Three Things To Do This Weekend That You Don’t Know About – But Should.

Friday Evening
Art: Art Collective Rock Paper Scissors on Telegraph holds a closing for its photography exhibit “Don’t Fail Me Now” on Friday evening. The show is “a photographic tribute to the things that carry us through the day.” In addition to pics and writings from more than 20 photographers, someone will be on hand to play records. “We’ll just be hanging out listening to music,” says RPS’ Mark.

Where: Rock Paper Scissors, 2278 Telegraph Avenue, 510-238-9171
When: Friday, August 25, 6 p.m.
How Much: Free

Saturday Night
Comedy: So what if you missed the first two rounds and the semi-finals? It’s not too late to see the grand finale of the First Annual East Bay Urban Comedy Competition Saturday night at Connolly’s Lounge on Telegraph. To record companies and Madison Avenue, urban means black, but to Nelson Martini, the stand-up comedian who organized the competition, urban means “you can relate to everyone.” Or at least make fun of them.

Where: Connolly’s Lounge, 4822 Telegraph Avenue, 510-654-1423
When: Saturday, August 26, 8 p.m.
How Much: $5

Sunday Morning
Food/Music: Even if all the profits didn’t go to the coolest youth center in the Bay Area, it would still be a good deal. For $16 you can feast on an all-you-can-eat spread of soul food and breakfast fixings Sunday at Youth UpRising on MacArthur Boulevard in East Oakland.

Where: Youth UpRising, 8711 MacArthur Boulevard, 510-777-9909
When: Sunday, August 27, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
How Much: $16 for adults, $8.50 for kids 12 and under
