Magical Mondays at the Tavern. The show full of tricks paired with Tavern treats returns with acts from Austin's best sleight-of-hand magicians. Rolando Medina and headliner Nick Lewin perform at this Magical Monday installment, the city's only intimate magic show, that will also feature a touch of music and comedy from Little Jewford. Multi-screen video will enhance the two-hour experience from all angles. And as a member of the audience, you just might be involved in the proceedings. 7 pm. June 24. $30-$35. 922 W. 12th St.

Women's World Cup Watch Parties. Easy Tiger's Sixth Street and Linc locations are both hosting multiple watch parties throughout the FIFA Women’s World Cup with the Lady Birds of Austin Anthem. On Monday, there will be two matches and thus two watch parties (both at the Sixth Street beer garden) as part of the cup's knockout stage: one at 11 a.m., the other at 2 p.m. The events are friendly for all ages. There will be special guests dropping by, giveaways and maybe even some prizes. 709 E. Sixth St. Free.


"Ensoul." For Maura Schaffer, the dining room table is more than an ordinary domestic object. It is a symbol of all that is good about humanity. Functioning as a tool for sustenance, conversation and unification, the tables created for this exhibit are not only sculpted and painted by the artist but imbued with a soul. 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday through July 27. Dougherty Arts Center, 1110 Barton Springs Road.


"The Room" Movie Party. What could make Tommy Wiseau’s "Citizen Kane"-inspired film even more electrifying? Spoons and footballs flying through the air, of course. The Alamo Drafthouse will provide those and other surprises at the "Rocky Horror"-esque interactive show. You provide the resounding callbacks like “Spoon!” and “You're tearing me apart, Lisa!” Wiseau's "The Room" is equal parts melodrama, black comedy and psychosexual deconstruction of modern relationships. 10 p.m. June 24, 7:15 p.m. July 29. $5.25. The Alamo Ritz, 320 E. Sixth St.


Lacy Johnson at BookPeople. In 2014, Lacy Johnson was giving a reading from "The Other Side," her memoir of kidnapping and rape, when a woman asked her what she would like to happen to her rapist. That not-easy-to-answer question has led to "The Reckonings: Essays on Justice for the Twenty-First Century," a new collection that Johnson will talk about and sign at a book appearance at BookPeople. In the book, Johnson contemplates how our ideas about justice might go beyond vengeance and retribution. 7 p.m. June 24. Free. 603 N. Lamar Blvd.
