Perhaps you attended the Mercy Lounges Rock for Ovaries concert last night, and youre seeking a less estrogenated counterbalance. Perhaps youve recently sworn off vegetarianism and are ready to celebrate your new lifestyle with an evening of wild debauchery. Perhaps you dont like meat but love making stupid puns. Whatever your reason, The Basements fourth annual Sausagefest offers you a chance to get intimate with some big, juicy wieners. Or rather, not just wienersthe flyer promises sausages from around the world. But the evenings entertainment shouldnt be too cosmopolitan: It features a suitably all-American lineup of macho rock (Organ Thief, Hurts to Laugh, Los Sausages) and a beauty pageant (Miss Sausagefest will be crowned). Dogs will be cooked on an outdoor grill, and theyre free while they last. Admission is the affordable yet terrifying price of $6.66.
