Now you have plans for the weekend

You need plans. Fat City has a recycle bin full of listings. In this post, all our problems are solved.

Fat City tested it for you yesterday, but you can try the Schlafly Raspberry Hefeweizen for yourself — along with the Kolsch, Summer Lager, American IPA and Bourbon Imperial Stout — during a free walk-through tasting at Gomer’s South (9902 Holmes Road) tonight. Gary Briggs will be there pouring and answering questions from 4 to 6 p.m.

Rice ball or meat ball? What’s it going to be buddy? Festa Italiana kicks off tonight at Zona Rosa, with live Italian music in the beer garden. The free festival runs from 5 to 10 p.m. today, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

On Saturday, author Steven Raichlen stops at the Barnes and Noble in Zona Rosa at 1 p.m. to discuss his new book, Planet Barbecue.
