10 things to do for $10 (8 free!) this weekend, November 9-11
Auraria Custodians Tell Their Story at the Auraria Campus Science Building (Saturday, free)
Rather than take to the streets with their grievances, the custodians of the Auraria campus are taking to the stage. They'll perform an original play, Auraria Custodians Tell Their Story, today on campus to help raise awareness about the decreased wages, increased workload and other complaints they have about their jobs. This is definitely an interesting, more artistic way to go about creating social change and should be fascinating to watch.
The Dunny Show at Plastic Chapel (Saturday, free)
Artist TaskOne curated this Dunny show, featuring tons of artists creating their own versions of the custom vinyl art toys. After you've had your fill of artistic visions of these devil bunny toys, head next door to The Shoppe for an after-art cupcake.
Art Without Walls at the Denver Voice (Saturday, free)
This show organized by the Denver Voice and the Handmade Homemade Market will make room for the artistic talent of individuals who might not otherwise get to display their work. Art Without Walls will showcase the work of local homeless artists who are usually ignored because of their socioeconomic status; the event will also act as a holiday marketplace where you can buy handmade, one-of-a-kind gifts.
Fetal Hope Foundation Dance Flash Mob at Washington Park (Sunday, free)
If you've ever wanted to be part of a ridiculous public spectacle, this is your chance. Right before the Race for Fetal Hope, the Denver Flash Mob is hosting a giant dance to "Gangnam Style" in Washing Park. Watch the video, learn the dance, and prepare to shake your limbs like a fool with a bunch of strangers..
Athena Festival at Ramada Plaza (Sunday, $5)
Release your inner goddess at a holistic festival today, which will feature everything from $1 a minute psychic readings to crystal sales and aura pictures. Discover what lies ahead in your future while "America's Future: Predictions from Psychics, Astrologers and Numerologists," also promises a glimpse into our nation's future. The event starts at 11 a.m. on 11/11, so expect some magical numerology significance.
