Everyone loves an overflowing cup of creamy frozen yogurt—filled to the brim with candy, pieces of cereal and chunks of fruit. But when the price depends on the weight, sometimes less toppings is better. Well, you won’t have to worry about that with this fun Yogurtland event. The Irvine Market Place location will host a $5 unlimited cup event from 4 to 7 p.m. where you can enjoy any and all of the toppings you can fit. Grab an eight-ounce cup and get ready to pack it fuller than you ever have before. While they don’t allow refills, you won’t need one anyway.

Following a three-year hiatus, the local O.C. band made a comeback last spring with an album titled “To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere.” The show will also feature Manchester Orchestra, an indie rock band from Georgia.
