1. Pub Crawl

The popular Lake of the Ozarks Mardi Gras Pub Crawl will be Feb. 18 in Lake Ozark and Osage Beach. With more than 30 buses running from 4 p.m.-2:30 a.m., participants will be able to stop off at any participating bars and restaurants. A full list of veneus and hotels is online. Instead of a cover charge at each location, purchase a $10 wrist band for access to 20+ venues, entertainment and bus transportation. www.lakepubcrawl.com.

2. Go where the eagles fly

While the Lake of the Ozarks’ Eagle Days event is in February, the growing bald eagle population in the region is remains throughout the cold weather months. Hike trails in our state parks, Lake of the Ozarks or Ha Ha Tonka, with a set of binoculars and a good camera to catch these majestic birds in action before they start heading north for the summer. Choose trails that take you close to the water and higher up on a bluff to increase your likelihood of spotting one. While you’re there, take note of the varied wildlife, on land and in the air, that occupies the area.

3. Get jazzed

The Ozark Jazz Society will host Kathleen Marco and the Jazz Monkeys at the Inn at the Grand Glaize in Osage Beach from 6:30-9 p.m. Feb. 26. Cost is $10 for OJS members or $12.50 for the general public. An optional buffet will be served from 5-6:15 p.m. for $15 per person. For more information, call 573-365-3411 or go to www.lakeozarkjazz.org.

4. Do good and have fun

The second annual Young Professionals at the Lake Dodgeball Tournament will be held at 9 a.m. Feb. 11 at School of the Osage Middle School. Open to the public, a portion of proceeds will be donated to the Lake Area Big Brothers Big Sisters.
