Allison’s picks for Aug. 4-10
¤ Fabric, Furniture and Furnishings
When: 5 to 7 p.m. tonight opening reception, 9 to 10:30 a.m. Saturday Gallery Talk with the Artists, exhibit on display through September 17. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
Where: The Depot Art Center, 1001 13th St.
Why you should go: Aren’t you curious about what a hand-crafted chair that costs $15,000 looks like?
¤ Self defense class
When: 9 to 5 p.m.
Where: Steamboat Springs Middle School wrestling room
Cost: $20. Must call 879-2034 to register.
Why you should go: So you feel more powerful and sure of yourself when confronted with danger. You can also gain confidence and empowerment while having fun and kicking butt!
¤ Stroll of Steamboat — Grand Tasting
When: 4 to 7 p.m.
Where: The courthouse, downtown Steamboat Springs
Why you should go: Because you get to sip and sample 250 different wine selections at a variety of restaurants, shops and outdoor areas throughout downtown. You shouldn’t need any more reasons than that.
¤ Emerald City Opera presents “Letters for Mozart: Life and Love Through his Operas”
When: 3 p.m.
Where: Steamboat Springs High School auditorium
Cost: $18 to $66
Why you should go: Because you have the opportunity to see an opera in Steamboat Springs! Mozart is obviously brilliant and I heard these opera singers rehearsing and they sounded amazing. Some of them are from The Metropolitan Opera, which Keri Rusthoi said is the equivalent of winning a gold medal at the Olympics for orchestra musicians and singers.

Where: Meet at the Tread of Pioneers Museum
Cost: $50 for adults, $10 for children 7 to 12 and free for children 6 and younger
Why you should go: I went and I learned so much about our local ranching heritage. It was fascinating and gives you insight into a different culture and into the past. Plus, they give you Routt-Beer floats!
