1. Mama Tried Motorcycle Show and Flat Out Friday

The Mama Tried Motorcycle Show returns to Milwaukee this weekend, starting with Flat Out Friday, flat-track races on a Dr Pepper-slicked course, at 7 p.m. March 4 at Fiserv Forum. The Mama Tried shows, which connect motorcycles and builders to fans and riders, go on from 10 a.m. to midnight March 5 and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 6 in the Eagles Ballroom at the Rave, 2401 W. Wisconsin Ave. Tickets for Flat Out Friday start at $20; for the Mama Tried doings, they’re $18 for March 5 and $10 for March 6. (Note: Masks are still required inside Fiserv Forum.)

2. Family Hike at Havenwoods

Cap off this week’s sort-of warmup with a family hike in Havenwoods State Forest, 6141 N. Hopkins St., starting at 10 am. March 5. Led by a naturalist, hikers will be able to take in the forest and see if the improved temps have brought back any migratory birds or other critters. The hike starts at the nature center lobby. (Note: If the weather is not great, it’s possible the hike could be rescheduled. See the website for updates.) Info: dnr.wisconsin.gov/events/52771.
