Pancakes and punk

How about some bacon with that mohawk? This Sat., Aug 24, one of Durango’s beloved but alas short-lived underground traditions of yore returns. Punk Rock Breakfast moshes into J. Bo’s starting at 9 a.m.

The event, which old schoolers may recall from its Storyville and Thirteens heyday, was resurrected by local woman, Ann Potter. This will be the third PRB (not to be confused with PBR, of which many will likely be consumed) she has put on.

Bands include Molly Nixons, Profetic Calaveras, Hardly Cant’s, Timothy Hallow and Q&A.

Both the San Juan National Forest and La Plata County enacted Stage I fire restrictions this week. Open burning is banned on all lands in unincorporated La Plata County as well as national forest lands. The bans prohibit:

There’s something in the water. This week, the City of Durango announced the opening of the brand spanking new Wibit Aqua Park at Lake Nighthorse. Think of the interconnected series of blow-up play structures as a floating jumpy castle on steroids.
