They never say that something is “selling like bran muffins,” now, do they? Wanna know why? Because hotcakes rule. Call ’em whatever you want: Pancakes, latkes, crêpes (if’n you must); they perk you up, soothe a savage hangover, remind you of your childhood, and attract houseguests from their slumber. Get all attracted out of your summer stupor with the International Pancake Film Festival this Saturday. Unit B and Chicago-based artist Damon Bishop host a host of hotcake cinema, all of ’em short form, and — we hope — every single one of them delicious. BYOButter. Because there will be very real, non-video pancakes served at 8. Free, 8-10:30pm Sat, Aug 7, Unit B, 500 Stieren, unitbgallery.com.
