First Friday reruns: Everybody loves a second chance!
When Mother Nature dumped snow on Denver last Friday, more than a few galleries and businesses decided to shut their doors, first Friday or no. A blizzard of confusion resulted, as many show openings and other events were postponed to later dates -- many of them this weekend.
Here are some of the snowed-out events that are now on for today and tomorrow:
Tigalo Block Party: Grand Opening Edition: The much-awaited party celebrating Tigalo -- the new hipster retail block comprising Fancy Tiger Crafts, Fancy Tiger Clothing and the Buffalo Exchange -- will finally make the marriage official with a blowout, three-store party-down from 7 to 10 p.m. tonight. And the even newer kid on the block, Sewn, which opened recently in the old Fancy Tiger Clothing site, will also be open until 9 p.m. Make a night of it! Get info at the Fancy Tiger website www.fancytiger.com.
Of God and Monsters: Nearby, 'Indy Ink is finally getting its chance to make its mark with a solo show of graphic images in layered vellum by Adam Reker. The reception is from 6:30 to 11:30 p.m. tonight and the show continues through March 10. For details, call 720-937-9722.

The Other Side Arts on Platte Street will roll out The Potato Show tonight from 6 to 9 p.m. The tasty exhibit of potato-inspired artwork is sided by a fundraiser to support Global Orphan Prevention's goal of building a primary school in Nepal. Call 303-561-3000.
