Come celebrate the life and work of Hunter S. Thompson at The Monkey Wrench Oct. 16. They’re calling it the First Annual Gonzo Fest, although Flying Dog Brewery has been doing them for a few years now. But it’s the first in Louisville, damn it, and that’s what matters, because here’s where it should be, right? Twelve hours of music, art, spoken word and booze is a day worthy of the man himself. (If press gets in free if I promise to cover it as I imbibe?). Expect a Hunter look-a-like contest, the unveiling of a Hunter mural and lots of Flying brews. —DM
