Friday, July 19
Food: TGIF! Stopping out to JazzFest this weekend? Swing by Starz restaurant and bar before or after the shows to check out their improved “stadium food” menu. Options include Kaufhold’s Kurds, tator tot nachos or green bean casserole and new salads or sandwiches at the sports bar on 57th and Western.

Event: Students from Children’s Care Hospital & School, along with trained dancers and adults, will present a mixed-ability theatrical performance this weekend at Augustana College’s Edith Mortenson Theatre. “Vita” will include 29 dancers of all ages and will begin at 7:30 p.m. today and 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday.

Food: It’s a big weekend, so we need to keep our energy up! Start your weekend with a healthy brunch at Camille’s Sidewalk Cafe on 41st Street. Try their Sunrise Natu-Wraps, featuring scrambled eggs, Jasmine rice and fresh vegetables, or consider another wrap from the menu or bakery items.

Event: On your marks! The music at JazzFest obviously gets all the attention, but don’t forget to either participate or watch the annual JazzFest 5K Run/Walk. The race begins at 8 a.m. at Yankton Trail Park, and packet pickup begins at 7. Cost is $30 to register, and proceeds from the race will benefit Sioux Falls Jazz and Blues education. Winners will be announced on that Main Stage that afternoon and on Sunday as well, and a photo will be shown to JazzFest fans, too. Good luck, runners!

Event: Spend the afternoon at the ball field! The Sioux Falls Canaries will play the Gary SouthShore RailCats at 1:05 p.m., and tickets range from $8 to $14.
