A couple of things you need to know about Saturday’s Festival of the Lost Township. Though Crane Brewing is hosting the Labor Day–weekend beer festival, the Raytown brewery won’t be pouring its beer. (Crane received federal approval of its brewer’s notice too late to pour.) And the fest won’t be taking place at the still-under-construction brewery but at E. 62nd St. and Raytown Rd., in Raytown. There are plenty of reasons to go, including an all-star lineup of chefs (Celina Tio, Michael Corvino, Howard Hanna, Ryan Brazeal, among them) and, of course, lots of good beer (4 Hands, Firestone Walker, Jolly Pumpkin and many more). VIP tickets cost $100 and GA is $35. Designated drivers get in free.
