  • Arkansas Shakespeare Thetre's Bard Ball 2013 is Saturday at Argenta Community Theater.

7 p.m. Argenta Community Theater. $75.

William Shakespeare was not only a genius writer, but also an actor, a double-whammy of a profession that — in my considerable experience with writers and actors — probably means he could drink an alcoholic polar bear right under the table. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Celebrating the connection between booze and Billy Shakes is Bard Ball 2013, a benefit in support of Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre. Up for grabs will be a Falstaff-worthy slate of food, live entertainment and suds, with Starving Artist Cafe supplying the grub and several local breweries, including Vino's, Diamond Bear and Marshall Brewing Co., filling the taps.

Would I were in an alehouse in North Little Rock! I would give all my fame for a pot of ale, and safety.
