What do you suppose an evening with Nick Offerman consists of? Hand-sharpening straight razors, then fine-tuning our collective facial-hair growth? Possibly. Sipping scotch while minimally discussing ex-wives? Could be. “Building a Respectable Table: A Tutorial”? Also a feasible option. What we do know is that Offerman is at House of Blues (2200 N. Lamar St.) Saturday, and we expect the room to smell of old leather, rye and wood chips, because Nick Offerman is a total boss. He’s in town hosting Meat Fight, Observer foul-mouth contributing writer Alice Laussade’s annual benefit for carnivores, by carnivores, benefiting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Offerman agreed to the task because, again, he’s the best guy. Saturday, though, there are no ribs or pulled pork, just good old-fashioned quality time with the most rugged everyman in Hollywood: Ron Swanson. Doors at 6 p.m., Offerman at 7. Tickets range $24.50 to $34.50. Visit ticketmaster.com.
