This week’s suggestions include catching the NCAA tournament, celebrating National Corndog Day, watching “Paul” or another new movie and more.

The big movies opening this week are “Paul,” an R-rated alien comedy starring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Seth Rogen (as the voice of the alien); the PG-13 thriller “Limitless,” starring Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro; and “The Lincoln Lawyer,” R, starring Matthew McConaughey and Marisa Tomei.

The NCAA tournament is in full swing, and a host of games are being played Friday and this weekend. Head to your local sports bar, or organize a gathering of your own to watch March Madness.

Saturday is National Corndog Day, so head to your favorite hot dog joint and celebrate corn dogs by gobbling a few. You could also make your own corndogs – just Google “corndog recipe” and find your favorite. And if you have a favorite place in town to get corndogs, let us know!

St. Patrick’s Day was Thursday, but some places are still holding events for the Irish-themed holiday. You could hold your own St. Paddy’s party as well – just don’t forget to schedule around the college basketball games. For the record, the Fighting Irish – Notre Dame – play Friday afternoon, and if they win, they play Sunday.

Sunday is the first day of spring, which also means it’s World Storytelling Day. The holiday is designed to keep the art of oral storytelling alive, and libraries and bookstores near you may be holding special events. Check the newspaper for listings, or call the library for more information.
