Michelle Balleck: Sunshiny, lazy Labor Day weekend

With temperatures in the mid-80s and clear skies as far as the eye can see — or so the forecasters claim — it's a wonderful weekend to kick back, relax and enjoy an extra day off in observance of Labor Day.

I'll be on an airplane headed home for a family reunion, but maybe you could make that long overdue trip to the lake, head out to the wilderness for a hike and a camp trip, or just take a nap in the hammock. Oh, man, a hammock sure sounds nice.

And don't be bothered by events happening in town this weekend, because, well, there aren't any.

I suppose now that school's back in session, life has slowed down a bit, at least for those of us non-teachers.

■ If you're willing to make a short drive during your otherwise lazy weekend, Steamboat Springs features some bull-riding action and "Amazing Race" star Cord McCoy competing during the PBR Rocky Mountain Bull Bash on Sunday.

The event starts at 5 p.m. Sunday at the Brent Romick Rodeo Arena, 401 Howelsen Parkway, with the gates opening at 3 p.m.

Tickets cost $25 for arena floor seating and $30 for covered grandstand seating. Buy yours at Murdoch's Ranch & Home Supply in Craig or F.M. Light & Sons and the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association in Steamboat.

Yee haw.

■ On the big screen this weekend, West Theatre has "Eat Pray Love" — I saw it and was disappointed, but it's one I think you've still got to check out — and, held over from last week, "The Expendables."

Redbox has "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" and "The General's Daughter" new this week.

Other than that, you're free to do as you wish. Enjoy.
