It’s too bad February is the shortest month of the year, because it’s one of the best of the year … and we’re already a week into it. Here are 10 events in February that we don’t want to miss:1) People affected by multiple sclerosis and snow enthusiasts are invited to raise money and MS awareness at the Vertical Express for MS in Lionshead and Golden Peak on Feb. 12, from 7 a.m. 5 p.m. This event actually happens at 22 resorts nationwide, but our local event will be huge.2) The Vail Valley Theatre Company presents “An Evening On Broadway” at the Vilar Center in Beaver Creek. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. on both Feb. 12 and 13, and tickets are $55.This year’s show promises to be delightfully wicked it will feature Broadway song and dance that teems with the seven deadly sins.3) Rebirth Brass Band will blow the roof off Checkpoint Charlie at the Budweiser Street Beat in Vail on Wednesday, Feb. 16 from 6 8 p.m. A good ol’ N’Orleans brass band is tough to beat (bust out that oh-so-liberating hippy dance).
