THRILLS

A Legg up: Adventure is where you find it. For intelligent fingerpicker Adrian Legg--yet another fine guitar player in the area this week--it's found in the expansive exploration of his instrument. Using tunings borrowed from bluegrass banjos and an elegant, almost classical technique, he fluidly mixes influences into his tunes--you'll hear a Celtic lilt, as well as intimations of country and pop. Legg headlines tonight at 9:30 at Herman's; call 777-5840 for tickets and information.

Monday February 28 You are there: The Denver Museum of Natural History will play host to the rainforests and reefs of Belize, all made possible via The Jason Project, a series of live satellite broadcasts--recording the activities of explorers, scientists and archaeologists--beginning today and continuing between 9 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday, until March 12. One of only 25 such broadcasting sites in the U.S., Canada and Great Britain, the museum will present the transmissions to visitors on three giant screens, as well as on a number of miniscreens designed to resemble a research ship control panel. A separate admission of $2.50 (students) or $3.75 (adults), not included in the general museum fee, is required. For information call the museum, 2001 Colorado Blvd., 370-6314; call 322-7009 for reservations.

Tuesday March 1 This team is bound for glory: Whether you are a novice at running marathons or not, if you've decided to run, you're going to need help. One place to find it is in the Leukemia Society of America's Team in Training program. Runners of all abilities raising contributions for leukemia research and patient aid will be eligible to train for the July 31 San Francisco Marathon with expert coaches. Depending on the amount raised, participants will be eligible for further dividends--from team clothing by Pearl Izumi to round-trip airfare and hotel accommodations. A distance of 26.2 miles sounds like a drop in the bucket when you consider all that. Those interested can attend an informational meeting tonight at 6:30 at Govnr's Park Restaurant, 6th Ave. and Logan St. For details, give Team in Training a buzz at 293-8300. Of love and shadows: CU-Boulder plays host tonight when Chilean magic realist Isabel Allende comes to town. The best-selling author and niece of the late president of Chile, Salvador Allende, will speak about a subject she knows quite well--her talk is called House of Spirits: South American Writing, sure to evoke numerous magical moments. Allende speaks at 7:30 p.m. in Macky Auditorium on the Boulder campus; tickets are $6 ($2 students). Call 492-3228 for information.
