The heart may get all the glory, but its neighbor to the south, the liver, is nearly as important. It's the largest internal organ, essential to digestion and blood detoxification, and is apparently delicious with fava beans and chianti. Speaking of delicious, the American Liver Foundation's 10th annual FLAVORS OF ATLANTA fundraiser dinner is tonight. Chefs from some of the city's most beloved restaurants (Woodfire Grill, Rathbun's, the Buckhead Life group) will prepare four-course meals for donor diners. There's also a silent auction. $250. 7 p.m. Georgia Freight Depot, 1 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. 404-633-9169. www.flavorsofatlanta.org. (Andisheh Nouraee)
It wouldn't be out of line to call COLIN BRAGG (pictured; guitar), BEN GETTYS (double bass) and JAMIE SHEPARD (drums) virtuosos of the improv music world. But that would imply an allegiance to academia that just doesn't jive with what they do. For their show at Eyedrum, the heady trio instigates a dialogue of spontaneous compositions where ambient sounds and strange melodies collide in a back-and-forth of inventive and energetic musical exploration. $7. 9 p.m. Eyedrum Music & Art Gallery, 290 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, Suite 8. 404-522-0655. www.eyedrum.org.

Thanks in large part to the 2004 hit comedy Dodgeball, throwing balls at people is not just socially acceptable, it's downright trendy. The Chick-fil-A Bowl DUCK 'N' DODGE DODGEBALL TOURNAMENT is an attempt to leverage this social/sports phenomenon for a good cause – building schools in Niger, an impoverished African nation attacked by a swarm of locusts in 2005. Members of division-winning teams (six to 10 members) win Chick-fil-A food for a year. The adult division winning team wins $1,000. $200 per team. 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Cobb Galleria Centre, 2 Galleria Parkway. 770-955-8000. cfabdodgeballatlanta.com. (AN)
