The temperature is heating up, and Salt Lake is overflowing with things to do this week. The Renaissance Fest & Fantasy Faire is still going on up north, UrineTown playing at The Grand, and then we’ve got some more highlights below.

Our Real Salt Lake are in action Saturday night. Come see the hottest team in U.S. soccer as they take on Houston Dynamo at 7pm. Tickets start at $25 day of the game. Here’s a great idea, start your night at Lucky 13 to enjoy $3 PBR and $3 Sauza Tequila, and great burgers with house-smoked bacon. Then catch TRAX down to Sandy for the game.

Want to be in a music video for one of my favorite bands? Paul Jacobsen & the Madison Arm are filming a music video at Piper Down on Tuesday, May 17. Head over to Piper Down and settle in for a great dinner, $3 steins, and be a part of this great moment in music.

Who doesn’t love Bill Murray? Geeks Who Drink is celebrating the career of this funny man with a special themed quiz Tuesday, May 17. $5 entry per player qualifies you and your teammates for a $200+ cash prize if your Peter Venkman knowledge tops the rest of the crowd. Get up to 6 players for your team, and be at The Huddle before 8pm with cash in hand. Great food, $3 Shiner Bock steins, and a great time full of laughs as I host a quiz from SNL and Caddyshack to Fantastic Mr. Fox and beyond. Arrive early for best seats. Several great prizes throughout the night.

Going local isn’t a fad or a buzzword, it’s a strategy to repair our fractured world. This is the premise of The Economics of Happiness, a new film that examines how local economics are improving our lives. It will show at Brewvies, Thursday, May 19 at 7pm. Tickets are $6 Q&A afterward with locals who are helping to drive this movement.
