It might be hard to believe March is already here, but with so many events coming up there’s no time to look back. This month is packed with events for the entire family to enjoy. Or, if it’s a more mature crowd looking for entertainment, there’s still plenty of choices. Here’s a breakdown of 5 events that should have something for all audiences.
On March 14th at 7:30pm, the Boulder Bookstore is hosting author Daniel Pinchbeck to speak about his book. Titled “How Soon is Now?” his book looks at what he calls an ecological mega-crises on Earth. Actions taken now may determine what kind of world and lives future generations have. Pinchbeck, a futurist and philosopher, wrote his book as a social guide to avoid this crises. It covers subjects ranging from agriculture, energy, and ideology. Vouchers cost just $5, but are also good for $5 off the author’s book or other item bought that day.
The people of Boulder are known for, among many things, their love of supporting fellow locals. In celebration of that, the Seeds Library Cafe is hosting an event called Dinner On the Bridge. Providing food from local farmers and artisans, a five course meal is created by some of Boulder’s top chefs. And, if that wasn’t enough, live music and a complementary cocktail are provided to attendees. At just $50 per ticket, it’s a steal for the quality of food on offer.
The Five “Mother Sauces” Cooking Class on March 28th will teach what the basis is for all great sauces. Hosted at the Food Lab from 6-9pm for $79 per person, this class is the perfect first step for learning how to make any classic sauce on your own. The five mother sauces being taught are Bechamel, Espagnole, Hollandaise, Tomato and Veloute. Because this class is sauce focused, a proper meal isn’t going to be made. However, the amount of tasting and snacking is sure to be enough to fill anyone up.
Matisyahu’s “Release the Bound Freedom Tour” continues at Boulder Theater March 19th. The show will feature music from his newly released album, “Release The Bound via Thirty Tigers”. This long awaited collaboration with The Polish Ambassador and Salt Cathedral, hasn’t been performed live until this month. His previous songs, such as “King Without A Crown”, have reached the number 1 spot on alternative rock charts. And, his follow up album was even nominated for a Grammy. At just $25 a ticket, this all ages show is certain to be the most unique of the month.
The Boulder Dinner Theater Academy is putting on another musical aimed at kids and their families. This comedic take on Jack and the Beanstalk will be performed from March 16 through the 27th for just $8 a ticket. The story focuses on a forgetful boy named Jack who sells his family’s cow for beans instead of food. This drives his mother mad, but all is well when Jack makes friends with a giant. Teaching morals about unlikely friends and patience, this play brings the audience in to participate in the performance throughout.
