The 2009 Toughest Cowboy Finals are taking center stage at 7:30 p.m. this Saturday, Feb. 21. The champion cowboy will win a deed to his own ranch in the Wyoming Rocky Mountains, and all of it will be captured by Mark Burnett Production (of 'Survivor' fame) for a March 19 broadcast on Spike TV.
Get a load of the world's smallest cowboy (we can't make this stuff up), a ''cowboy monkey'' who rides a dog (seriously? we're speechless, too) chuck wagon races and women's barrel racing. Who says you can't see this stuff living in the city? A post-rodeo bonus is a Whiskey Falls concert with special country music guest Tracy Lawrence. Tickets are $20-77; order them online at ticketmaster.com or by calling 312-559-1212.
