Holy cow and hot dog!

Cripes, there's a lot happening this weekend as we try to cram as much summer in while we still can.

Everyone's buzzing about the FlugTag down at Waterfront Park - I'm hoping it won't be too crowded, as the flying machines dunk into the river Saturday afternoon.

Of course, the MAX closure on the Steel Bridge may affect your travel time downtown, so beware.

Up north, all the animals from the farm will be aout to play among rides, treats, tunes and monster trucks at the Clark County Fair. Yes, "Dock Dogs" -- the single greatest entertainment value of all time -- will be leaping into action.

More dogs, MORE - in Hillsboro, the long paws of the law K9 trials will show off these canine crimefighters.

And music of course - if you don't make it to the Marvin Gaye Sam Cooke tribute Friday night at the Wonder, you're totally missing out. But don't fear - the Portland Pickathon is going on all weekend near Mt. Scott at Pendarvis Farm.

Sheesh, this old man needs a nap.

Non sequiter: meanwhile, I hear some Bojack posters are referring to the Pearl District as 'fake New York.'
Love it.
