This weekend can't be all about basketball, can it? At some point, you should probably acknowledge your mini-me's and take them out for some fun.

You’ll find it in the form of dinosaurs. DINOSAURS, yo! Big ones (are there any other kind?) who star in the show "ERTH's Dinosaur Zoo," which has three shows at the Holland Center on SATURDAY (March 22).

The production features large-scale, life-like puppet creations that were developed in consultation with paleontologists and based on current science and interpretations of fossil evidence. The show uses electronics, skilled performers and puppeteers to bring these giants to life on stage. You'll see everything from prehistoric insects to a baby "Dryosaur" to the peaceful hulk "Titanosaur" to the show-stopping T-Rex. There's a "Kids Zone," too, with face painting and balloon artists, etc.

On TUESDAY (March 25), the dino grooves continue at the Holland Center with "The Dinosaur Hunter," a show featuring paleontologist Paul Sereno (at left), a modern-day Indiana Jones who will share his tales of hunting dinosaurs.
