Hank Williams Sr. If you've always dreamed of singing "There's a tear in my beer" while an entire roomful of people regards you with perfect understanding and sincere empathy, look no further. On this day in 1923 one of the most charismatic figures in country music was pushed from his mother's womb into a world filled with woe. A serious alcoholic by the age of 22, Williams revealed his lament with eloquent simplicity that truly spoke to folks. Unfortunately, all the Top 10 singles under the sun could not quiet the relentless call of the bottle. He didn't live to see 30, but 43 years later, the music he left behind is ageless. Join Rick Quisol and the Rootie Tootie Cowboys as they wind through Williams' extensive catalog. Lyric sheets and musical accompaniment will be supplied for anyone in the crowd who wishes to sing along -- anything from "Cold, Cold Heart" to "I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive" to "My Bucket's Got a Hole in It." Max & Sam's Hi-Ball Lounge, 9:30 p.m., $2.
