Ten things to do for $10 this weekend, June 15-17, 2012
Denver PrideFest 2012 at Civic Center Park (Saturday-Sunday, free)
Fight for civil rights this weekend at Denver's annual PrideFest. This giant GLBTQ party features a wide variety of entertainment (including Kristine W. and Fab Morvan), food and drinks. It's always fun to people-watch and party; be sure to dress in rainbow colors. For a more extensive list of Pride activities, see Bree Davies' guide.
Tattooing As You Like It Release Party at The Denver Press Club (Saturday, free)
This release party for Tattooing As You Like It celebrates the subject of the book: tattoo legend Milton H. Zeis. It's a biography of the man as well as a tribute, featuring homage art from 95 other artists. The release party will include a photobooth, music from Mile High Soul Club, Zeis-related items and the book, of course. Learn more about this man's fascinating history and enjoy the party while you're at it.
Juneteenth Music Festival at Five Points (Saturday, free)
Celebrate the day that slaves in Texas learned they were free at this music festival. There will be role-playing history lessons as well as a whole lot of entertainment options, from funk music by the Ohio Players to booths with local vendors and other musical acts.
Salsa Con Jazz at City Park (Sunday, free)
If you're looking for something free to do with your dad on Father's Day, look no further than City Park. The weekly free jazz concert series continues tonight with Salsa Con Jazz, making this the perfect place to hang out in the park with your dad, drink beers (3.2 is allowed if it's not in glass bottles), and enjoy some street food as you thank him for half of your DNA.
Getting Lucky with Lucky Deluxe at Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret (Sunday, $10 in advance)
You can always count on burlesque performances to end in brightly colored pasties, and while we're pretty certain Lucky DeLuxe's one-woman show will incorporate those, she also adds something a little different to her performance: comedy. Her one-woman show combines stand-up and the art of the striptease in an entertaining, funny and titillating show. Tickets go up in price $2 the day of, so be sure to purchase in advance so you don't miss this unique performance.
