10 things to do for $10 this weekend, April 13-15, 2012
Delanie Holton-Fessler art opening at Hooked on Colfax (Saturday, free)
Delanie Holton-Fessler likes circles. The Denver artist will show her explorations of the shape, entitled ROUND, tonight at Hooked on Colfax. Don't be a square, check it out! And be sure to get some of Hooked's delicious espresso while you're at it.
Defying Defined Lines at eden (Saturday, free)
Jaztastic Art consistently brings inventive visual shows to eden, and this night will certainly continue that trend. Janet Guenther will showcase her wood panel paintings of beautiful women, as well has her DJ skills, and Josiah Brooks's stencil art will balance out the night with punk-influenced comic art. Enjoy the art, eat some scrumptious food, and dance your heart out when the night becomes a dance party.
From Ashes to Answers at the Denver Firefighter's Museum (Saturday, $10)
Firefighters are stereotyped as being hunky -- and perhaps not unfairly. The Denver Firefighters Museum will auction off twenty of the most dashing tonight all to raise funds for a monument to arson dogs. Whether you bid on the twin brothers who will cook you dinner or a date to a Rockies game, there's sure to be plenty of hot firefighters to choose from. It'll probably be just like that one Sex and the City episode where Carrie hooks up with Roger Serling.
Doors Open Denver at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House(Saturday-Sunday, free)
It's human nature to want to take a peek inside many of the awesome buildings in Denver. Most of the year, you can't do that without facing trespassing charges. Luckily, Doors Open Denver appeases our curiosity every year by letting the public inside some of Denver's coolest landmarks, even offering free tours through some of them. Take a look at the list of sites, plan your days, and build a weekend exploring these rad spaces.
Read My Pins at the Denver Art Museum (Sunday, $3-10)
Former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright didn't just wear brooches for fashion -- she wore them to send subtle messages during her political career. This traveling exhibit showcases over 200 of Albright's pins, which not only have ties to her foreign policy but are also a sight to see.
