Rot & Ruin Festival this Saturday in Liberty

Halloween is approaching fast and so begins my most anxiety filled time of year. How do I come up with a costume that is witty and relevant, but doesn't require me to spend time making it, doesn't cost much money, and doesn't offend anyone? Can I just wear my lederhosen again? Too soon? At least the Germans don't seem to mind my cultural appropriation anyways. Well, let's all hope for my sake (and everyone else's) that my wife comes up with something good for me, because I'm sure not going to.

Anyways, if you were looking for a Halloween party this year to show off your awesome (or not) costume, Rock and Run in Liberty is doing you a solid. They're putting on the Rot & Ruin Festival this Saturday, October 25 from 3p-10p next to their brewpub in Liberty. They've got a solid lineup of breweries, distilleries, and even a meadery. They've also got a costume contest for you. You can win prizes for costumes in three categories: Best overall Halloween costume, Best beer related costume, and Best Rocky Horror themed costume. Drunken transvestites from Transsexual, Transylvania?? I imagine the hardest part will be trying to find someone to give you ride home...

You can buy tickets through the event website. VIP tickets are $55, regular tickets are $40, and food vouchers are $5.
