Lights keeps going out

I have a few outlets and a microwave that keep going out and back on.
It comes and goes but not in a consistent pattern. It does occur mostly at night. It appears to be coming from one breaker (the breaker does not pop).
Where should I start?

To add to what Bob said, I would check the most heavily used points on the circuit first, ie the microwave receptacle or a lighting switch.

By checking the connections in all the junction boxes on the circuit. By ALL I mean at the lights, at the microwave receptacle, and at every other junction box on the circuit, even where there is no problem.
