Smart Bets web extra: Shamboozle Fest

You might need to wait for March, 2012 to indulge in Shamrock shakes and green beer. But you don’t have to wait for Celtic Rock. Shamboozle Fest takes over Pisgah Brewing this Saturday, Sept. 24, from 3 p.m. on. Gaelic Storm, originally from Santa Monica, Calif., headlines. Other music acts include The Movement, Big Daddy Bluegrass, Scott Munns and more. There’s also Corn Hole, henna tattoos, mini-golf and plenty of other activities. Food comes from Rosetta’s, Charles’ Jamaican Jerk Chicken and D.O.G.S. Tickets are $22 advance or $25 day of show (kids under 12 get in free).
