Yeah, Colorado weather is finally letting us know that winter is coming. But that doesn't mean you can't go out and have fun this weekend. We've rounded up dance parties, a creepy holiday movie, and even a Miami-themed Golden Girls shindig to get you through the chilly weekend. And all for under ten bones. As always, check out our full calendar listings here: westword.com/calendar.
Party like a Golden Girl this weekend.
Holiday Mancraft at Ink Lounge (Friday, free)
While craft fairs are usually female-targeted, Holiday Mancraft is creating something different by focusing their energies on those with Y chromosomes. With an array of dudes who like to get crafty offering their wares, this will be a good place to not only support the oft-overlooked men in the craft scene, but find gifts for the men in your life.
Club Cold at Beauty Bar (Friday, free)
The experimental club night Get Whipped is getting a revamp, and new name tonight. The party just added the electronic talents of Pictureplane and Hollagramz, who are set to turn Beauty Bar into some sort of bizarre party every First Friday from now on.
Ice skate at Southwest Rink at Skyline Park (Friday-Sunday, free)
Embrace the cold at Skyline's free ice skating rink this weekend. With a lineup of entertainment that runs throughout the weekend (DJs on Friday, live music on Saturday, and family entertainment on Sunday) and skate rentals for $2, it's an inexpensive way to bundle up and enjoy winter.
Art Basel Miami Denver at the MCA Denver (Friday, $5)
For Denver art lovers who are stranded in the snow, longing to be at Art Basel this weekend, the MCA is bringing Miami to you. Sort of. They will screen the Miami-based show The Golden Girls and feature art inspired by the spunky ladies of the show. Basil-infused vodka martinis will accompany because, well, basil sounds like Basel?
Rare Exports and Holiday Party at the Denver FilmCenter Colfax (Friday & Saturday, $7)
The Watching Hour is getting in the holiday spirit this weekend to present a screening of Rare Exports, a bizarre, dark film set in Finland where archeologists dig up the real Santa and find he's much creepier than expected. A holiday party complete with Christmas sweaters, egg nog and free pizza will precede the film and get you in the yuletide state of mind before the Santa mythology is turned upside down in this intriguing, wacky film.
