By late afternoon, well likely be so high on freedom and drunk on democracy that well need a tiny come-down nap before heading to the Oriental Theater for the NW Community Inauguration Party, which kicks off at 5:30 p.m. with a pre-party featuring heavy hors doeuvre, open bar, silent auction and entertainment by a DPS School of the Arts jazz combo. Starting at 7:30 p.m., well revel in the partys patriotic theme as house band The Lovely and Talented backs up more than a dozen of Denvers most spirited musicians performing American-themed pop songs all damn night. Then well go home and sleep, happy to be waking up in a better America.
The Oriental is at 4335 West 44th Avenue. Tickets for the pre-party are $25 in advance or $30 at the door and include admission to the 7:30 p.m. concert. Concert tickets alone are $10 in advance or $15 at the door. Get more information at www.theorientaltheater.com or 303-455-2124, and www.shadowtheatre.com or 720-857-8000.
