Sometimes I’m supposed to pick things I think you should do, even if I would never do them myself, which actually is mighty difficult because I’ll do just about anything. But I digress into my sexual platitudes … Here are a few options to spend your time over the next two-week period — except for Sundays, of course.
19 THURSDAY–1 MONDAY
Showing 9am to 9pm daily at the Joseph Memorial Building is Joseph Smith The Prophet of the Restoration, a film about the life and legacy of of the LDS founding prophet. Also daily, at the Tabernacle, are short Tabernacle Organ Recitals. The organ staff and guest organists perform 30-minute recitals starting at noon.
If you’re feeling a little rebellious, raise the ban and check out the Thanksgiving Point Wedding Expo, March 27–28; dammit, why not, this is our Wedding Issue. The Point also offers culinary classes March 25–26, teaching recipes on dishes like Mormon Jellied Fruit Salad, Mormon Famous Senate Bean Soup and Scotch Scones … hmmm!
After spending time and your gay dollars at the Point, keep heading south and partake in these gay chic events at Brigham Young University. For instance, there’s an intriguing lecture at the BYU Lee Library Auditorium called Probing the Lives of Christ and Joseph Smith on March 20 at 7pm. On March 27, the CEO Friday Forum is How to Keep Going When All Heck Breaks Loose at Your Startup, at 11:30am. Why the hell not, right?
In the Salt Lake Valley, a couple of great options are the Tinker Bear Boutique at South Towne Expo Center, March 28, 10am–6pm. Peruse the trendy clothing, Scentsy, Usborne books, home decor, gourmet foods, baby items, kids items and more. And as if we all haven’t already marked our calendars with a big Smiley Face on National Quilt Day, March 21, there’s a huge celebration in the works at the Sandy Senior Center … ooolala!
Any one of these many fantabulous goings-on will prepare our evil, threatening ways for enlightenment during the LDS General Conference, April 4–5.
