Beer and swing dancing, natural partners indeed, will meet beneath the waning summer sun this week at Columbus Commons.

Beer and swing dancing, natural partners indeed, will meet beneath the waning summer sun this week at Columbus Commons.

Lindy hop on over to the commons for a Goose Island beer tasting and a swing dance lesson, followed by a live performance by The Randys, who play their takes on popular music from the '40s, '50s and '60s. Burgers, Dogs and Fries will be open if you grow an appetite while rock stepping the evening away, and libations will be available.

All the fun happens around the cafe and carousel on the south end of the park. Wear comfortable, closed-toe shoes. Beginners are welcome. Single? You can still mingle: SwingColumbus members will serve as dance partners for anyone who arrives solo.
