This is the weekend of festival fun in Lafayette-West Lafayette!  On Saturday, August 25, from noon to 4pm, come out to taste an assortment of ales and lagers from 30 Indiana Breweries during the 1st Annual Beers Across the Wabash.  D&R Market, Lafayette Optimist Club, Sgt. Preston's and Big Cheese will be providing delicious food to partake while sipping your beer.  There will be seminars featuring beer and chocolate and cheese that will be educational and entertaining.  Visitors can enjoy the beautiful view of the Wabash River as they stroll across the John T. Myers Pedestrian Bridge. After tasting the diverse beer selections, walk down to 5th and Main Street, downtown Lafayette, for the Uptown Jazz & Blues Festival taking place from 4pm to midnight. There will be three stages of hot jazz and cool blues along with delicious tastings from local eateries.  Not only can you rock to the music, but folks usually cannot help but sway and dance to the tunes.  (My husband had to pull me off the dance floor two years ago!)
