Do Yoga at Mount Charleston, Drink for Charity

This week in your city

THU 11

The Art of Happiness and Fulfillment,” an interactive workshop and lecture, 6:45 p.m. at Henderson’s Gibson Library, will teach you the skills and habits common to happy people.

FRI 12

Greeks enjoy life. Even when their economy isn’t doing so hot. They eat, drink, dance and cook. Perhaps we can learn something by their example. The Opa at Divine Greek and Mediterranean Cooking Class, 6:30 p.m. at Springs Preserve, might be a good start. You’ll get hands-on instruction, plus beer and wine!

SAT 13

Wine, food, entertainment … our kind of evening. Add partying for charity to the mix and you’ve got One Drunk Puppy, 6 p.m. at the Silverton. Proceeds benefit the Animal Foundation; good times benefit you.

SUN 14

Yoga is best practiced in the great outdoors, and the outdoors don’t get much greater than Mount Charleston. Confirm that for yourself at the Meadows at Lee Canyon, 10 a.m., for Yoga at Mount Charleston, a monthly practice led by Yogi Nashi. Check Yoga @ Mt. Charleston Facebook page for details.

MON 15

Meanwhile, over at the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art, Yousuf Karsh: Icons of the Twentieth Century is ending September 5. This intimate view of leading figures in politics, arts and entertainment during Hollywood’s Golden Age provides a glimpse at a kind of glamour we just don’t see anymore.

TUE 16

The baseball season is winding down, and you still haven’t been out to Cashman Center to catch the Las Vegas 51s? For shame. Remedy that as our hometown team hosts the Round Rock Express in the first of a four-game series, 7:05 p.m.

WED 17

Social CirKISH is a program for at-risk youth that teaches skills such as empathy, teamwork and self-confidence through circus performances. It’s a unique and effective way to reach a tough audience. UNLV’s CirKISH student showcase will demonstrate at 7 p.m., UNLV’s Ham Hall.
