Comedy with ranch dressing?

Oh man, I was so excited about the Farm Hands event that I read about in Kathleen Purvis' I'll Bite. It's a food and beer fundraiser for regional farmers to fund their projects tonight at Triple C Brewery. Alas, it seems to be sold out and the website crashed while I was working on my post. However, there are still plenty of things to do today. Don't forget the Hornets play the Pacers tonight. See you in the streets...
