Now you have plans for the weekend

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

The festival circuit continues and there’s still something for everybody. Beer lovers, meat lovers, and vegetarians — get ready to overeat.

It’s not October, but that doesn’t mean your lederhosen can’t make an appearance at Oktoberfest. Learn how to properly slide a beer down a bar or go to beer school at Worlds of Fun’s annual German Festival the next two weekends. The two beer gardens are open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday.

As long as you’re learning how to drink beer, you might as well improve your skills on the grill, too — you’ll need to know how to cook sausages for when your home version of Oktoberfest rolls around. At their annual open house, Full Boar 2009, the folks at the Harley-Davidson Factory gives free factory tours and Backyard Bash will be on hand to lead barbecue prep demonstrations.

Even with your new grilling abilities, you won’t be a match for the cooks at the 48th Annual Greek Food Festival. Gyros abound at the Greek Orthodox Church of the Annunciation (120th and Wornall). The event runs Friday (6 to 10 p.m.), Saturday (noon to 10 p.m.), and Sunday (noon to 6 p.m.). Admission is free.
