Did you go see The Rape Of The Sabine Women, By Grace B. Matthias last weekend? I did–it was awesome! (Can I say that about a film with “rape” in the title? Bear with me — it’s worth it.) I laughed and I cried, both. And I’m a theatre professional, so that’s saying something. This play has so much to say about the state of consent, gender dynamics, and so much more, and this weekend is the last possible weekend you can enjoy this comedy (that’s a comedy until it isn’t).
Speaking of timely gender discussions: did you know that this whole week was Transgender Awareness Week? Well it was, and this weekend, Out Boulder is hosting and facilitating several events to celebrate the trans folx in our community, and to support them and raise awareness too.
Boulder’s pre-holiday festivities are continuing full swing this weekend, Boulder: shopping-wise, the Mountain Standard Flagship pop up shop is having its Grand Opening this weekend, with stellar shopping opportunities all season (and special deals this first weekend). Wanna Switch On The Holidays? Even though the star on the mountain is already on, there’ll be a holiday sing-along Sunday led by the Boulder Chorale, to commemorate the lighting-up of the spectacular Pearl Street Mall light display, AND there’ll even be an early appearance by Santa himself!
Turn Boulder into a giant game with the Amazing Scavenger Hunt! This is a fantastically fun game much in the vein of TV show Amazing Race, but with our lovely city as the game board. Join in teams of 2-5, and win fabulous prizes while exploring and adventuring in Boulder!
Oh my gosh, you guys, November 18th is the last day of the Boulder (and Longmont) Farmer’s Market! Tis the season….Get there this Saturday, or be forced to wait till next year…
Happy happy weekend, Boulder!
