Beer, My Dear 

Hold the hangover, please: While it's doubtful you'll see the Dixon Gallery and Gardens' outgoing executive director James Kamm shotgunning tall boys or society mavens holding each other's hair back as they take turns driving the porcelain bus in the ladies' room, there's something irresistible about the concept of a full-blown kegger at the Dixon. Of course, Art on Tap, now in its 11th year as a combination beer tasting/fund-raiser and recruitment tool, is hardly an Animal House fraternity party, but it is a great way to spend an evening. The big boys, like regional distributors A.S. Barboro, D. Canale, dbi, and Southwestern Distributors, as well as the local Boscos Squared and the Bluff City Brewers, will be on hand with samples of more than 150 varieties of domestics, imports, and microbrews. The Dempseys -- who recently performed for reformed frat boy George W. Bush -- will provide the appropriate soundtrack for the evening. Of course, you must be at least 21 to attend. For more information, go to www.Dixon.org.

Art on Tap, Friday, September 8th, 6-9 p.m., at the Dixon Gallery and Gardens, $20 in advance and $25 at the door
