This Week in Colorado Springs (12/5 - 12/10)

A Sunny Start to December

By Tony Fleming-Brum - December 5, 2017

Good morning Colorado Springs, and welcome once again to this week’s edition of the Front Range Shuttle weekly events blog! We’re still not going to be seeing snow in the forecast, but temperatures sure are dropping out there! With lows below freezing every day this week, you’ll definitely want to bundle up if you’re planning anything early in the morning or later in the evening, but our afternoons are looking mostly sunny all the way through next week! I’m sure the winter weather is coming, but for now let’s enjoy the sun while we’ve got it!
 
Kicking off our week with Tuesday (12/5), we’ll be heading over to Bubba’s 33 for their End of Prohibition Party! In celebration of the anniversary of the end of prohibition, on Tuesday, December 5, Colorado Springs’ Bubba’s 33 will party like it’s 1933 with $3.33 Classic Cheeseburgers and Single Bacon Burgers and 33-cent boneless and bone-in wings. The event will feature giveaways every hour, at 33 minutes past the hour. Party Like it’s 1933 and Celebrate the End of Prohibition!
 
As for this Wednesday (12/6), we’ll be stopping by the Stargazers Theatre for the Pikes Peak Blues Community Quarterly Blues Jam! The Pikes Peak Blues Community sponsors open Jams four times during the year and we invite all interested musicians to participate. For each Jam, we round up some musicians to form a host band, and the other musicians who drop by are invited onstage to play along. We supply the drum kit, keyboard, and sound system, and musicians bring their own instruments – guitars, basses, horns, vocal chords, harps…and whatever else you like to play. All music lovers and dancers are welcome at the Jam, too! Come out to jam and socialize with some of the finest blues players in the Springs!
 
And rolling right along into Thursday (12/7), we’ll be making our way up to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo for their first ever Electric Moonlight event!
