BEER CAMP THIS FRIDAY

Looking for weekend plans? Beer Camp is calling your name. Presented by the Hop Growers of America, Sierra Nevada’s annual extravaganza (the country’s largest craft beer festival), hosts events in eight U.S. cities this month,  landing in Gas Works Park this Friday, June 30. The festive event welcomes more than 90 local and national breweries in addition to some of the city’s best food trucks, musicians and entertainers.

Okay, okay, the official name of this event actually refers to it as a “round-up” but ehh. You say po-tay-to, I say po-tah-to. You say round-up, I say rodeo. I can see it now: a herd of food trucks grazing the Seattle streets when out of nowhere a starving Seattleite attempts to lasso one of them using an over-sized fork and only being thwarted by the latest in the Super Sonics NBA-decision distraction.
