Events on this Day

 Wednesday, April 10th
CO Pint Day
11:00am / Ska Brewing World HQ
Colorado Pint Day is a time-honored tradition that has reached cult-level status with beer lovers flocking to participating breweries every year to purchase Colorado Pint Day limited edition glassware.   $1 of each pint glass sold will be donated to the Colorado Brewers Guild and its mission to promote, protect and propel independent craft breweries in the State of Craft Beer.   Every year Colorado Pint Day is held on a Wednesday in the spring. While the event is a fundraiser for the Colorado Brewers Guild, we also hope to encourage beer lovers to visit breweries on a day of the week that is traditionally slower, hence a Wednesday.   This year's theme for Colorado Pint Day is Spring Skiing and Pond Skimming! We want to celebrate everything that comes with spring skiing including mountains, snow, sun, and skiing in the last few weeks of spring!   Congratulations to Rhyan Montgomery from Ramblebine Brewing in Grand Junction for designing the winning artwork for 2024 Colorado Pint Day! This is our 3rd annual Colorado Pint Day art competition! Any CBG member employee was able submit their artwork.

The San Juan Basin Archaeological Society invites the public to a presentation in the Lyceum at the Center of Southwest Studies and on Zoom on Wednesday, April 10 at 7:00 pm. At 6:30 we will have social time, then after a brief business meeting, Dr. Piyawit Moonkham, FLC visiting Archaeology Professor will discuss "Anthropology of Space and Place in the Temples in Northern Thailand.". For log-in information go to SJBAS.ORG.    This research offers a spatial point of view of the religious living space within Buddhist temples in Northern Thailand. The concept of religious space often connects to notions of sacredness and a rigid, statically oriented place that people would only utilize for specific spiritual or large-scale social activities (e.g., harvesting, natural disasters, and such), reflecting ideas that any supernatural being associated with the space should not be disturbed often and is unequal to people. However, in Northern Thailand, the temples are much more than merely such rigidly sacred places. People go to the temple for personal matters, ask for blessings, exchange goods, consult about personal matters, gather for social events, and the like. These phenomena reflect a balanced, engaged, and horizontal relationship between the community and their sacred place, highlighting a hybridized version of a cosmological worldview and communal living religious space.   Piyawit is an anthropological archaeologist with broad research interests in community-based archaeology, spatial analysis, ecology, and cultural heritages. His research is focused on spatial layout of sites (particularly Southeast Asia) and interaction of local social worldview with spaces (he employed GIS analysis in this work. His research utilizes spatial analyses to understand and assess communal, social, and religious spaces, sociopolitical interactions, pre-and post-colonial ideologies, plants use and heritage management of pre-modern and historical sites. His regional focus is on Mainland Southeast Asia, mainly Northern Thailand, where he is from, and Laos. His research on indigenous spatial patterns and social and religious worldviews has significant implications for understanding the sociopolitical landscape of pre-state and historical societies in Mainland Southeast Asia. My recent publications in TRaNS: Trans Regional-and National Studies of Southeast Asia, International Journal of Historical Archaeology, and in Journal of Anthropological Archaeology elucidates how local social worldviews interact with the spatial layout of Buddhist temples in Chiang Sean, Northern Thailand, particularly how it may reflect changing concepts of social and religious spaces and shed light on the importance of heterarchy and their social worldview.
