Lovers of beer and biking should head to Palmer Square Park (Palmer and Kedzie) on Saturday for a taste of both, as New Belgium Brewing Company's annual Tour de Fat kicks off with a stop in Chicago. There'll be a bike parade, lots of music (from Mucca Pazza and Sean Hayes) special performances (from the Squirm Bumpee Circus, The Daredevil Chicken Club and The Sprockettes, Portland's original mini-bike dance troupe) and a whole lotta brews including the flagship Fat Tire Amber Ale. You'll also get to watch one lucky person (the winner of an online contest) give away his or her car to charity in exchange for a brand-new commuter bike.

The free event runs from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.; bikers, obviously, are welcome.
