It looks like a fun weekend coming up in SLC - showers in the forecast and a lot of exciting events around town. Here are some of my top picks for Salt Lake City events this weekend:
- The weekend starts early for basketball fans, with the Brigham Young University Cougars men's basketball team take on Florida in the Sweet Sixteen round of the NCAA Tournament in New Orleans tonight, Thursday March 24. The game starts at 5:30 p.m. with TV coverage on TBS, radio coverage on KSL 1160 AM and 102.7 FM.
- Real Salt Lake meets LA Galaxy Saturday, March 26 at 7 p.m. at Rio Tinto Stadium. Cheer on RSL in person, order the game from your cable or satellite provider, or watch it on the internet. Radio coverage on ESPN 700.
- The Diary of Anne Frank continues this weekend at Pioneer Memorial Theatre. It's a poignant reminder of the human face of genocide, and I highly recommend it.
- Spring skiing is going strong at Salt Lake Area Ski Resorts. I had a great day skiing at Park City Mountain Resort yesterday, and the snow just keeps on coming. Saturday, March 26, Canyons Resort will hold its annual Spring Gruv and pond skimming contest, starting at noon, with a free concert by Los Lobos at 3 p.m.
