In The Loop: 4/15/17. Snow In April, Baby Groot, And Easter I Guess

Cool events to check out from April 16-29.


Gotta be honest with you here: I'm getting tired as a Utah native of seeing snow beyond the month of March. I think we as a society need to just pause the calendar, or steal the Smarch idea from The Simpsons, push everything back a month and get back on track. It would certainly help everyone who complains about no snow happening in November and December.

I chose to talk about the weather here because talking about Easter isn't all that exciting, either. I'll just be drinking and playing video games on Sunday anyway, so I'm no authority. But I am an authority about local events, and we've got two weeks' worth for you to check out to finish out April. But first, here's a random picture of a Baby Groot cup being sold at theaters, so you can now drink out of his head.
