Amy Maziarz takes a swing on the mini golf course at the Gateway Fun Park in Boulder.

Remember that “Tiny Toons Adventure” show? The baby-GAP version of Looney Tunes in which ridiculously-named creatures like Babs Bunny, Little Beeper and Gogo Dodo recreated Looney Tunes scenarios in more tot-friendly formats?

I remember the little duck — Plucky Duck is his name, as I found out via the Interwebs — playing putt-putt with his old man.

After hours of miniature fun, the inevitable last shot came. The blue ball went down, but never came back up.

“Blue ball go down the hole!”

Poor Plucky was devastated. Left hanging by a blue ball.

I have a point. Or an opportunity, rather, for you to create your own mini-golf experience. And if whacking a neon ball around creepy, weather-worn statues hasn’t sold you, don’t worry. You know there’s booze if I’m writing about it.

Gateway Park Fun Center, 4800 N 28th St., will open its gates from 4-9 p.m. Friday for a night filled with food trucks, drinks, music and more!

Infomercial Alex, get outta here.

But seriously folks, food options vary from Crock Spot to RollinGreens and Sebs Pizza. Boulder Beer and Dry Dock Brewing are donating some foamy libations, as is Suerte Tequila. Boco Entertainment’s got the tunage. And with volleyball courts and face painting listed among the many family-friendly adventures listed, it sounds like a quality Friday night.

Should you arrive via pedal power (your bikes, people), you can get $1 off beer and mini golf.

Aloha, Momi Hiwa

But hey, maybe a beer with friends is what you’re craving. (I just described my natural state of being.)

Over at their tap room (5757 Arapahoe Ave.), Avery’s releasing their Momi Hiwa on Sunday — a name I would delight in hearing said in drunken slur.

This new brew’s got hints of dark chocolate and toasted coconut, cradled in rum barrels for months before poured into your cups.

I’d get over there by 11 a.m. for their Line Party — a fine assortment of rare and exclusive beers — and start your Sunday right.

And for you folks lucky enough to partake in Avery’s 4th Annual SourFest this weekend, remember: If you Instagram a puckered-up mug of yours with a “#averyfest” hashtag, you’ll be famous for a day on their homepage.

New tunes

Friendly reminder that it’s June already, and the Walrus Saloon, 1911 11th St., has new music for you. Their monthly mix tape is dubbed “The Country Mix,” and is available via download or CD should your fine asses bee-bop over there this weekend.
