This Week in Colorado Springs (2/10 - 2/16)

Happy Valentine's Day Week!

By Tony Fleming-Brum - February 9, 2017

Welcome once again to the Front Range Shuttle weekly event blog, and what a lovely week of weather we just had! This coming week will be a bit more chilly, with highs mostly in the 40s, and a good chance of rain for Saturday evening, but with mostly sunny skies all week, who can complain?
Lets start our Valentine’s Day Weekend off Friday (2/10) with a great show at the Pikes Peak Center, the Colorado Springs Philharmonic presents Divas of the 60’s! Let’s talk about the REAL Divas of the 60’s: Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross, The Supremes, and others. Celebrate the music of these timeless women with Respect, Proud Mary, Son of a Preacher Man, and many more. With Thomas Wilson conducting, and Ta’Rea Campbell, Andrea Dora and Emily Drennan on vocals, this will be a show you won’t want to miss!
Saturday evening (2/11) we’ll be continuing with our Valentine’s Day theme at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort, where they’ll be hosting Randy’s St. Valentine’s Dance! An evening of music and dance with award- winning entertainer Randy Rodriguez performing the best of Sinatra, Michael Buble, timeless classics and party favorites. Singles, couples, and groups are all welcome to this event that sells out every year, so don’t miss your chance to mingle this Valentine’s Day weekend!
Sunday evening (2/12) brings us once again to the Millibo Art Theatre for another installment of the hilariously funny Babette! The indomitable Babette Matdiva and her sassy sister Louette are planning a huge show to celebrate the Valentines Day season. They’ve lined up an impressive cast of celebrity performers, but when bad weather threatens to foil all their plans, their weird and wonderful community steps forward to save the big night. Comediennes Birgitta De Pree and Hannah Rockey play all the parts in this hilarious new play that is part Carol Burnett, part Tina Fey and entirely for big laughs. Bring your friends, your lovers and your pals to see this ridiculous, heartwarming and very, very funny show!
Monday (2/13), Valentine’s Day Eve, why not treat your significant other to a gift they will never forget: a Valentine’s Day Helicopter Tour! Enjoy a romantic helicopter tour, exquisite scenery, a rose and chocolates, and excellent service with a Valentine's helicopter tour! You don't have to fly on Valentine's day to take advantage of this special tour, it is available for the entire month of February. Book any flight and receive $10 off per person as well as a rose and chocolates on any tour for the entire month of February!
Valentine’s Day (2/14) this year we’ll be swinging by Springs Rhythm for their Valentine’s Day Dinner event with live music and dancing, The Day We Met! You will be enjoying dinner with live music, Music from the 40's, 50's and 60's including live professional dancers, followed by a full hour of dancing. Enjoy one of Colorado’s newest Productions that is sure to keep your toes tapping and your dance feet begging for more!
Wednesday (2/15) will be a nice chance for adults visiting the Springs to unwind at Southside Johnny’s where they will be hosting their weekly This is a Clue trivia night! Play in teams of up to six, or by yourself if you want a real challenge. Winning teams get bar cash, street prizes, and of course, street cred among fellow trivia maniacs!
Wrapping up our week with Thursday evening (2/16), we’ll stop by the Lone Tree Arts Center for an amazing opportunity to see the Russian National Ballet perform ‘The Sleeping Beauty’! Considered the crown jewel of legendary choreographer Marius Petipa's career, The Sleeping Beauty is the magical fairy tale of the beautiful, sleeping princess who awaits the kiss of her prince. Brought to life by one of Moscow's finest ballet companies, this enchanting tale is set to Tchaikovsky's magnificent score under Artistic Director and former Bolshoi principal dancer Elena Radchenko. Luminous costumes, elaborate sets, and the graceful movements of these gifted Russian dancers result in a sublime performance of breathtaking artistry that you just can’t afford to miss!
