The multitalented Aurora Fox Theatre Company presents the Colorado debut of The Wedding Singer, choreographed and directed by Emmy nominee Mandy Moore of Fox's So You Think You Can Dance. Based on the 1998 Adam Sandler film of the same name, The Wedding Singer is a charming and energetic musical comedy that follows the romantic trials of New Jersey wedding singer and rock-star wannabe Robbie Hart in the year 1985. As Hart attempts to woo Julia, a beautiful and kind waitress, away from her boorish fiancé, the cast will kick into the sweet sounds of original songs, including "Somebody Kill Me," "Grow Old with You," and a three-hour version of "Mambo No. 5." Also codirected by Moore’s sister Missy, this production promises to push the creative boundaries of typical community theater, as the stage will be set on a special rotating carousel, the script will be rife with '80s nostalgia, and the entire story will be narrated by Batman as he slowly sips on a glass of Scotch.

There's real science behind each sip of beer from?Coda Brewing Co. That's all thanks to Luke?Smith, a former yeast microbiologist who designs the brewery's fruit beers, double IPAs, sours, and other experimental varieties. Smith previously worked in a University of Colorado laboratory, often stopping?by?Cedar Creek Pub?for a pint?on his way home.?That's where he met?Cedar Creek?president?Scott Procop?the man with whom he'd eventually create?Coda's beer-science concept.

Since opening Coda across the street from Cedar Creek, Smith has made a name for his beers by tapping into his scientific expertise. He incorporates unique yeast strains in brews like the?Sleepyhead Imperial Passionfruit Kolsh, which won the Silver Award?at the Great American Beer Festival in 2014. The scientific theme carries over to the brewery's glassware?sampler flights, for instance, are served in beakers by bartenders cackling with mad-scientist laughter. But despite all this science, Smith still has a soft spot for?the arts, creating beers inspired by the music of some of his favorite bands.

Pool. Karaoke. Poker. Live music. While The Office regularly hosts events like these, they're always secondary to the sports bar's twin passions: sports and beer. The latest games play on a variety of TVs, including one 120-inch viewing screen, and the bar always has more than 24 craft beers on tap, including Dubhe hemp beer, as well as a wide selection of martinis and everything from mussels and shepherd's pie to cheeseburgers and wings to munch on. What's more, it's a dog-friendly spot with two large dog-friendly patios, which means that owners and canines can watch soccer?or "dalmatian ball," as dogs call it?together.
