“Bottoms up” means such different things, depending on if you’re at Texas Bear Round Up or the North Texas Beer Festival, and the latter is what I’m talking about here. For the second time, the event brings everything from porters to stouts to pilsners and lagers to thirsty North Texans on Saturday at the fancy-schmancy new Irving Convention Center. I don’t know about you, but I like beer, especially in the summer, and on a weekend.

Tickets are 30 bucks for the full complement of drinks ($40 at the door) and designated drivers can come in for $20. Tickets can be bought here. If you see me there, raise a glass and buy me a beer.
