There is a lot going on this weekend here in the tri-state – If you plan to get your weekend started early, nearly every bar in town has karaoke and pool, and if they don’t, they have booze and food – you can’t miss.

If family activities are what you are looking for, the Frog Follies Classic Car Show is going on this weekend at the Vanderburgh County 4-H Center, Ellis Park has live thoroughbred racing through Sunday and the Evansville Otters are back in town with three games against the Road Warriors.

For all of you beer lovers out there – there is a craft beer tasting happening at The Winetree’s Eastside location on Saturday evening.

As always, there are plenty of local bands and acoustic artists performing in your favorite bars all over the area.

Have fun and be safe!
