It's Getting Loud In Here: Living Room Concert
Currently, we can't go to concerts; however, singers and instrumentalists from around Sweetwater County have been live streaming their performances on Quarantine Cabaret on Facebook, Sweetwater Live Music on Facebook and Living Room Concerts on Sweetwater NOW Google other performances you can watch on-line, support these artists and enjoy great music!
Bars Closed? No problem!
Speaking of music, grab a "cocktail in a pouch" from Wyoming Club or Joe's Liquor & Bar and play Extreme Bingo! Send a friend request to Kevin James Kolar , Owner of "Turn Up the Volume" DJ Services on Facebook and stay tuned for the time and day of the next game. Game times are also posted on the Rock Springs Classified on Facebook. Even people who aren't living in Wyoming are enjoying this fun activity so join us!
Cuddle with Cats and Dream with Dogs! (And Don't Forget to Pick Up a Book!)

You can also enjoy wine from Sidekicks Book and Wine bar (curbside service - call ahead)
You can find e-books, digital movies, digital audiobooks and magazines on the Sweetwater County Library System website.
Adopting a new pet from the Red Desert Humane Society isn't a bad idea too. Former Rock Springs Library Reference Librarian, Ashley Jo Will is surrounded by her cats, Geordi, (top), Tuvok and Peaches as she reads "World War Z."
You can peek at the adorable photos of cats and dogs on the Red Desert Humane Society Facebook page and https://www.petfinder.com/. Once you choose the one that should be your new four-legged buddy, call the Red Desert Humane Society, 307-362-1636 for an application. After completing the application on-line, they will call you, pending approval, and you can meet your forever furry friend.
Plant A Garden and Believe in Tomorrow
As soon as the weather decides to behave, enjoy some fresh air and plant a garden! You might be pleasantly surprised by the results just as local resident, Levi Jensen was last year. The friendly folks at our neighborhood Ace Hardware of Rock Springs will help you with your gardening needs.

Cooking With The Kids
Maybe you're no Martha Stewart, but cooking together with your family can be fun. Go from quizzing your children on the multiplication tables to trying a new recipe. Even if your attempt at hibachi turns into a kitchen catastrophe, there's always Go Gal Delivery. They can grab a meal from one of your favorite local restaurants like Bitter Creek Brewing , Broadway Burger Station, and Casa Chavez Mexican Restaurant. Before you know it, you and your loved ones will have something fresh and delicious to eat!
You can also check out live steaming cooking classes at sweetwaterlibraries. com
You don't have to have a degree in Art to spread images and phrases of inspiration! Paint a rock or two, hide them and see if they're found on the Facebook group page, 307 Rocks. Hunting for rocks as a family can be a favorite activity too.
