Londonist spent all of its money this week getting drunk at its 3rd birthday party. Hopefully, you were one of the many people who decided to join us. As a thank you, London On The Cheap is back (hurrah!) showing you what fun and fabulous free stuff you can entertain yourselves with next week:

Sunday: We had an extra hour today so you get an extra day of news from us. Out to Lunch is being recorded for BBC Radio 2 and it's free if you can get yourself down to The Soho Theatre this evening at 6.30. Short notice, yes, but how very spontaneous of you.

Monday: The George Tavern is a little out of the way for some and slips of the map a little. It's a shame as this late night venue has a regular music night, Jorge, tonight with Indie bands, rock and poetry from Screamer on the hill, Drookit Dogs and the John Clarke band. So go on, we dare you. Take a trip a little further out of town tonight.

Tuesday: Gaunabara is also three this week! Happy birthday! To celebrate, the Brazilian phenomenon is having a bit of a shin-dig. Expect Caipirinihas by the dozen and Capoeira dancers to keep you entertained. Expect to see us there too!

Wednesday: When free dance shows happen, we feel it's our duty to keep you posted as it seems to happen so rarely. Luckily, you can still catch Paul-André Fortier today as he dances his way down Liverpool Street. It's part of Dance Umbrella which we told you about a little while ago. We suggest you have a go yourself on the way home. One, two, step, pirouette...

Thursday: When free theatre goes by the title of 'I Kissed a Frog and it Gave me Herpes' we do feel strongly compelled to tell you about it. It's at the Comedy Pub on Oxendon Street and is getting rave reviews all over the place.

Friday: This won't be last we mention them, but it's fireworks time already. Tonight it's the turn of Clapham common. Go there and get a toffee apple first, then get ready for the ooohs and aaaaahs. Make sure you write 'Londonist' with your sparkler. Remember to wear gloves and be nice and considerate to your furry friends too. (Cats and dogs that is, not overly hairy people).

Saturday: We think it's time to get a bit of brisk walking done. The Shepherd's Bush Film Tour kicks of at the underground station at 14.00. You'll learn lots of stuff, we promise. It's free so you can splash out on takeaway hot chocolate if it's very chiily.

Sunday: Apparently, 'anything goes' at the Monkey Chews Sunday club. Expect lots of live music, comedy, sketches and even a little bit of storytelling. We can tell you're excited already...

Or, you could stay in and empty your inbox.

There's lots of stuff to do here, and lots of opening and closing times. Londonist thinks you should take a quick gander at the websites before you go for more information.
