Sigh. Just when you thought it was safe to order a whiskey shot, beer gets all up in your business again. Kidding—we love beer, obviously! Beer Bust is a fundraiser for the Downtown Sacramento Foundation, a nonprofit set up by the Downtown Sacramento Partnership to help revitalize “The Kay” district (that's the old K Street Mall to you and me). While the cost of admission might pinch the wallet, the price includes food, drink and a four-hour parking validation. On hand: Bites and drinks from Broadacre Coffee, Pizza Rock, Shady Lady Saloon and more. There's also music from Paper Pistols and deejay sets from Sister Crayon (pictured) and DJ Blackheart. It's 21-and-over only. 547 L Street,
