On Saturday we can belly up to a long outdoor bar taking over blocks of the North Loop set up by Deschutes Brewing. The brewery has teamed up with our own Second Harvest Heartland to build a 400+ foot long bar down 2nd Ave. Along with the full gamut of delicious Deschutes, there will, of course, be plenty of food and local music. The pretty impressive musical lineup is headlined by jam band The Big Wu and includes Step Rockets, BBGun and Solid Gold. Deschutes’ chef Jeff and a couple of locals from Red Cow and Republic will be demonstrating and offering a perfectly paired menu. Also, all beer proceeds go to Second Harvest Heartland. Here’s to drinking beer outside until we can’t anymore! Saturday. 2-10. Free. —Jillian Finkelson
