The Weekender // May 17th - 19th
Happy almost-weekend! It’s Thursday, which means there’s only one more day in the office and then it’s time to get out in the sun and into our beloved niche of Colorado. If you don’t already know, this weekend will boast some classic Durango events that brings everybody into town. Thanks to the heaps of local food, beer, live music, and laughs guaranteed this weekend, only quality experiences will ensue. It’s a non-stop weekend!
Ready Your Tastebuds
Taste of Durango
Best for: Anyone and everyone who can enjoy a full day of local drinks and food.
“Local craft breweries, artisan cocktails, and countless samples of the world-class cuisine that Durango’s restaurants offer.” Is your mouth watering yet? Taste of Durango returns this Sunday to give you the experience of the food and drink scene that has put Durango on the map for dining. Alongside a wide variety of cuisine, head to Main Avenue to enjoy live music and games while you stroll with your friends double-fisting craft beer. Go ahead and pre-order your tickets now! The event will go from 11am to 4pm.
Music on the Lawn
Party in the Park
Best for: Those needing a day in the sun to enjoy live and local music.
Buckley Park will transform into a music festival this Saturday from 12:00-6pm. Stillwater Music is hosting the 9th Annual Party in the Park! As a free and family friendly event, this day will boast over 90 students performing music on the stage, surrounded by local organizations offering information about kid’s summer programs. Six hours of live music, kids activities, food from Bloom Cafe, and ice cream from The Purple Ice Cream Truck - now that’s a way to spend your Saturday!
Need a Laugh?
Laugh Therapy Comedy Showcase
Best for: Anyone looking for a laugh, a beer, or good food. So to sum it up: everyone.
The title says it all. Head to The Irish Embassy Pub for a quality dose of good laughs this Saturday night. The show starts at 8pm, but it’s always a smart idea to get there when the doors open at 7pm for the best seats in the house and time to order a Guinness and some fish and chips in true Irish style. Tickets are $10 at the door! Comedians include headliner Charlie Vergos, opener Byan Nystrom, and featuring Jill Carlson.
