GO

Wanderlust This yoga festival features two of the globe’s most influential yogis, John Friend and Schuyler Grant. After you’re done finding spiritual tranquility in Downward Dog, enjoy a poolside concert by D.C. electronic duo Thievery Corporation. September 10-11, wanderlustfestival.com. Use discount code WL2VEGAS for $40 off.

Naked Boys Singing Onyx Theatre's off-Broadway musical did well, with 200 performances under its belt (not that the boys wear belts). Sadly, the time has come for the cast to put its clothes back on. Catch it before the final curtain. Through September 30. Fridays at 10 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m.

CHEER

Triathlon The Marine Corps Ironman World Championship 70.3 moves to Las Vegas from Florida, featuring 1,800 competitors in a 1.2-mile swim, 56-mile bike ride and 13.1-mile run. Sounds intense. September 11, Lake Las Vegas, free.

READ

In My Time by Dick Cheney Lots of politicians write books while running for office … and all those books suck. The only good political books come from retirees. $35.

SEE

The Debt An excellent cast including Helen Mirren and Jessica Chastain leads this exciting thriller about a team of Israeli operatives hunting down a former Nazi scientist, and the consequences they deal with 30 years later. Now playing.

Violence, family, hogs -- yeah, must be 'Sons of Anarchy.'

Sons of Anarchy Yeah, it’s violent—Season 4’s first episode ended with a Godfather-style mass execution—but this show also has real heart and depth. These are bad guys you’d want to have a beer with. Tuesdays, FX, 10 p.m.

Mars Ain't the Kind of Place to Raise Your Kids Our favorite latex house-paint sculptor is back with a solo exhibit featuring the otherworldly but oddly familiar work of Christopher Bauder. Through October 12, opening reception September 9, 6-9 p.m., CSN Fine Arts Gallery.

CRAFT

Harvest Festival The West’s largest indoor arts and crafts show features creative goods from jewelry to clothing, stage and strolling entertainment and specialty food. Make it a three-day festival bender. September 9-10, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; September 11, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; $4-$9; Cashman Center.
