The end of March is already here, and somehow it felt like it went by even quicker than February.  Before we say goodbye to March and head towards the springtime in April, let’s take a look at some last minute events to squeeze in before the month is out.


The Five “Mother Sauces” Cooking Class on March 28th will teach what the bases is for all great sauces.  Hosted at the Food Lab from 6-9pm for $79 per person, this class is the perfect first step for learning how to make any classic sauce on your own.  The five mother sauces being taught are Bechamel, Espagnole, Hollandaise, Tomato and Veloute.  Because this class is sauce focused, a proper meal isn’t going to be made.  However, the amount of tasting and snacking is sure to be enough to fill anyone up.


Also on the 28th is the weekly Geeks Who Drink trivia night at Harpo’s Sports Grill.  For anyone who has done trivia at other bars, this one is very similar, and if you’ve never done trivia then this is a great one to start with.  Teams of up to six will attempt to answer almost 70 questions from all forms of media and entertainment over 8 rounds.  Three of these rounds are themed, and change every week so it’s always exciting no matter how frequently you play, plus a music, TV/ Movie audio, and visual round.  It’s free to participate, but being in a bar you are of course encouraged to support your local business.


I know I suggested a film last week too, but I couldn’t resist recommending the Boulder Theater’s movie night this week as well.  And because they’re showing Back to the Future on the 31st, I don’t think you can blame me.  This wide reaching film has touched the hearts and minds of people for over 30 years, and has even been added to the National Film Registry.  Whether you’re reliving the magic for the 10th time or more, or are introducing it to a new audience, the chance to see it on the big screen like it was intended is by far the best way to do it.  Tickets are just $5 and is open to all ages, so even the kids can experience this classic.

Jesse graduated from CU Boulder in 2014 with an English degree in Creative Writing. He has been writing independently ever since a high school teacher inspired him with a simple assignment to write whatever he wanted after struggling to follow a writing prompt. Since then, Jesse has been writing every day and continues to work on getting his writing published. It was that one spark that sent Jesse on a path not just toward pursuing his own writing, but to go into education in the hopes of awakening a similar passion in others. To keep his creative juices flowing, and keep a healthy balance, he also enjoys exercise of almost every kind and keeping a healthy diet. In his free time he enjoys seeking out new and interesting stories of all kinds, watching foreign media, and sometimes just relaxing and looking out the window for a while. Since coming to Boulder at the age of 3, Jesse has found no shortage of inspiration here.
