You'll want to keep your evening open on Jan. 11.

The annual Block, Beer & Bourbon bash is back with a colorful twist, adding a whole lot of burgandy to the mix. The event will take over the Albert Pike Masonic Center at 6 p.m. serving all the drinks, eats and live music you could want.

Guests will enjoy bites from The Pantry while sipping on curated beer, bourbon and burgundy wines from O’Looney’s Wine and Liquor. And once again, the talented Rodney Block Collective will take the stage to provide the soundtrack to the evening. 

This event serves as a fundraiser to support local public radio stations KLRE, which airs classical music, and KUAR, the local NPR station featuring programs such as "Morning Edition," "All Things Considered" and "Fresh Air."
