FOAM FEST6 p.m., River Market Pavilions. $25 adv., $30 at door.
If only the folks who put on the Foam Party at Juanita's last weekend, where scantily clad youths grinded in a sea of soap bubbles, and those who organize Foam Fest, where people of all ages above 21 sample dozens of varieties of beers, could get together, then we'd be on to something. Until then, the Foam Fest will have to lean on this proposition: For $22 to $30 (if you're part of a group of 10, you get in for $22), you'll get three hours to drink yourself silly. And broadly. There'll be more than 65 varieties of beer and wine from all around the world. Plus, there's music to dance badly and slur along to, from Fayetteville folk rockers the Sarah Hughes Band
(6 p.m.) and Little Rock dance band standby Mr. Happy
(7:15). Just before the drink-a-thon wraps up, a people's choice award will be presented to the favorite brew. All proceeds benefit the Arthritis Foundation. Advance tickets are available at foamfest.org
