those not busy cooking, there's live music both nights, with Outlaw Jim
and the Whiskey Benders kicking it off on Saturday. Be sure to grab a
few pints from the Weston Brewing Company, including Little Lucy's Hot
Pepper Ale, which will require another beer to cool your mouth down.

Party In The Park comes to Swope Park tomorrow. Listen to free jazz and blues, including the Starlight Stars on the stage at Starlight, between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. For $5, enjoy all you can eat pancakes and sausages from Chris Cakes.
