Gut Check recommends three ways you won't go hungry this weekend.

OK, it's a long weekend for most of us. So Three for Four...

1. This evening and tomorrow the Schlafly Bottleworks (7260 Southwest Avenue) hosts the second annual Brew & Q pork steak championship. Live music both days. The barbecue competition is tomorrow. More info at the Schlafly site right here.

After the jump: #2 and #3 and a preview of next week on Gut Check.

2. More barbecue: The Rib America Festival hits Soldier's Memorial downtown today through Monday. Barbecue and all sorts of live music -- including Night Ranger!!1! More info here.

3. Pack a picnic meal -- or get your favorite carry-out -- and head to Forest Park for Richard III. Shakespeare, fresh air, food: It doesn't get much better than that. More information hereabouts.

That's it for this week. Next week, after the three-day weekend, the Great St. Louis Pizza Glut of 2008 continues -- and a very special birthday.

Have a great weekend. Eat something good. Happy Memorial Day.
