This week's weather has been close to perfect. If you're not overcome with full-blown spring fever by now, you may be beyond help. Ready or not, the first day of spring is Monday, March 20th. A great way to celebrate its arrival is the 5th Annual Western Colorado Craft Beer Celebration!

It goes down this Saturday. March 18th from 2 p.m.- 6 p.m. at Edgewater Brewery, 905 Struthers, Grand Junction. Tickets are $20 and include a glass and unlimited samples. A portion of ticket sales goes to the Colorado Brewers Guild. Last year the event raised over $6,500. There are a limited number of tickets available. I'd suggest you buy yours in advance.

Just so you know, the forecast for Saturday is sun and clouds and afternoon high of 79. There are several local and regional breweries participating.

So even if your legs are pasty white, it'll be ok. Slip on the shorts and get out to celebrate the arrival of spring with a cold beer. The best cure for a severe case of spring fever.
