Pikes Picks: Fast chicken chain continues to convert the masses in Colorado; performance art at the Fine Arts Center

RAISING CANE'S CHICKEN FINGERS RIVAL 'THE BIG BOYS'

In Colorado Springs, the majority swears by Chick-fil-A. Others are devoted to Popeyes. Church's Chicken has congregations elsewhere, and Bojangles' rules the South. Up in Denver, a new fast chicken chain is converting the masses. Raising Cane's rivals the big boys with crispy, tender chicken fingers far more worthy of the slogan "finger-lickin' good." The trademark sauce stacks up, too, and the sweet tea is as good as it gets. Throw in crinkle-cut fries, coleslaw and a buttery slice of Texas toast, and you're in carb heaven. The Springs' nearest location is at 5012 Founders Parkway, Castle Rock, with others in Centennial, Highlands Ranch and Parker. - Seth Boster

FREE PERFORMANCE ACT LINKED WITH EXHIBIT

Performance art exists to make you think, and an act by New York-based artist Baseera Khan at Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College, 30 W. Dale St., should do just that. Khan will perform "Braidrage" from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Friday, May 11. It's free, supported in part by a National Endowment for the Humanities Professorship Grant. RSVP required, 477-4310. Khan's exhibit "Baseera Khan: iamuslima" - on view at the FAC through June 24 - "confronts the trauma in women's lives to find paths of empowerment through resistance," says a news release. "Braidrage" is central to that exhibit, an installation work with a climbing wall that has a 13-foot braid of human and synthetic hair suspended from the ceiling. Khan will climb an adjacent rock wall, and her movements will activate the installation. -Michelle Karas
