Friday To-Do: Smoke on the Water

Mmmm ribs.

SMOKE ON THE WATER BBQ FEST
5 p.m., Clinton Presidential Center. Free.

Give it up to the Clinton Library for opening itself up to the people. First the motorcycle show, now a salute to something else all red-blooded Arkansans hold on high — sweet, delicious barbecue. This two-day, $50,000-purse event, billed as one of the richest sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbecue Society, is sure to bring in the grillers in droves. But also regular folks, like me, who just want to nose through all that sizzling and smoking and maybe beg off a taste or two. Then, there's those who'll be excited about cover band Crisis! (6 p.m.), Southern arena rockers .38 Special (7 p.m.) on Friday, and hillbilly family band Big Smith (2:30 p.m.), party band Tragikly White (5:35 p.m.) and Bon Jovi tribute act Bad Medicine (7:30 p.m.) on Saturday. The gates open at noon on Saturday.
