What to do this weekend, Feb. 5-7

Vermont blues duo Dwight & Nicole is live-streaming its concert from the UVM Recital hall on Friday night.

We almost made it! The weekend is nearly upon us. Make use of the slightly warmer weather and get out — for a hike, a trip to the museum, or dinner at a local restaurant.

Purchase a family pass so you can make use of the trails at Arrowhead Golf Course. And check out where you can watch the Super Bowl and order game day snacks from this Sunday.
