Hooray for the weekend!
What are your plans for your days off? Between Saturday morning errands and Sunday night football, members of the Desert Companion staff have some suggestions of what to see, what to watch and where to go for an interesting weekend.
Heidi Kyser's Picks:
Downtown Las Vegas Oktober fest at the Fifth Street School.
Watching "Everest," the film based on one of the deadliest climbing years for the world’s highest peak, in 3D with my hubby.
Brent Holmes' Picks:
Enjoy Su Limbert and Sierra Slentz's exhibition at Black Bird Studios.
Try Second Saturdays over at the Emergency Arts Center.
And finally, the current exhibition at P3: "Who Are You?" You are who? Are you you?
Scott Dickensheets' Picks:
I just visited the exhibit of downtown architecture photography at city hall:.
I’m planning on reading Claire Vaye Watkins' big-splash new novel.
Carrie Kaufman's Picks:
Ann Hampton Callaway, at the Smith Center for two shows on Saturday - 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.
The Henderson Triathlon, formerly called the Ironman 70.3 Silverman, will be making its way through the streets of Henderson on Sunday. It will start with a 1.2 mile swim in Lake Mead, followed by a 56 mile bike ride through the Lake Mead Recreation Area, and a 13.1 mile run through Henderson's residential areas. It will all end at the Henderson Pavilion, at Green Valley and Paseo Verde.
The Sweet Adelines are holding their annual convention in Las Vegas, Oct. 5-10. Their performances are open to the public. And we'll have last year's winning group on the air on Wednesday of next week.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
