KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Big Slick Celebrity Weekend kicks off Friday, and you don't have to score a ticket to get in on the fun.

Pinstripes in Overland Park is hosting a free after-party on Saturday. Pinstripes General Manager Alex Michaud visited FOX 4 Thursday to give us a taste of the after-party menu.

After-party guests are invited to keep the festivities rolling with celebrity bartender DJ Fox “Slacker,” enjoy bowling and bocce, and dine on our chef’s made-from-scratch creations, including this summer-perfect Bruschetta.
