Leila del Duca Art Opening at KJ's Coffee Bar (Friday, free)
Leila del Duca creates beautifully inked, intricate comic art, and she'll have pages on display tonight at this opening as well as speak a little about her process. There will be pages from her many comic book projects, and it's also a great chance to see her ink and stories up-close and in-person, rather than just on the page.
Kim Harrison at the Tattered Cover Colfax (Friday, free)
If you've run out of vampire-themed books to read, you're in luck. Kim Harrison's A Perfect Blood fits snugly alongside other supernatural books like The Southern Vampire Mysteries and Twilight, and she'll be in town to read from and sign her spooky thriller tonight.
Tears of Gaza at the Mercury Cafe (Friday, free)
This brutal documentary about the Israeli military's attack on Gaza exposes the harsh brutalities of war by following three children in Gaza caught in the fire. It won't be an easy film to watch, but it's sure to be an important one.
Full Flavor Friday with Lance DeSardi at Bar Standard (Friday, $10)
The best way to stay warm in the snow is dancing. Luckily, Bar Standard is offering up a killer dance party tonight by bringing San Francisco electronic artist/DJ Lance DeSardi to town. Warm up by getting down to DeSardi's techno and house-influenced beats.
Free Day at the Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield (Friday, free)
Take a walk in wildlife for free at the Botanic Gardens free day all day today. Nature trails, gardens, and beehives will make this a mellow and picturesque activity for a Friday afternoon.
