This Week's Day-by-Day Picks

The Swallow Hill Music Association's Shady Grove Picnic Concert Seriesremains one of the region's best little secrets: Tucked into the bucolic surroundings at Four Mile Historic Park, 715 South Forest Street, the al fresco summer series offers the kind of laid-back bluegrass and acoustic music and inexpensive tickets that appeal to families looking for a mid-week diversion. Picnics are encouraged -- no, expected -- and the kids can visit with Four Mile's draft horses, sheep and chickens as the cool evening breezes blow. Bring your own lawn chairs and blankets; the series kicks off tonight with the O'Brien Family Band and continues weekly at 6 p.m. on Wednesday nights through August 3. Tickets are $2 to $7 at the gate; call 303-777-1003 or log on to
