6:45 p.m. 301 E. Seventh St. $20.

School’s back in session, the days are getting shorter and Labor Day is quickly approaching – as is fall.

Help raise money for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer by testing your drinking game skills in a “barcathalon.” Connolly’s will host a beer pong and cornhole tournament, Buckhead Saloon will run the Flip Cup portion of the evening, and awards will be handed out at Howl at the Moon. A prize also goes to the “breast”-dressed team, so get creative.

The nightlife Web site celebrates its ninth birthday of snapping photos of inebriated partygoers with – what else? – a party. Stop by Alley Cat and enjoy free Bud Light drafts on’s tab (while supplies last) and watch out for the cameras.

That Lake Norman Cruise for $20 sounds like a deal.

Town Tavern, another lame bar! Especially designed and ran by a bunch of muppets(BMG). My guess they will hire bartenders that have already tended in about 90% of the downtown bars. Such a regurgitated product.
