19 Thursday

The self-proclaimed "high-fi Latin exotica," nine-piece, small big-band Cabaret Diosa will be at 32 Bleu, 32 S. Tejon St., tonight to make you mambo, cha-cha-cha and generally lose control of your pelvis region. Doors at 9 p.m. It's $8 at the door and it's an over-21 show. Call 955-5664.

Just a couple blocks north you'll find spunky punkers The Rompers making mischief at The Underground, 110 N. Nevada Ave., with fellow band The Rightaways. The show starts at 8:30 p.m. It's $3 for those 21 and up, $5 for those under 21. Call 633-0590.

20 Friday

All heavy metal jokes aside, Aaron Snyder's large, abstract, heavy metal sculptures will be on display in the lobby of the Antlers Adam's Mark Hotel (4 S. Cascade Ave.) beginning with tonight's opening reception from 5 to 9 p.m. Snyder is currently studying and working at the Chicago Institute of Art.

Tonight at 8 and tomorrow at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. at the Pikes Peak Center, the Colorado Springs Symphony Orchestra will perform "A Colorado Winter's Evening" featuring the vocal ensemble Five By Design. Tickets range from $10 to $45. Call 633-6698.

21 Saturday

Today, or any day between now and Jan. 1, take your video camera and/or your 8mm camera and go out and film grocery bags swirling poetically in the wind like that stoner in American Beauty did. Or, make a film about squirrel mating rituals with the squirrels dressed up in Napoleon and Lana Turner outfits. Point is, there's only 10 days left before the Jan. 1 deadline for submissions to the Third Annual Pikes Peak Passion Film Festival, which will be some time in February. Make sure your film is 20 minutes or less and involves someone or something in the Pikes Peak region (squirrels, for example) and mail (or drop off) a copy to Toons Music and Video, 802 N. Nevada. There's no charge to enter. E-mail

pppff@toonsmusic.com or call 389-1468 for more.

22 Sunday

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

23 Monday

Even more so today.

24 Tuesday

By gum, I'm opening my presents today!

25 Wednesday

Hanukkah sure was early this year! And Christmas sure is a lot like Thanksgiving when you open your presents the night before.
