Editor’s picks: Summit County’s best bets for the weekend
March 24, 2016
Spring break is winding down and, with it, the ski season. While we still have the potential (and it's looking good) for another storm or two before the resorts close their doors, it's getting closer to that time of year when bikinis and onsies grace the slopes, and a goggle burn is right around the corner if you aren't careful. Free music and spring skiing is in sight — but not before maybe another powder day or two.
Business looked thriving from what I could tell driving from Frisco through Breckenridge this month to get home. Thank you to all the spring breakers who decided that Summit County was their destination for fun this year — we love this place and appreciate you helping us make a living, so we can continue to call it home.
HISTORICAL SALOON TOUR
The Breckenridge Heritage Alliance offers the Behind Swinging Doors Saloon Tour on Fridays at 5 p.m. In 1880, Breckenridge had 18 saloons lining Main Street, and this tour offers a glimpse into a whiskey-fueled past. Look in Sunday's Summit Daily for the full story. Go to breckheritage.com or call (970) 453-9767, x2 for more information.
A NIGHT ON BROADWAY
The National Repertory Orchestra presents "A Night on Broadway," with multi-talented tenor Connor O'Brien. The soloist will be performing Broadway favorites from "West Side Story," "Les Miserables," "Phantom of the Opera" and more. O'Brien has worked with the The University of Rochester Yellowjackets, as well as starred on The History Channel's "Shifting Gears." He has served as executive music supervisor and composer to The Discovery Channel for its series, "The Kustomizer," and as a songwriter, had several of his original songs featured on national television.
