2 Do: Our picks for top activities in the Vail Valley today
1. Enjoy an evening with Sarah Jarosz — Since signing to Sugar Hill Records at age 16, Sarah Jarosz has barely stopped to catch her breath. Rolling Stone has compared her to Gillian Welch; Mojo labeled her a “newgrass prodigy” for her skills on banjo, guitar and mandolin; and The New York Times hailed her as “one of acoustic music’s finest talents.” Jarosz headlines Vail’s free Summer Bluegrass Series tonight at the Arrabelle at Vail Square starting at 5 p.m.
2. Take an art walk — The town of Vail’s free Art Walk meets at 11 a.m. today at the Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum and winds its way through the village with discussions of the history of the Vail Valley, the founding of Vail Mountain, the master planning of the village and the importance of site-specific art. The town’s public art collection includes 45 works ranging from painting, sculptures, murals, playground components to site-integrated art.
A string of American tourist deaths at a hotel in the Dominican Republic has flung a Colorado couple into the center of attention a year after the two became ill while staying at the hotel.
