You need plans. Fat City has a recycle bin full of listings. In this post, all our problems are solved.

Corn dogs, fried dough, food comas: It must almost be time for the Missouri State Fair. The annual gathering of livestock and live acts in Sedalia kicked off on Thursday and runs through Sunday, August 22.

The Mizzou Watermelon eating competition is at 2 p.m. tomorrow and Wine Tasting 101 ($5) presented by the Missouri Wine & Grape Board is at 4 p.m. Admission is $8. You can bring your own coolers, just not your own alcohol. 

Eat Pray Love

is out in theaters today. The movie adaptation of

Elizabeth Gilbert's memoir follows her as she eats and attempts to find

love in Italy, India and Indonesia. Track down some gelato for your

freezer at home. Trust us, you'll want it after seeing the movie.

Dionysus would be proud. The 15th annual Kansas City Festival of Wine and Food

returns Saturday, August 14, at the Overland Park Convention Center.

The American Heart Association benefit runs from 6 to 9 p.m. and offers

the chance to sample more than 300 wines. Tickets cost $75.

Beer pong should stay in college. But wine pong, that's for adults.

Learn how to play it at Jowler Creek Vineyard and Winery as it

celebrates its new wine-tasting room and production area. The grand opening

party at the Platte City winery goes from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday with wine pairings and discounts on

wine, plus prizes for the best pong players.

Don't fret, beer drinkers. You can still attend fancy parties. The Microbrew Festival is back at the Zona Rosa Town Square from 3 to 9 p.m. on Saturday. This is the second annual fundraiser for UNICO Kansas City.

Admission is $25 and gets you all the beer you can sample from a

4-ounce sampling glass.
