Need an excuse to party? Here's one: The Colorado Humane Society is celebrating its 125th birthday today. Get gussied up in your finest evening attire and head over to the Adam's Mark Hotel, 1550 Court Place, where you can celebrate with dinner, entertainment, a silent auction and much more. The evening's bonus is a warm, fuzzy feeling in your tummy produced not by excessive amounts of alcohol, but rather by the knowledge that you're helping an organization that helps cute li'l puppies and kittens. And adult dogs and cats, for that matter. The fun starts at 6 p.m. and costs $75 per person, or $125 per couple; visit www.coloradohumane.org or call 303-584-9191 for information.
Sun., Aug. 19, 6 p.m.-midnight
