This sounds like fun: On Saturday night, from 5 to 10 p.m., the Irish Cultural Center will host the Bloomin' Beerfest, a Bloomsday party with beer tastings from Sonoran Brewing, Oak Creek Brewing, Rock Bottom Breweries, Copper Canyon Grill & Brewpub, and other members of the Arizona Craft Brewers Guild.

(Bloomsday is the Irish celebration named after the protagonist of James Joyces' Ulysses, Leopold Bloom, and is held every June 16, the date of the events in the legendary novel.)

Oceans Apart will perform live Irish tunes, and there will be readings from Ulysses thorughout the evening. Today's the last day to purchase $25 presale tickets from the Brewers' Guild (check out the above link to their site). Admission is $35 at the gate.
