Sit back and enjoy the jazz.

Sip your coffee and groove to the beat.

Bring your luck to American Legion Post 62 bingo Friday night, which features a drawing for a .25-06 rifle.

I don’t know what that is but if you like guns, bingo’s worth checking out this week.

Rivals face off Friday night as the Moffat County High School Bulldog football team battles the Steamboat Springs High School Sailors.

It all goes down at 7 p.m. Friday on the Bulldogs’ home turf, 900 Finley Lane.

It’s a feel-good weekend at West Theatre as “Secretariat” is held over a second week and “Megamind” is featured in its first week out.

“Megamind” features the voices of Will Ferrell, Tina Fey and Brad Pitt and looks entertaining for the whole family.

Redbox now has “A Nightmare on Elm Street” and “Toy Story 3.”
