WeekendWatch: An extra hour for hockey, music and the Husky Hunt.

Unless you’ve signed up for the Husky Hunt — the epic 24-hour scavenger hunt through Boston that starts at 8 tonight and sends hundreds of students to every corner of the city and beyond — there’s a chance you’ve got some free time this weekend. And even if you’re completely swamped with homework or housework, the switch to Daylight Savings Time gives you one extra hour Saturday night, which would be a shame to waste.

Husky vs. Husky: Matthews Arena goes to the dogs tonight, when the women’s ice hockey team faces the UConn Huskies in a 7 p.m. matchup. The men’s team hosts Merrimack the following night, with the game starting at 7 p.m. Saturday in Matthews.

Band Beanpot: Months before the annual Beanpot Tournament, Northeastern is hosting bands from hockey rivals BU, BC and Harvard for a concert in Blackman Auditorium. The concert, to be held Sunday at 3 p.m., will feature musician and composer Brad Ellis, the guy who is always playing the piano on Glee. Tickets are $5 for students and $15 for general admission.

Breakfast Club: No, we’re not talking about the Brat Pack or Saturday detention. Instead, the Mission Hill Breakfast Club is an hour-long cleanup of the neighborhood followed by a free breakfast, courtesy of the Off Campus Student Services office.

Two households, no dialogue: If you’re looking for culture and have some extra cash to drop this weekend, consider checking out the Boston Ballet’s production of “Romeo and Juliet,” which, since 1962, has translated the timeless lines of William Shakespeare into dance. Performances started Thursday and run through next Sunday at the Opera House. Tickets start at $30.
