There's something brewing at the coast coliseum. It's the 3rd Annual Top of the Hops Beer Festival. Four beer gardens will hold more than 150 world class craft beers. Beer drinkers get a commemorative sampling mug to hold their two once samples. And if you're interested in learning more than which flavored beer you like, head over to the brew university education area, where there's going to be beer seminars and food pairings.

That Championship Season is featured this weekend at the Bay St. Louis Little Theater. The play has recently been revived in Broadway and the plot revolves around a high school basketball coach, now retired, four members of the team he guided to the championship thirty years earlier. But as they gather with the coach, who they also looked up to for guidance, they are starting to suspect that he may not have been as great as they thought he was.
