KUSA – If last weekend's winter weather has you yearning to leave the confines of your home this coming weekend, have no fear! There's a lot going on!
Also of note, though? It's supposed to snow again (which tends to happen when it's winter).
So regardless of if you choose to venture to the mountains, enjoy some food in Fort Collins and Denver, vicariously watch people go on adventures or just lock yourself in your house and watch Netflix, enjoy this snowy, wintry weekend.
After all: you might just miss it come spring.
'Wonder Bread Years' – Feb. 28 – Greeley http://bit.ly/1DUMsKq
You hear so much about all the ridiculous stuff millennials do that you forget that it's also possible to laugh at Baby Boomers. You can do just that though at Monfort Concert Hall during this one-man show featuring Seinfeld writer Pat Hazell. Tickets range from $19 to $38. If you're thinking about bringing your infant, don't: kids two and under aren't admitted to this performance.
Great Plates of Downtown – Starts March 1 – Fort Collins http://noconow.co/1ALsGPa
Fort Collins is rapidly becoming one of Colorado's food destinations. And for the first two weeks in March, you can sample some of these great culinary creations while helping a good cause. Each restaurant will offer a $25 dining menu option, which includes dinners for two. Others will offer breakfast deals for $2.50. These discounts are meant to inspire folks to donate an additional amount to the Food Bank for Larimer County, which hopes to raise $60,000 this year. Keep in mind: a $10 donation feeds 40 people.
Banff Mountain Film Festival – Feb. 27 – Denver http://bit.ly/1al1Che
If the weather this weekend makes going on your own adventure tough, live vicariously through other daredevils during the Banff Mountain Film Festival. Watch adventurers go to crazy places, paddle the wildest water and climb the highest peaks. Trust me when I say: this show is super cool. Tickets start at $17.
Splash & Dash Polar Plunge and 5K – Feb. 28 – City Park http://bit.ly/1Be2dM0
Sure, you can slog through another workout at the gym surrounded by all the totally "swoll" bros … or you could get burn some calories outside … after a plunge into freezing water for good measure. The plunge supports the Special Olympics Colorado. Registration for the 5k is $40. Watching other folks suffer is free.
Denver Restaurant Week – Ends March 1 – Various locations http://denv.co/1BVVisl

For just $30 per person, you can impress many a Tinder date at some of Denver's coolest restaurants with an impressive multi-course dinner. To check out menus and make reservations, check out the link above. Be warned: for many of the top spots, you might be stuck eating really early or really late if you haven't already made a reservation.
Last weekend of Winter on Mountain – Ends March 1 – Glenwood Springs http://bit.ly/1ERf59O

A Winter Funday Pass runs for $39 for adults and $34 for kids.

If winter has you dreaming about summer, you can get a head start on checking out uniquely summer things at the RV Sports, Boat and Travel Show. Tickets are $10 for adults and free for kids under 12. In addition to seeing sweet boats (if you're a How I Met Your Mother fan, you can read that as "Boats, boats, boats!") and tricked out RVs, you can also get some vacation ideas and take in some seminars.
Parker Symphony Orchestra: Festive Celebration – Feb. 27 – PACE Center http://bit.ly/1zfmueu

The concert starts at 7:30 p.m., and tickets range from $20 to $25, depending on how good of a seat you want (shocker, we know).
