Pub Crawl
Even in Utah you can celebrate great craft beer while you wander the streets of Sugar House. It's American Craft Beer Week and 10 watering holes plus the Sugar House Chamber are teaming up to host the 2nd Annual Sugar House Pub Crawl. A portion of the funds raised will purchase much-needed educational classroom supplies from Lakeshore Learning for the Sugar House Boys & Girls Club. Get passports at each location and bring them stamped to Monument Plaza by 5 p.m. for a prize drawing. Local rock group Quiet Oaks performs from 4 to 6 p.m. Ten Sugar House locations to start (listed online), 801-448-7292, Saturday, May 21, noon-5 p.m., free, no purchase necessary, SugarHouseChamber.org

Here's a chance for special needs and general students, their families and educators to collaborate on projects in dance, drama, music and visual art. The annual Utah Inclusive Arts Festival works with Tanner Dance at the University of Utah, independent arts educators and special educators to provide an experience in which workshops culminate in a public "informance" by participants. Re-licensure points available. 1721 Center Campus Drive, 801-721-8421, Saturday, May 21, 9 a.m.-12 p.m., $18 registration fee covers entry, materials and T-shirt; TannerDance.Utah.edu

Public Meeting on Coal
Make your voice heard on an issue that affects the air, jobs and the presidential election. The Bureau of Land Management is soliciting public input from six meetings, where the public will be able to help identify and evaluate potential reforms to the Federal Coal Program. This is part of a formal, comprehensive review of the federal coal program. The BLM is particularly interested in gathering public input on issues such as whether Americans are receiving a fair return for federal coal, how market conditions affect coal, how federal coal affects the environment and how these and other factors impact coal-dependent communities. Salt Palace Convention Center, 100 West Temple, Friday, May 19, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., free, open to public, On.doi.gov/1NQBrfL
