184 Jean-Talon E., 5 p.m., free entry

The sixth edition of Turbo Haus’s speaker series Turbo Talks invites guests Tom Devlin (Drawn & Quarterly), Chloe Lum and Yannick Desranleau (AIDS Wolf/Séripop) and Heather Lou (Closet Case Files) to talk about their experiences with quitting major endeavours in a conversation dubbed The Anatomy of a Quit. 5011 Notre-Dame W., 7:30 p.m., $5

Drag queens and LGBT health organization Rézo are the joint focus of day one of Pride Week: The evening begins with la Course Capotée, a Rézo-co-sponsored event that will be familiar to Fringe Fest regulars, wherein local businesses — each represented by a drag queen in stilettos — engage in a friendly obstacle-course race and condom-bagging competition (Ste-Catherine E. & Champlain, 6 p.m., free). Later on at Cabaret Mado, 25 drag queens will celebrate the 25th anniversary of Rézo with a festive benefit show (1115 Ste-Catherine E., 9 p.m., $10).
