    Stuff your face and enjoy the competition tonight.

    THE FINAL TIP, THE FINAL MUNCH:  By the end of the night, a pair of championships will be decided.  One of them will be cutting down the nets in Indianapolis.  The other will be watching that feat on a very full stomach.  Tonight in Hartford, the ultimate eaters will be crowned in the finals of the fourth annual Munch Madness competition.  As we told you in a previous episode, the Wood-n-Tap puts on the speed eating competition for teams of two-to-for people to see who can finish off a plate of bar bites the fastest.  Tonight's champion will walk home (or run quickly to find a bathroom) with four VIP tailgate party tickets to Opening Day of the New England Patriots game.  7:30pm.

    WAY FAR ACROSS THE POND:  First there was the Beatles, then the Stones, and even Herman's Hermit's.  But none of them came from as far away as Norway's Serena-Maneesh.  Five years ago the band took both sides of the Atlantic by storm with their self-titled indie-rock hit.  Now, S-M is back with their follow up, "Abyss in B Minor."  Tonight the psych rockers are taking on Daniel Street Club in Milford.  Tickets are $12.  9pm.

    VIBRANT VIRTUOSITY:  Head to Storrs tonight for some classic classical music.  The Pacifica Quartet is playing at the Jorgensen at UConn.  The ensemble has been recognized for its virtuosity, exuberant performance style and even their daring repertory choices.  Tonight's program will include works by Haydn, Prokofiev and Schubert.  Tickets are $28-$30.  7:30pm.
