Editor’s Picks: Summit County’s best bets for the weekend
Happy Friday after Thanksgiving — hopefully you’re having a lazy morning drinking coffee, feeling satisfied from last night’s feast and not regretting gluttonous behavior by limiting yourself to a piece of lettuce today. Maybe you’ve already been up for hours searching for Black Friday deals. I’m not really sure what goes on at 4 a.m. anywhere, or if Black Friday is even a thing here in Summit. I do my best to avoid crowds — shopping on Black Friday sounds akin to trying to drive south on Highway 9 between Frisco and Breck on a Friday evening at the height of season. Whatever you’re doing this weekend, I hope you have something to be thankful for. Although I’m not thankful that Spirit Airlines bought out Frontier, I am grateful to be sitting on this plane on the way to see my sister in Oakland. It’s easy during the holidays to let the stress outshine spending time with the important people in your life, but take a second to appreciate what you have. I am thankful to have a great relationship with my family and I’m grateful for an amazing partner to share my life with. I have a lot to be thankful for, and I try to make sure I always appreciate the time I do get with the people I love most.
CONCERT BENEFITS DOMUS PACIS
On Saturday, Nov. 28, Under A Blood Red Sky U2 tribute band will be playing a concert to benefit Domus Pacis Family Respite. This organization brings cancer patients and their families to Summit County, providing them a week to spend time together in the mountains. This will be the last concert of the year for the concert series, but look for more events next year to help support this amazing nonprofit. The Love Hope Strength Foundation will also be at the event to sign folks up for the bone marrow registry. All it takes is a quick cheek swab to be put on the list to potentially save someone’s life. Check out the full story on page 14.
