2) Taste of South Africa

The Johnny Clegg Band & Ladysmith Black Mambazo perform at 8 p.m. tonight at Clowes Memorial Hall on the Ball State University campus.

Tickets start at $20.

Johnny Clegg, a singer, songwriter, dancer, anthropologist and musical activist, is one of South Africa’s most celebrated musicians. His crossover music, a vibrant blend of Western pop and African Zulu rhythms, has exploded onto the international scene and broken barriers in his own country.

In more than three decades, Johnny Clegg has sold over five million albums worldwide. He has wowed vast audiences with his audacious live shows and won a number of national and international awards for his music and for his outspoken views on apartheid, his perspectives on migrant workers in South Africa and the general situation in the world today.

3) St. Party's Day

Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with the ultimate bar crawl in downtown Indianapolis. Visit Sensu, Cadillac Ranch, Howl at the Moon, Blu, Ike and Jonesy's andTaps and Dolls between noon and 7:30 p.m. Saturday.

With your $20 ticket you get four drink tickets and access to all participating bars. That sounds pretty normal for a bar crawl. Well, this is where you'll leave normal at the door.

You'll do a shotgun start to the bar crawl, much like you see at golf outings. This helps with the choas and makes things a bit more fun. That's not even the best part. Organizers are giving away some gold during the event

There will be a scavenger hung for "Tully's $500 Pot-O-Gold" Yes you read that right, real gold in a pot. (Just no Rainbow, but there will be Lepurchauns!)

You must complete a task at every bar. Complete every task and you qualify for your name to be put in "Tully's Pot-O-Gold." There will be more prizes and giveaways totaling $2,000.

Register at Sensu from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday.
