For those who are not vacationing this holiday weekend in places like North Korea and Mar-a-Lago, here are some exciting and fabulous events to consider. I unfortunately will be imprisoned at home apparently making pear butter, regrouting the bathroom floors and simply doing anything Donna says. Since I didn’t find anything super exciting happening on Labor Day (0ther than Oktoberfest!), I guess we should all just go to work. Ha!
Saturday, Sep. 2

The Salt Lake City Public Library is screening a classic, weird-ass film from 1981, “Time Bandits.” In this fantastic voyage through time and space, a boy named Kevin escapes his gadget-obsessed parents to join a band of time-traveling dwarfs. Armed with a map stolen from the Supreme Being, they plunder treasure from Napoleon and Agamemnon — but the Evil Genius (aka Donna) is watching their every move. Stars Sean Connery and John Cleese. SLC Public Library, 210 E. 400 South, 11 a.m. Free!
Piper Down once again presents Cosplay Karaoke and Shenanigans.

They are looking for a reputable charitable group and if you have a recommendation, please let them know. They need water, canned foods, blankets, clothes, toiletries and word of mouth.
