School’s back, which should remind us what Mr. T always said. Stay in school, eat your vegetables, dance like you’re in Brazil, and enjoy great movies and music every night. Okay, so maybe the immortal Mr. T didn’t say all of those things, but I pity the fool who don’t take that advice and enjoy this week. It’s time for, Around the SL,UT!

SLC Vegan Drinks MinglerAre you vegan, have vegan tendencies, or just want to try some great cruelty-free drinks and dishes? Head to W Lounge tonight (Friday) at 7pm for SLC Vegan Drinks and Potluck. Get to know the vegan community while tasting some tasty snacks and enjoying some cool music. Eat, drink, and be vegan!

Saturday, it’s time to get Brazilian! No, not get a Brazilian, but feel free to do that too. It’s the Brazilian Festival at Gateway from 1-7pm. Music, dancing, food, and plenty of South American excitement.

Salt Lake Film Society is 10 years old, and rather than having a Superman party with streamers and balloons, they’re showing 10 influential films from the past decade for only $10. 10 Films From 10 years runs through this week. Pick up your tickets at the Broadway or Tower Theatre, and you can see classics like Slumdog Millionaire, Brokeback Mountain, March of the Penguins, and more throughout this next week.

It’s a week of music ahead of us, although we don’t get a Willie Nelson/Snoop Dogg duet, they’re both in town. Willie Nelson is at Gallivan Center Tuesday, Sept 6, tickets are $40.
