The Lasso: Art auction fashion, Farmers Ball picks, beer brewing 101 and Sudeikis in KC
Your weekly roundup of fun stuff from the Lawrence interwebs.
Lawrencians put on their best for Saturday night’s Benefit Art Auction at the Lawrence Arts Center, and Larryville Artists shares snapshots of some of the best-dressed.

Lawrence.com’s Loud and Local blog recently shared the latest on Stik Figa, the Will Nots and Panda Circus. (Above is a file photo of Cloud Dog, a 2009 finalist.)
