Summit Up 3-3-11: All decked out in our prosciutto hat


Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that figures that, if we’re going to be stuck on the page with the What’s Happening calendar, we may as well get in the spirit. What kind of curious, unique and appealing things might we like to see happening in our fair county? Howzabout …

, Saturday 11 a.m. over in the vacant lot behind the Store Formerly Known as Vitamin Cottage. Thrill as professional and amateur hake flingers fling their fish for distance, accuracy and style in this wacky, family-friendly event. No dogs! Best “interpretive hake fling” wins a year’s supply of hake from Freddy’s Fishes n’ Knishes, Black Hawk.

(who’s got rickets and a touch of scurvy) over in Heeney somewheres Sunday sometime: Many folks pry the fenderbergs off their cars and leave them to die, but Heeney’s amazing fenderberg artists take these automotive artifacts and transform them into whimsical creations ranging from a basket of kittens to dogs playing poker to babies covered in spaghetti. $5 at the door includes all-you-can-eat mag chloride-sicles and entry into raffle to win a Ronco Fenderbergler – an ingenious device that uses a mild laser to remove fenderbergs!

, Breck, 10 a.m. Tuesdays. For many, hot yoga’s too hot and regular yoga’s too cold, but tepid yoga is just right! With accompanying tepid music from Kenny G, Air Supply and the like, you’ll be treated to temperatures in the mid 70s while our spirit guides work that booty into karmic firmness. Bring a quart of tapioca and get $5 off!

meeting, Oddfellows lodge, Montezuma, 11:45 p.m. Thursdays. Hop off the vegan bandwagon with the Meatmasters! From your meaty brethren, you’ll learn how to properly de-vein a rump roast, butcher a hedgehog and braise a mountain lion – all in a secure setting free of tree huggers and other non-meat-eating weirdos. The first meeting of the month is Bring Your Own Flank Steak and/or Wear Your Prosciutto Hat night, so don’t miss out!

meet Friday mornings at sunrise at the Farmer’s Korner Ghetto Mart for a robust session of crewel work, rug hooking, macrame and beading. Bring your own mimosa makin’s, your funniest Easter hat and an attitude of adventure for a morning with “da ladies.” NO MEN.

, every other Friday from dawn til dusk. Meet at the gazebo for a lightning round of Risk or Life, then trot through town singing sea chanties in ancient Greek with Frisco town Council Members. It’s weird, it’s wacky … it’s Freaky Frisco Fridays! (Do not participate if you have asthma, are pregnant, own a gerbil or sell insurance.)

meet most weekday afternoons on the sidewalk outside where the Prospector used to be, there to express their love of Breckenridge, disdain for the rest of the county and to worship all things Breck: high winds, impossible parking, whiny tourists … and more!

Hoo boy! That’s enough of that! Hope ya’ll have a thrillin’ Thursday, folks.

We out.
