The Wizard of Oz

Submitted by Molly Duffy on Wed, 12/09/2015 - 4:06pm

Slip on those ruby red slippers and skip down the yellow brick road with Dorothy, the Tin Man, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion. This classic tale, adapted from the iconic film, comes to life on stage—along with new musical numbers and theatric stunts that give the performance some extra sparkle. Sat-Sun 2, 7:30 p.m.; Tue-Fri 7:30 p.m.

Old Man Winter Rally

Submitted by Henry Gargan on Thu, 12/10/2015 - 2:23pm

Burn enough calories in this off-road race to compensate for the plate of wings you'll gobble up later that day while watching the Super Bowl. This winter series offers two bike courses of 50- and 100-kilometer distances and, new this year, a 5.8-mile trail run, all of which will require athletes to negotiate unpredictable snow conditions. Stick around for an afterparty with live music and samples of a special-edition Oskar Blues brew. Proceeds benefit area trail restoration efforts. Sun 10 a.m.

Super Bowl Mardi Gras Party

Submitted by Morgan Tilton 2 on Tue, 02/02/2016 - 7:55am

You’ve bitten off most of your nails over the course of the NFL season, and now the ultimate test of your cuticles has finally come: the Denver Broncos facing off against the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50. As the team at Epic Brewing Company understands, though, there's no need to miss celebrating Mardi Gras to cheer on the home team. The solution: Epic will screen the game and host an all-you-can-eat buffet that includes po’ boy sliders, jambalaya, mac and cheese grits, and more made by Creole food truck Mile High Cajun. Sun 3-9 p.m.
