The information about Saturday's 4th annual Buzz-B-Q in this week's To-Do List was inadvertently (cough), carelessly, lifted from a past event. As printed, the event does begin at 11 a.m., does take place at the North Shore Riverwalk and does feature two divisions of barbecue competitors, BUT it costs $5 (children under 12 free) and features a completely different musical line-up than printed: Brittany Conine, Ryan Couron, Steve Shankles, Mr. Meaner and Jeff Coleman and the Feeders.

All the Buzz dudes—Tommy Smith, David Bazzel, Justin Acri, Pat Bradley and Joe Franklin will be on hand to host and emcee the event, which benefits North Little Rock Firefighters Local 35 Fallen Firefighters Memorial Fund.

There'll be a a Family Fun Zone with a rock climbing wall, super slide, obstacle course, the Twisters Football Toss, 3D miniature golf and a hunting simulator.

Plus, for grown folks, age 21 and up, the "Buzzeritaville" area features T's Tunes karaoke, pool tables, TVs to watch the Preakness and Stinky Gringo margaritas.

See the full news release below. And listen later as Justin and Pat ridicule me as I try to apologize to Buzz nation. LITTLE ROCK, AR.
