Submitted by Michael Krumholtz on Mon, 05/13/2013 - 12:23pm

Finally, a triathlon you don't need to train for. A bicycle cruise along the river kicks off the event before transitioning into stage two: the flip-flop stroll. If you have enough energy, the day's final task is a short tube float to the finish line. Proceeds benefit the town of Glenwood Springs in their efforts to maintain the beautiful Roaring Fork River. Sat 11 a.m.

This acoustic folk-pop singer (real name: Dallas Green) is a three-time JUNO Award-winner (the Canadian equivalent of the Grammys), twice nabbing the trophy for Songwriter of the Year. He could claim a third title for his new album, The Hurry and the Harm, set for a June release. At this live radio show taping, expect to hear delicate guitar strumming and Green’s airy-but-strong voice croon emotive tunes. German/Swiss pop duo BOY will open. Mon 7 p.m.

Prepare for the best kind of sensory overload. This five-course meal, paired with wines straight from sun-soaked Tuscany, will have all your senses satisfied. Riverside views of Cherry Creek, drool-inducing scents wafting from the open kitchen, and live music from the Colorado Opera set the mood while the food—everything from soup to scallops, steaks to citrus soufflés—has taste buds begging for more. Mon 7 p.m.
