This weekend is a full calendar for both young and adult.

The show will feature music from the Roaring 20s, the war and big band era, doo-wop and the beginnings of rock and roll.

Tickets are $15 and the doors open at 6 p.m. Show starts around 7:30 p.m.

• The Maverick Saloon & Dance Hall is catering to both young and old this weekend.

Dave Yoder will perform at 8 p.m. Friday but Saturday is reserved for metal mongers.

Three bands, Wax Pig Melting, Odd Ones Out and The Wretched Sould Kids will perform beginning at 8 p.m.

• Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge will host a night hike Saturday beginning at 8 p.m.

The guided hike will educate attendees on subjects of nocturnal animals and how they have become “experts at life after dark.”

Reservations are a must. Call 775-240-9173 to participate.

• The Saturday “movie in the park” will be Hotel Transylvania.

The show begins at dusk in Ian Deutch Memorial Park.

Tickets are $15 and available at Pahrump Community Library and at the door. The price includes an Italian dinner.

DIVAS ON A DIME: Ramen noodles get a healthy, inexpensive upgrade

Confession time: At the grocery store, I always look at what other people have in their carts. Not a casual glance, either, I really look. I learn a great deal about the family behind the cart. Besides what’s for dinner, I can usually tell how many people are in the household, whether the family has children, and what age. I can also gauge how much money they spend and how committed they are to eating healthy foods.
