Best Bets for June 4 to June 11
What: In another one of its characteristically off-beat artistic pairings, The Lab at Belmar offers Silent Films and Bedroom Paintings, an exhibit dedicated to exposing different sources of wonderment.
Why: Bedroom paintings inspire immediate pleasure in their viewers, and here, you can see the bedroom works of accomplished local and national artists, along with early-twentieth-century films from the Library of Congress, the British Film Institute, and the Netherlands Film Museum.
Bonus: Pair your visit with The Lab's summertime Thursday night Mixed Taste events, where two local experts come together to discuss seemingly unrelated topics (think tamales and literary memoirs).
Details: Through Aug 31. Tue-Sat noon-6 p.m.; Sun noon-5 p.m. The Lab at Belmar, 404 S. Upham St., Lakewood. Free with paid admission. For more information, call 303-934-1777 or visit www.belmarlab.org.
What: Soul meets country in this year's Concert For Kids. Grammy award winner John Legend joins popular artist Jewel for a concert that promises to be full of new music. Legend just released a new DVD, and Jewel's latest CD debuts soon.
Why: Concert proceeds benefit local kids' organizations like Children's Hospital, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Make-A-Wish Foundation, and public school systems.
Bonus: Ride the Concert for Kids buzz into Saturday's Safety & Wellness Expo for Kids, where pediatricians and Dora the Explorer come together to teach healthy and safe living to kids as well as the rest of the family.

What: Relax and do good at the second annual Massage for the Cure, Massage Envy's fundraiser for Susan G. Komen and breast cancer research.
Why: We can hardly think of a more enjoyable way to give money for breast cancer, especially because 100 percent of the event proceeds benefit cancer research.
