Friday To-Do: Foamfest

If only

FOAMFEST
5:30 p.m., River Market Pavilions. $22-$30.

The four keys to maximizing your Foam Fest experience: Eat a big lunch, make sure you’re hydrated, recruit 10 friends and line up a sober bus. Then, for four hours, drink steadily and broadly, sampling more than 65 varieties of beer and wine, while head-nodding and, later, singing (slurring) along to local cover bands. All proceeds benefit the Arthritis Foundation. The music kicks off at 5:30 p.m. with Saline County’s most active blues act, the Mike Dollins Band. At 6:30 p.m., good-time cover band Crisis! plays a broad range of recognizable rock covers. Jam band Weakness for Blondes follows at 7:30, and local dance favorite Mr. Happy helps close down the event at 8:30. Just before the drink-a-thon ends, a people’s choice award will be presented to the favorite brew. If you’re in a group of 10 or more, admission is $22. Advance tickets are available at foamfest.org.
