As so many weekends are, this one is too full of interesting stuff for our print edition to hold it all. Here are more recommendations for where to go and what to see. ---

This Saturday, March 5, 2 p.m. - 3:30 p.m., the Main Library hosts a reception for the exhibit Yume Wo Shinjiru (Believe in Dreams). Shireen Al-Zahawi's drawings, influenced by the Japanese manga style (pictured), will be on display on the library's second level through April 3.

Tonight and tomorrow night (March 4-5), Park City's Egyptian Theatre hosts the S.E.L.L.O.U.T. Comedy Tour. The acronym means "serious, educated, laughing, learning, outrageous, unique, talented," but it's also an accusation that has been leveled at one time or another at every one of the three African-American comedians who will be performing. Vince Morris, Billy D. Washington and BT will bring their individual talents to the stage, before joining forces in the finale that encourages audience members to "Ask a Black Man Anything." Tickets are $23 at the door, showtime 8:30 p.m. nightly.

What combines the fun of snowriding with the anxiety of driving through a construction zone? The SLUG Games' "Construction to Destruction" event, taking place Saturday (March 5) at Brighton Resort. Barrels, barriers and "Road Closed" signs will pepper the course for skiers and snowboarders looking for a fun, unique challenge. Registration is free, but limited to the first 100 applicants beginning at 9 a.m.; discounted lift tickets will be available.
