Weekend’s Best Bets, Jan. 24

1 CHOOSE TO ACCEPT: Espionage and action go hand in hand in “Mission Impossible: Fallout,” which will be shown at 5:30 p.m. Friday at Boulder City Library, 701 Adams Blvd. The film follows Ethan Hunt and the IMF team as they join forces with a CIA assassin to prevent a group of terrorists from carrying out three simultaneous nuclear attacks. Bring blankets and snacks.

2 UNIQUE SOUNDS: Bryan McPherson, who plays Americana, folk and punk music, joins acoustic artist Brock Frabbiele for a Saturday night show at The Dillinger Food and Drinkery. Their show begins at 8:30 p.m. The Dillinger is at 1224 Arizona St. Call 702-293-4001 or visit www.thedillinger.com for more information.

3 TAKE A HIKE: With temperatures expected to hover in the low to mid-60s this weekend, conditions are ideal to hit the trails surrounding Boulder City. The Historic Railroad Trail at Lake Mead National Recreation Area offers an easy stroll along the flat former railroad route. Note: The trail is temporarily closed as tunnel 3 because of deteriorating support beams. For a longer and more strenuous excursion try to River Mountain Loops Trail, which sees its elevation vary by more than 1,300 feet from its highest and lowest points; there are numerous spots to access the trail.
