The expression about March coming in like a lion and going out like a lamb or vice-versa doesn’t always apply to Northwest Colorado. Since the last week has had both leonine and ovine characteristics, you’ve got to be prepared for anything this month.

Fortunately, most of the upcoming activities for the next few days take place indoors.

• While not everyone appreciates the sounds of classical music, surely the performers of the latest segment of the Craig Concert Association’s season will have enough variety in their repertoire to string you along.

The Bottom Line Duo, a bass and cello combo, will play at 7 p.m. Friday at Moffat County High School auditorium, 900 Finley Lane. Providing both chamber music and modern hits, the pair offer an enjoyable night out for everyone in the audience.

If you’re already a CCA member, your admission is taken care of, while the ticket price for non-members is $20.

For more information, visit craigconcerts.com or call 824-5251.

• If your kids don’t like the sound of sitting through a night of culture, perhaps there’s a better option.

Grand Futures will host a movie night for the younger crowd Friday night at Craig Middle School, 915 Yampa Ave., showing the family film “Mr. Popper’s Penguins.” Admission is $3, and teens and tweens can enjoy the movie with some refreshments.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and the movie begins at 6:30.

Remember, your kids will need to be picked up at about 8:15, so coordinate carefully.

For more information, call 824-5752.

• Have you been planning to add a new member to your family? Now is the perfect time.

The Humane Society of Moffat County hosts “Second Chance Saturday” from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Craig Animal Shelter, 2430 E. Victory Way. Find and adopt a new furry friend for $60. The price tag includes getting your newly rescued dog or cat the run of tests and treatments before you take it home.

And remember, the nomination process has begun for the Humane Society 2013 calendar. Submit your pet’s cutest pictures by May 1 for consideration by the group, who will choose the top 24 for voting by the community.

For more information, call 620-2014 or email the organization at humanesocietyofmoffatcounty@yahoo.com.

• If you’ve yet to check out the Moffat County Tourism Association’s new digs, there’s no time like the present.

MCTA will host an open house from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in honor of its new location in the Centennial Mall, 1111 W. Victory Way, Suite 117. Check out the displays capturing all the wonder of the region and swap stories with the people who love it.

The free event will also be followed by a complementary reception for the folks who made the move possible.

The public is welcome to attend at any point during the day. For more information, call 824-2335.

• West Theatre will keep “Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax 3D” for another week, so whether you’re watching it for the first, second or third time, it’s always fun talking in rhyme. Clearly, I’m not up to snuff with Seuss’ style of writing children’s stuff.

Hmm, make that definitely.

Making its debut on the big screen is Disney’s tale of an Earthling on a distant planet in “John Carter,” so prepare your warp drive.

New to DVD are the mythological action feature “Immortals,” in addition to “Tooth Fairy 2.” The movie that really didn’t need a sequel really didn’t need to replace The Rock with none other than Larry the Cable Guy.

Your money may be better spent on newly released special editions of classics like “The Deer Hunter,” “The Town,” “To Catch a Thief” or “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”

In case you didn’t get enough of Adam Sandler’s he/she act in theaters, you can find “Jack and Jill” at Redbox this week. You can also get your toes tapping with “Footloose,” enjoy young love in “Like Crazy” or celebrate the return of Catherine Zeta-Jones in “The Rebound.”

If you’re looking for something weird and smart at the same time, take in Antonio Banderas in the Spanish-language “The Skin I Live In,” about a deranged plastic surgeon trying to create the perfect epidermis. Creepy, maybe, but the “Zorro” actor has many facets to his personality.
