Here are some ideas for what to do this weekend:


Gallery 809 in Glenwood Springs is hosting an opening reception for its August guest artist, Ida Burnaman, from 5-8 p.m. The cooperative art gallery hosts a different guest artist each month, and the free opening for Burnaman will allow you to meet and mingle with the artist, enjoy refreshments and view her pastel and watercolor landscapes.


Celebrate KDNK’s summer membership drive with Blues & BBQ from 4-10 p.m. at the Fourth Street Plaza in Carbondale. Music will come from Preaching to the Choir, a brand new blues band comprising Frank Martin (formerly of Let Them Roar), Bob Levey, Ken Wiencek and Karen Tafejian. Marcus James will also perform.

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

Local beer from Carbondale Beer Works will be available, including local gourmet barbecue from Potter Farms, Flip Wise, Sustainable Settings, Slow Groovin’ BBQ, Avalanche Cheese, Downvalley Tavern, Milagro Ranch, Allegria, Mountain Primal, Viceroy and Town.

The event is free for KDNK members and $5 for everyone else.


SoL Theatre’s production of “Into the Woods” runs Thursday through Saturday at 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. at the gym in the Third Street Center. “Into the Woods,” the fantasy musical where fairy tales collide, entertains with an amazing cast of young adults and SoL’s executive director, Jennifer Michaud, as the witch. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for kids 12 and younger, and Sunday is your last chance to catch the musical.
