New Year? Resolve to Learn Something New
Antlers at Vail offers ‘Symposium Special’
Vail, Colorado – December 27, 2007 – Some New Year’s Resolutions are easier to keep than others. Resolving to eat more tofu and do more sit-ups are certainly virtuous goals, but how about learning about something new — like the art of Bonsai? Or taking a stab at writing poetry? The Vail Symposium is a series of educational events that draws some big names and offers a diverse array of thought-provoking topics — a Madeline Albright live video conference, Islamic Extremism, Organic Cooking and Japanese Calligraphy are all on the agenda for 2008. To encourage new participants, the Antlers at Vail – the organization’s Official Hotel – is offering a ‘Symposium Special’ package with deeply discounted midweek rates. Rooms begin at just $278 per night for two people, and the rate includes admission for two to the Symposium.
The Vail Symposium is a grassroots, nonprofit organization that offers a series of educational programs billed as “thought-provoking, diverse and affordable.” This spring’s symposium features a variety of events on a wide-ranging array of topics, from cultural topics like contemporary art and a glass studio tour, to high-country offerings like a historical snowshoe trip and a presentation about fossils. The Symposium’s spring program runs through May 21, 2008, and a complete schedule can be found at www.vailsymposium.org; call (970) 476-0954 to make reservations for specific events.
