It's our time down here — in Southtown. Freetail Taproom is hosting a free screening The Goonies, otherwise known as every 80's child's adventure fantasy realized in cinematic form, in which a group of plucky, outcast kids go on the hunt for a pirate treasure in order to stave off the looming foreclosures of their parent's home. You know, kids stuff. Rocky road? Yes, of course there will be scoops of the ice cream flavor when you buy a pint, plus plenty of Baby Ruth candy bars. Free, 8:30pm Thursday, Freetail Taproom, 2000 S. Presa St., facebook.com
