Glad You Asked: Billy Dean, Tour de France and Wicked

Dear GYA, OK, did I outsource the 2002 Olympic uniforms to Burma? Yeeesss. But come on, that's where all the good stuff is made, am I right? I mean, gosh darn it, I just figured Burma would be the best place to pick up some sweet winter outerwear. ---Anyway, I've got a whole bunch of these American flags made in ... eh, some country I can't pronounce -- that need to be handed out. Any suggestions? - Mitt Romney

Mitt, don't worry. Those 2002 Salt Lake City Olympic uniforms were awesome. All that purple-and-orange polyester -- it couldn't have possibly been made here in the U.S., we just don't have the technology. Here are some good places to hand out your flags:

Country singer Billy Dean will be performing at the Ogden Amphitheater tonight. Back in 1989, the Florida native was first spotted on the hit show Star Search and since then, Dean has put out numerous Billboard country hits and has worked with Allison Kraus, Lonestar, Kenny Rogers and Tom Shapiro, to name a few. The show starts at 8 p.m.

Since most of you aren't in France, the Megaplex 12 will be hosting viewing of the 2012 Tour de France. Besides watching the world-class event on the big screen, there will be tons of free prizes and free coffee and snacks from Corner Bakery. The race starts at 6:30 a.m.

See the return of the Broadway hit Wicked tonight at the Capitol Theatre. Based on the the book The Wizard of OZ, the musical follows the story behind the Wicked Witch of The West and her popular sister The Good Witch of The North. If you can't make it tonight, relax -- the musical will be running through August 26. Tonight's show starts at 7:30 p.m.     

Other worthwhile events happening tonight: 

- Head to Brio Italian for Brio Patio Night. There will be plenty of cheap appys and live music. Check in with City Weekly's The Word for free prizes and swag! The patio opens at 5 p.m.  

- The Big Shiny Geek Show Pub Quiz will be going down at Lucky 13, starting at 8 p.m.  

- The Park City Farmers Market will kick off today at noon.
