Glad You Asked: Weekend Edition

Posted By on August 31, 2012, 12:00 PM

Dear GYA, Good God, it appears that the turd is finally circling the bowl. I'm so relieved MTV has finally canceled Jersey Shore. Well, so long, Snooki, you orange-tinted gelatinous pile of make-up and sound bites. Now that I no longer have to fear the threat of Jersey Shore marathons, anything good happening this weekend? - Stacey Shlockenberger, Heber City---

Stacey, get your celebrating in quick. I'm sure MTV will replace Jersey Shore with some other form of quality programming revolving around fist pumping. Here's what's going down tonight: 

Let's start with Friday:

- The annual Antelope Island Stampede Festival will be going on all day at Antelope Island State Park.  

- Grammy award-winning musician Bruce Hornsby will be performing at the Sandy Amphitheater at 8 p.m.

- The Salt Lake Bees will be taking on the Sacramento River Cats at 7:05 p.m. 

- Stand-up comedian April Macie will be onstage at Wiseguys Trolley Square at 7:30 p.m.  

- Also, funnyman Josh Konokalfi will be at Wiseguys Ogden at 8 p.m.  

As for Saturday's to-dos:

- At the Miller Motorsports Park, check out the Bonneville Vintage Grand Prix going on all day.

- The Snowbird Oktoberfest will be crushing it all day. Admission is free.

- The Krishna Temple will be hosting the Great Salt Lake Yoga Fest, beginning at 9 a.m.  

- Learn all about the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center at Rose Exposed, from 9 a.m.- 7p.m.   

- The School of Seven Bells and the Beachman will be onstage at Urban Lounge. Doors open at 9 p.m.

- Weber County Main Library will be showing a free screening of The Avengers at 2 p.m. 

And Sunday's events:

- City Weekly, TrueTV, Red Rock Brewery and Brewvies will be offering up a free screening of the latest Breaking Bad episode. The show starts at 8 p.m.   

- At the Main Library, check out the Craft Sabbath: September Boutique, beginning at 1 p.m. 

- In Park City, peep the Park Silly Sunday Market, starting at 10 a.m.

- The Gallivan Center will be hosting the Salt Lake City International Jazz Festival, starting at 1 p.m.
