There’s a lot to eat today.

The unofficial end of summer is almost here, and while the summer weather definitely isn’t going away anytime soon, there’s no harm in feasting like it might.

3 Course Comedy is honoring all things barbecue tonight at The Deer Pile, 206 E. 13th Ave., with special guests Mo Vida, Zeke Herrera and Brent Gill. Food is served at 8 p.m. and the comedy starts at 8:30 p.m.

And at Adrift, 218 S. Broadway, they’re having a Waimea Wednesday Summer Luau from 6 to 9 p.m.

They’ll have an all-you-can-eat pig roast for $20, plus the usual tiki cocktails and some surprises.

And in other $20 all-you-can-eat deals, they’re having a Spaghetti Social at Dio Mio, 3264 Larimer St., where you can get your fill of spaghetti, meatballs, salad and garlic bread. It’s also Wine Wednesday, so you get half-off bottles all night.

Drop by anytime from 4 to 9 p.m. 

Or if you’re just looking for some free music, head over to Levitt Pavilion, 1380 W. Florida Ave., where you can see Ripe and Chris Daniels & the Kings with Freddi Gowdy for free.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m.
