Still fit into your beloved college hoodie of yesteryear? Has it turned into a DIY cardigan via craft scissors after one too many spins in the dryer? Stained or not, pull it on and get your hungry ass down to the Westport Flea Market (817 Westport Road, 816-931-1986) for the Newhouse Shelter Showdown Bite-a-Burger from 6 to 8 p.m. For $20, you can get all-you-can-eat burgers, all-you-can-drink domestic drafts, and a side while supporting this local nonprofit, which helps abused women make positive choices and become self-sufficient. Keep rivalries going at the poker, shuffleboard and trivia tables for $2 a ticket before succumbing to a food coma. Though fans of all institutions of higher learning are invited to participate, Mizzou holds strong as the biggest money raiser. All proceeds benefit Newhouse. Tickets are available online at newhouseshelter.org.
Fri., June 17, 6-8 p.m., 2011
