If you saw 50 Shades of Grey over Valentine's weekend, you owe it to yourself to see Secretary, the steamier, more heartwarming bondage film. Maggie Gyllenhaal stars as Lee Holloway, a recently released mental patient, turned secretary who embarks on a BDSM relationship with her sadomasochistic employer, played by James Spader. $10.50, 7pm Tuesday, Alamo Drafthouse Park North, 618 N.W.Loop 410, 677-8500, drafthouse.com

Miss Neesie & Earfood Orchestra will provide the entertainment for The Cove's Fat Tuesday celebration, which doubles as a fundraiser for the St. Paul Lutheran Church Child Development Center. Get a head start on all that Lenten good behavior by supporting a good cause while you revel in the Mardi Gras debauchery — not that we're expecting any boob-baring hedonism at this Five Points ice house. There will, however, be a parade and a costume contest, and we're hearing that there will allegedly be gumbo for purchase. Free admission, 7:00pm Tuesday, The Cove, 606 W. Cypress, 227-2683. 

Tuesday, February 17 - Thursday, February 19
