The rowdiest night of any craft beer fueled week in this city?  Wednesday night at Idle Hands.  They pick a brewery, a bourbon and some fast and furious heavy metal.  Add you and some tater tots (for free, or for a very modest price, a decadently delicious burger from That Burger upstairs) and you have yourself one hell of an evening.  Did we also mention it's educational?  They walk you through the bourbon and the beer.  Go out and learn something.
