10 things to do for $10 this weekend, March 4-6, 2011
Apparently, March didn't get the memo that it's supposed to come in like a lion, because the last week has been relatively beautiful and closer to the lamb-like status we're supposed to having at the end of the month. Whatever: The mountain's loss is our gain, as we'll be able to enjoy pleasant weather for most of the weekend and hit up tons of different events around town on the cheap.
15th Annual Women's Leadership Conference with keynote speaker Pam Grier at Tivoli Student Union (Friday, $5-$10)
Seriously, it's Pam Grier. Do we even need to tell you any more than that? She's the epitome of badass babe, known for kicking ass, being sassy and doing it all in style. We don't know what she'll be saying during her keynote, but we honestly don't care. We'd gladly accept Ms. Grier as our leader any day of the week.
LUCEO's Altered States: The Way We Live Today at Indy Ink (Friday, free)
Matt Slaby A portion of a photo shot during the clean-up after the Gulf Oil Spill.
LUCEO Images has been making a name for itself by providing some of the best photography this country has to offer. While only one of the members, Matt Slaby, is based here in Denver, his work alone is enough for a full-blown show. Slaby and the rest of the group will have their talent on display tonight in honor of Colorado's month of photography, and we guarantee you'll walk away impressed.
Fancy Tiger presents Denver Made, featuring James Cromwell Holden, at Fancy Tiger (Friday, free)
Speaking of the month of photography, Fancy Tiger is throwing together a big show as well. James Cromwell Holden, whose name you might recognize from some DJ nights, his band Astreo Moveo and as an all around ridiculously nice dude, will be showing off his other passion, photography.

Tomte Modern Craft will be celebrating its move and reopening this weekend by throwing a party. On top of showing off the new digs, they shop will also be showcasing some new craft art from Elena Stonaker. It should prove to be a welcome addition to First Friday over on the west side.
Fashion Denver's March First Friday at Fashion Denver (Friday, free)
