10 things to do for $10 in Denver this weekend (7 free!), January 4-6
Tryst Saturdays at Coco Breeze Lounge & Cafe (Saturday, free for 21+)
The grand opening of Denver's only gay 18+ venue is definitely something to celebrate -- and not just because it means getting a free drink if you show up before 10 p.m. Enjoy the complimentary booze, tunes from DJ Rockstar Aaron, and entertainment from go-go dancers at this weekend party on one of the many rowdy nights of entertainment to come from the club.
New Drawings by Brittany Gould at Cafe Europa (Saturday, free)
As a musician in her solo project Married in Berdichev, Brittany Gould creates beautiful, ethereal sounds. Her visual art captures that same dreamy feeling on paper, and it's always a treat to see what the visionary artist has been creating. This show features intricate, whimsical black-and-white drawings that are not to be missed.
Mardi Gras Gogo & Hooper Tryouts at the Fusion Factory (Saturday, $5)
Tonight's the night for amateur go-go dancers to try out at the Fusion Factory, which should be a good opportunity to have a few drinks, watch the aspiring performers and cheer for your favorites. DJs Dallas Brown, Raptor and Nomad will provide the night's soundtrack. If you're feeling like a star, trying out will get you into the event for free. It's sure to be way more exciting than Dancing With The Stars.
Poetry Slam at the Mercury Cafe (Sunday, $5)
The Mercury Cafe's long-running poetry slam is always a great Sunday-evening option. Get a hot beverage and some delicious food from the cafe, and sit back to enjoy performances ranging from hilarious to heart-wrenching. It's always a lively evening full of good food, drinks and art.
That Hamilton Woman at the Sie FilmCenter (Sunday, free)
Take in a cinema classic for free today at the Tattered Cover's free film series. The pick for the weekend is That Hamilton Woman, a movie starring Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh that follows the affair between the admiral who defeated Napoleon and a woman named Lady Hamilton. Spend a Sunday afternoon getting in some cost-free cinema.
