Prospect Sound Bites presents Intuit @ Prospect Park | Longmont | Colorado | United States

Intuit is a successful little band with a big purpose based in Boulder, Colorado. If you’ve ever been to an Intuit show…you know. These songs are sound waves organized with intention and love. This is music to bring us out of our heads and into our hearts. This is music to dissolve separation and bring communities together. Braiding sounds from many cultures, Intuit weaves an auditory tapestry of reggae, blues, African poly-rhythm, folk, funk and jazz. Prospect Sound Bites is a free outdoor concert series that runs in Prospect New Town on Monday nights throughout the summer. Food, beer and wine sales are available at the event. No backpacks or dogs please.

Dinosaur Discoveries: Ancient Fossils, New Ideas @ Longmont Museum & Cultural Center.  Runs June 3-Jan 14 | Longmont | Colorado | United States

The Longmont Museum’s hands-on summer exhibition series for families is back with an engaging show that reveals what living, breathing dinosaurs were really like! This exhibition highlights current research by scientists from the American Museum of Natural History and other leading paleontologists around the world. Visitors will see real bones from a T-Rex found in Littleton and a soil sample of the K-T boundary, which shows the point in time 65 million years ago when the asteroid that caused mass extinction of the dinosaurs hit the Earth. Kids can get their hands dirty excavating bones in our dinosaur dig pit and feed our brood of chickens – the feathered, living descendants of dinosaurs! Learn more at www.longmontmuseum.org or call 303-651-8374.

Jack Gwydion @ Still Cellars
Aug 23 all-day
Jack Gwydion @ Still Cellars | Longmont | Colorado | United States

Welcome back to our normal tasting room hours! We are delighted to return from our couple weeks off and welcome this brave fresh talent for his Still Cellars’ debut!

Jack Gwydion is a fifth-generation Coloradan, hailing from the mountain town of Crested Butte. He lives to sense the beating heart of poetry in the city and in the forest, and has long admired musicians with small-town sincerity and big-world humanity. Aware these are terrifying, desperate times— and aware music has been a tonic and vehicle for soul-remembrance in times of great upheaval— Gwydion promotes the generosity of spirit behind all that is good in his home country and the world beyond. His series of debut singles this year claimed praise from American Songwriter Magazine, saying “the mountainous landscape works itself into [his] songs”. Gwydion pays tribute to the energy of his home state, while speaking to the timeless mysteries of the heart.

As per our grand tradition… the tasting room will be open from 4pm – 8:30ish, and music will flow from around 6:30pm – 8:30ish. There is no cover, and you’re welcome to bring your own snacks/picnic. We’ll be slinging our stupendous spirits for your organic sipping pleasure!

Knock on Wood Smokehouse at 350 Terry St @ St Vrain Cidery | Longmont | Colorado | United States

What Roaming Hunger has to say about Knock On Wood Smokehouse:
“Knock On Wood Smokehouse is giving Denver classic barbecue, done the hard way and done the delicious way – with a host of smoky, southern flavors that pair beautifully with the food truck’s scratch-made sauces. It’s a level of bbq perfection on wheels that Colorado’s never seen, and it’s serving it in bold new forms.

Pulled pork is the crown jewel of everything Knock On Wood does so well, and it’s the key component in a huge swath of dishes. From sliders to mac & cheese to loaded fries, there’s no limit to how you can get your piglet in. Knock On Wood’s also available for private gigs, so the next time your cookout needs an inventive, elevated take on bbq, look no further. Knock On Wood’s here to show you how it’s done.

MUST TRY:
The Masterpiece – Mac & Cheese gets smoked to kingdom come and piled high with juicy, tender pulled pork. We’d tell you more but from there – we tend to black out.”
