10 things to do for $10 this weekend, October 28-30, 2011
Murder on Broadway at 3 Kings Tavern (Saturday, $5)
If you're the type who'd rather perform a Halloween activity then simply watch it, you best head over to 3 Kings for Murder on Broadway this afternoon. As an alternate reality game/murder mystery, you'll be tasked with finding the (fake) killer of a (fake) cereal box celebrity. You can team up with friends or grill witnesses by yourself, but the first to solve the mystery correctly takes home a bunch of prizes.
Dog-o-ween at Petco (Saturday, free)
So, you're one of those people that likes to dress up their dog in stupid costumes, eh? That's okay, because today's one of the only days you'll not have to feel too weird about doing it, because you can enter your canine in a costume contest and win prizes. Alternately, if you're bored on a Saturday afternoon, this is going to be a great place to setup tailgating style and watch the weird-parade.
Halloweird II at Bananalope Coffee (Sunday, $5)
Halloweird is all about weird films -- we're not talking "weird" in a '90s Xtreme kind of way, even though the title might suggest that a little -- we're talking weird in the "G.I. Joe rape scene" kind of way. Which is to say, this is going to be grotesque, odd, off-the-wall and absurdly funny if you've got the right type of humor pallet.
The Exorcist at Muenzinger Auditorium (Sunday, $6)
Halloween isn't complete without a viewing of The Exorcist, and the Muenzinger Auditorium in Boulder has willfully obliged to show the horrifying film on the big screen. If you haven't seen it, prepare to have the pants scared right off your legs.
Atomic Pablo at Mercury Café (Sunday, $9)
We could probably throw a rock at a map and hit about 30 different dance parties going on tonight, but the Mercury Cafe's mix of swing dancing and a costume contest is sure to be a step outside the box from the sexy-kitten grinding on a Frankenstein you'll find in most clubs.
