3. Bet on a winner. The Kentucky Derby happens in Louisville, Kentucky, this Saturday. For those of us who can't be there to smell the horseshit, gerbils will race at Tower Tavern during the 2 to 7 p.m. Derby Day festivities.
5. Have a history lesson. Sunday is Founders Day at the Kansas City Museum, which means the usual lessons about the local past coincide with family friendly games, entertainment and cookies.
6. Have beer and pizza with Pitch food blogger Jonathan Bender.
He'll be at Waldo Pizza's Tap
Room on Sunday from 5 to 7 p.m. to talk about his new book LEGO:
A Love Story.
