Commonly known by his official title, "The Coolest Motherfucker on the Planet," the one and only Willie Nelson plays tonight at the Oregon State Fair, making the drive down to Salem well worth it. And there's much more: On Saturday, Poison takes the stage, or there's the duck racing, or the "Mutton Bustin'" (in which "children have fun holding onto a sheep and trying to last six seconds"), or the rodeo—which concludes with something known as a "pig riot." Don't ask. Just go. EH
