It’s the weekend before Memorial Day weekend, and there’s jazz and some HBO finale and a Neon Baby (more on this below) to experience. Here’s what caught our eye around town and into the mountains.

🎶 Listen: Now in its 15th year, Five Points Jazz Festival is bringing dozens of bands across multiple stages to its namesake neighborhood all day Saturday. It’s free to attend, and the weather forecast is looking better.
🍴 Eat: Free Market’s grand opening at Dairy Block is happening all day Saturday, too. If you’re there, make sure to grab bites from Bruto, the block’s newest restaurant.
🍶 Go: More than 100 local makers will convene on Saturday and Sunday along Walnut Street (between 28th and 29th Streets) for RiNo Spring Bazaar. There will also be food and alcohol.
