Butler's choice: The Dead, Civic Park celebrates culture & Mother's Day
The remaining members of the Grateful Dead play the Pepsi Center, Denver celebrates Cinco de Mayo at Civic Park and the Boulder Ballet offers "Beauty and the Beast" for Mother's Day. By Mary Butler

Aussie reds (and a few whites)
Australia enjoys one of the most prolific wine cultures in the world - but it hasn't always been that way. Mites nearly destroyed Australia's wine industry... also, check out Strange fruit: Wine in weird places, last week's Wine Wench column on the growing availability of wine in unconventional places (ColoradoBiz failed to include the story's link in the last A&E newsletter). By Cathie Beck

Getting personal at the airport
The Transportation Security Administration will soon require you to provide your full name, date of birth and gender to the airline when making a reservation - and providing this Secure Flight information won't be optional. By Robert Polk
