I'll be out of town visiting family this weekend, but for those of you sticking around, there are a few things to keep you occupied.

■ Moffat County High School prom is this weekend.

Feel free to pull out your tux. Of course, please don't plan to attend unless you're a teenager.

■ Serendipity Coffee Shop hosts Open Mic Night on Friday.

Show up at 6:30 p.m. if you're interested in performing or 7 p.m. if you want to sip coffee and have a listen.

Drop by 576 Yampa Ave. to check it out.
