It's more Spring Break Ft. Lauderdale than Father's Day weekend Little Rock, but kids want to undress and grind in bubbles everywhere. On Saturday, Juanita's and Jester's Entertainment host a summertime bacchanal they're calling, simply, Foam Party
. The gist is pretty simple. The club pumps gallons of foamy bubbles onto its dance floor. People take off as many clothes as they can get away with--admission is cheaper if you come wearing a bathing suit--and dance and, um, stuff, under the cover mounds of foam. DJs Jared Lawler, Ewell and Sleepy Genius provide the soundtrack. The party starts at 9 p.m. Admission is $10 with a suit, $12 without. Those 18 and older will be admitted.
