What's going on this weekend?

Hashstravaganza is here!

You’ve waited the two long weeks to get to this point, but it’s finally here. Welcome to Hashstravaganza.

There are three events for this inaugural event, all beginning at the Howard Johnson, 1011 Veterans Parkway. It’s $20 for all three - $10 for Friday, and $5 each for Saturday and Sunday. Bring a change of clothes, some extra cash for eats and a willingness to run through the rain while singing.

First - 7:30 p.m. Friday for the “formal dress” run and pub crawl. Bring a suit or dress you don’t care getting a little dirty.

Second – 3:30 p.m. Saturday for the monster five mile hash. It’s a long one, but there will be four breaks where you can partake of water or, if you’re made of sterner stuff, beer.

Third – 9 a.m. Sunday for the hangover hash. Expect Bloody Marys and a short trail before winding the whole event down.

America's got top model idol talent

Face the truth: You're not good enough to be mocked by a panel of has-beens on national TV. But one of your friends is.

Local singer Jeremy McCall has advanced to the regional round of "America's Got Talent" auditions. His fans will wish him good luck Friday with a party at The Uptown Tap, 1024 Broadway. Fork over the $5 cover and mingle with a potential future celebrity. Don't forget to ask him if he's excited about meeting the Hoff.

Then, prepare for your next casting call by getting a makeover at ULTA in Columbus Park Crossing. The cosmetics superstore is hosting a spring beauty extravaganza, so it'll be easy to find someone willing to hide those dark circles under your eyes. Don't like the final result? Cause a scene by screaming in agony -- just what Tyra Banks wants.

Finally, end the weekend by watching "The Amazing Race" at 8 p.m. on CBS. Not only is this consistent Emmy winner entertaining -- it's also a perfect tutorial on how to make your fights reality TV-worthy.
