Breckenridge, Feb. 15
7:30 p.m., Backstage Theatre, 121 South Ridge St., Breckenridge. The 10th follows two recruits who join the 85th Regiment at Camp Hale in the Pando Valley for the purpose of becoming alpine soldiers. Thrown into a battalion already reeling from a disastrous mission in the Aleutian Islands, the new recruits must deal with a splintered division populated by an overly-educated army force of Dartmouth and Harvard graduates, oversize egos, cantankerous mule skinners, and the looming six week mission in the dead of winter known as ‘D Series.’ Fortitude, faith, and fighting spirit combine to create a brotherhood of soldiers never seen before – or since. (970) 453-0199.
Winter Wine Weekend
Keystone, Feb. 15
7 p.m., Warren Station Center for the Arts, 164 Ida Belle Drive, Keystone. Winter Wine Tasting Warren Station at Keystone’s Winter Wine Weekend continues with tasty food and wine parings. If you thought that wine doesn’t complement snow, think again! Guests will be able to choose from a vast array of wines in this walk-around event showcasing bold fireplace reds with sparkling and winter whites. Delicious hors d’oeuvres, cheeses and breads will be available to sample with each sip, while top wine specialists help you to develop your palate. Live piano jazz by Eric Lillie and good company make for a memorable weekend of indulgences at Keystone.
