This weekend, the city will be overflowing with green beer and folks decked out in green from head-to-toe. But if the Irish holiday isn't your cup of tea, er, beer, we've rounded up some equally exciting alternatives. From a dark side of Mardi Gras celebration to a comedic argument that pits chip lovers against dip fanatics, there is plenty to do, see and dance along to in Denver -- and you won't have to set foot in a pub or worse, worry about getting pinched because you forgot to wear green. Know about a great get-together in the Mile High that we missed? Tell us about it in the comments section below.

Hit And Run: Musical Improv at Voodoo Comedy Playhouse (Friday, $8-$10)
Improv gets an unexpected twist with the Hit And Run troupe, which produces hour-long, script-less shows based on suggestions from the audience. It has all the drama and singing of a Broadway show, but with the unparalleled humor only an impulse production can bring.

Cafe Cultura Presents: Rise Up! at Denver Indian Center (Friday, $3)

Free HIV testing is available in honor of National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day and National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (which both occur in March). There will be free food and the door price is a suggested donation; no one will be turned away.
