Pikes Picks: Celebrate pair of international events at home in Colorado Springs

Like most people, I like the Summer Olympics a bit more than the Winter Olympics, probably because the summer sports are a bit more relatable. Tell me you've gone cross-country skiing and periodically whipped out a rifle to shoot at targets. I didn't think so. While I may favor the summer games, I make sure to catch the opening ceremony of every Olympics. I get swept up in the spectacle, the patriotism and the interesting-looking licensed uniforms. The XXIII Olympic Winter Games opening ceremony airs at 6 p.m. Friday on NBC. - Terry Terrones

It's the Year of the Dog for the Asian community, with two local celebrations coming soon. The first is the Colorado Springs Chinese Cultural Institute New Year Festival at City Auditorium, 221 E. Kiowa St., 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Enjoy the traditional lion dance, Taiko drums, kung fu demonstrations, Asian-themed performances, merchant booths and an assortment of foods to buy. Visit cscci.org. The second is Golden Lotus Foundation's traditional family-style Chinese New Year Dinner at China Town Restaurant, 326 S. Nevada Ave., 5 to 7:30 p.m. Feb. 15.
