Colorado Springs Dance Theatre's Wine Soiree

When: Sat., Aug. 28, 5:30-8:30 p.m. 2010

If a night of wine, hors d'oeuvres, dance and a silent auction benefiting a good cause sounds enticing, check out the Colorado Springs Dance Theatre's Wine Soiree from 5:30 to 8:30 tonight at the Colorado Springs School (21 Broadmoor Ave.). The $40 ticket (csdance.org) allows you into a room full of participating businesses, including Vintages Wine and Spirits, Garden of the Gods Gourmet, José Muldoon's, Marigold Café and Bakery and more. The soiree dance performance features local Jordan McHenry of Cirque du Soleil. Proceeds go to the CSDT's scholarship fund for youth as well as the still-hoped-for Pikes Peak Children's Museum. — Sarah White

I gave tours at Rock Ledge Ranch for three summers, and yet I never once got to participate in anything as modern as the Pikes Peak EcoFestival (3105 Gateway Road, pikespeakecofestival.com). The event includes ecologically conscious exhibitors, live music, a Bristol Brewing Co. beer garden, local food, recycled art projects and eco-workshops. If you bring electronics (and applicable recycling fees) to Blue Star Recyclers in the parking lot, you'll receive free admission; otherwise, it's $4 per person (free for kids 12 and under). The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; BYOWB — that's bring your own water bottle — and get it refilled for free all day. — Kelsey Fowler

Price: $40
