IN A MATERIAL WORLD... This exhibit features costumes by Baltimore-based fiber artist Melissa Webb presented in a fantasy storybook setting and accompanied by related photographs. The opening reception, which includes appearances by garden gnomes and stilt-walkers, is at Gallery Imperato, 921 E. Fort Ave., from 7-10 p.m. The exhibit runs through Sept. 12. Go to galleryimperato.com.

ROMAN HOLIDAY: "Lost in Translation," "The Lord of the Rings," "The Darjeeling Limited." These are all films that make their locations seem so desirable that movie pilgrims travel to their real life counterparts. "Roman Holiday" is a great example of this phenomenon and watching it in the middle of Little Italy only enhances the setting you'll see on the screen. The Audrey Hepburn classic screens as part of the Little Italy Open Air Film Festival, High and Stiles streets. The film starts at 9 p.m., but come earlier for gelato and people-watching. The event is free. Go to littleitalymd.com.

2009 MARYLAND BBQ BASH: What can you add to a street festival to make it even better? Barbecue! This event takes over Bel Air Friday from 4-10 p.m. and Saturday noon to 10 p.m. with the Maryland State BBQ Championship contest, food vendors, live music and a farmers market. The festival is held at the State Courthouse parking lot at 108 S. Bond St. Admission is free. Go to mdbbq.com.

CLASSIC HIPSTER ANIMAL KARAOKE: There are no animals in sight, but you might come across an endangered hipster or two and you'll definitely spot some wannabe singers at karaoke night at Ottobar, 2549 N. Howard St., at 9 p.m. No cover, plus $2 drinks until 10 p.m., $3 after 10 p.m. Go to theottobar.com.
