Can't get enough derby? Race your PBR can at Will's

Aping the old pinewood derby of Boy Scouts days, PBR sets up its Pabst Can Derby at probably the most appropriate venue in town this week. The idea is simple: Make a car out of a PBR can, place it at the top of an inclined track and pit it against another car to see which one's faster. Drag will definitely be a factor, so try not to put the mouth of the can in the front. You can build your own PBR car at home out of the empties in your recycling bin, or just stop in and use one of the pre-made cars on hand. And if, however improbably, your car ends up needing repairs, Will's has plenty of raw materials behind the bar. 

8 p.m. Monday, May 9 | Will's Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | willspub.org | free
