PGA Senior Championship comes to Parker

Three damn good whites, three damn good reasons
We know most of the attributes of white wine (versus red), not the least of which is that white wine tastes good cold. And red wine cold? Not so much. The coolness, the potential citrus and light buttery feel to many white wines all add up to characteristics perfect for a hot summer evening. By Cathie Beck

Levon Helm opens for John Prine at Red Rocks
Levon Helm, drummer and signature singer from The Band, was sidelined by throat cancer in 1998. Now he’s released his second solo album in two years and will perform Saturday at Red Rocks Amphitheatre with John Prine. Plus check out Marcia Ball’s free show in Louisville. By Mike Cote

By Mary Butler
