Hello there, fellow readers! This week we have some pretty exciting events coming up. If you’re in the mood for some inspirational talks, don’t hesitate on attending The Dalai Lama and TedxMileHigh events. If you’re more in the mood for some jams, check out B-Side Music at the MCA this Thursday. And if these events are not persuasive enough, check out the South Platte RiverFest and a special screening in memory of Muhammad Ali.
