Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 10.23.08

.This Week's Calendar | Ongoing Calendar | Galleries | Music @ the Clubs

Deadline for Calendar and Art in the Galleries submissions are noon on Thursday, a week before the issue that covers your event. Send an e-mail with event, date, time, location and cost to attend to cal@eugeneweekly.com

Ah, fall. The air crisp, the apples tart, the hops in bloom, the leaves turned radiant orange and fallen into your gutter … and the return of the tastiest fungi this side of a moldy cheese wedge! Come early to this year’s Mushroom Festival at Mount Pisgah Arboretum as the parking is always scarce at this popular fall event. In addition to being a “bonanza for mushroom lovers,” according to event organizers ­ a bonanza that inludes a fungi collection with more than 350 specimens ­ you will get a chance to vote in multiple categories in the Scarecrow Contest (pictured left). A plant sale and delectable edibles and drinkables round out this munchy, musty mush-fest. See Sunday Calendar.

The difference between fresh hops and dried hops in beer brewing is like the difference between a mug of Ninkasi Total Domination IPA and a bottle of Coors Light. Unlike conventional beers, tasting a freshly hopped brew is a seasonal experience as the hops’ cone-shaped flower only blooms once a year. The fresh hops need to be trucked to the brewery right away, and the brewery needs to make the necessary adjustments to its equipment. Oregon Bounty and Oregon Brewers Guild sponsor a Fresh Hop Beer Tastival this week at Ninkasi Brewing Co.’s Van Buren Street brewery to give Oregonians a taste of this unique, seasonal brew. Organizers say the fresh hops will give the beers an earthiness “redolent with intense herbal, floral and citric aromas and a pleasing bitterness.” Cost is $5 for a souvenir mug and a buck a taste. See Saturday Calendar.

Halloween may be a week away, but there are already a ton of spooky activities lined up for kids and families this week. On Friday, enjoy a pumpkin-lit traipse at Nearby Nature’s Haunted Hike (pictured) at Alton Baker Park. It’s not “haunted,” exactly, but it will be a walk filled with oversized, costumed owls, bats, frogs, spiders and real life owls and vultures from the Cascades Raptor Center. Saturday morning wake up the beast in you at the Slocum Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine’s Monster Dash while at night be witness to a “Nightmare on 6th Street,” as the ZAPP Dancers freak out at the Hult Center. Your Monday and Tuesday can be creeped out by hopping onto the Haunted Hayride at Dorris Ranch. Don’t have human kids? No problem! Dress up your well-behaved pooch and check out the Howl-o-ween Costume Party at LexiDog at 5th Street, a benefit for Greenhill Humane Society, on Thursday, Oct. 30. See Calendar.

Oh, and there's this big, glamorous variety show happening Friday night at the McDonald Theatre. Lots of music, jokesters, scenesters, ghouls, zombies and dancers — in other words a HUGE extravaganza — with all proceeds going to White Bird Clinic. So, if you love Eugene like no other, get your butts to the Best of Eugene Awards Show. See Friday Calendar.
