Select Local Merchants

  • Get Real Belgian Festival
    Barbecue ribs with a smoky rauchbier. A melon salad with a dark doppelbock. The folks behind Get Real Presents specialize in pairings like these, sharing the joys of craft beer and delicious, locally-sourced foods. In this spirit, its team of foodies and beer aficionados hosts festivals featuring more than 80 brews, as well as restaurant events that pair craft beer with regional foods. As unique as it sounds, they admit this isn't exactly a new idea—they take a page from other countries, such as Belgium, who actually anchor much of their cuisine around the effervescent beverage. Following this "cuisine a la biere" model, they aim to highlight all of the great things a freshly crafted brew can do to enhance an evening out on the town, such as highlighting the flavors of a complementary dish, spicing up a local chef's stew, or softening your dad to the idea of paying off all of your student loans.

  • Full Bunny Contact
    A slightly dystopic Easter spirit pervades the entire Full Bunny Contact carnival. For more irreverent fun, carnival-goers can Shoot The Peep—a human dressed in a giant Peep costume—or sit on the Insult Easter Bunny's lap. There's also a dance floor where visitors can get their Easter groove on, and for sustenance, concession stands and a bar. In Full Bunny Contact's namesake game, the Easter bunny is not participants' fuzzy, festive friend. Instead, three towering Easter Bunnies chase players trapped in a caged-in field with them for 40 seconds. The players try to gather foam eggs that are redeemable for cash, candy, and prizes; the bunnies try to thwart them. It's a 40-second-long war.

  • Global Citizen Festival
    Many music festivals raise funds for charity. However, Global Citizen knows that real change is about much more than money. That's why the organization awards points to attendees who take action, whether through signing petitions, buying fair-trade products, or contacting representatives. These points can then be exchanged for tickets to concerts by philanthropic artists such as Beyonce, Pearl Jam, Nine Inch Nails, and Dixie Chicks. It's all part of Global Citizen's goal to end extreme global poverty by 2030. Although that may seem like a lofty dream to some, the non-profit's website points out an astounding statistic: "Extreme poverty has been halved in the last 25 years. Our generation can end it."
