Glad You Asked: Memorial Weekend To-Dos



Dear GYA, I hate to ask this, but I'm kind of at a loss for what to do this Memorial Day weekend. For starters, I've already watched the movie Sharknado like, 25 times, so don't even suggest it. Well, to be honest, I'm watching it right now and I also have a copy of it on my Galaxy S3--- in case I have to leave the room. Anyway, anything happening this weekend more interesting than a Sharknado? -Joe Biden---

Joe, Sharknados are truly amazing feats of science. Also, you should look into sharkicanes and tsharknamis. But here are a few other things happening this weekend that'll hold your interest. Let's start with Saturday's events:

-Jefferson Starship, which used to be Jefferson Airplane, will be onstage at the Egyptian Theatre in Park City tonight at 8. Tickets are $40 at the door. For more information, consult your school's library.

- The Moab Arts Festival will be happening all day today at Swanny City Park. Click here for the details.

- The B-Boy Federation Finals will be going down at the Utah Arts Alliance tonight at 6.
