Let's start off by saying, Go Broncos! Yes, it's going to be a big day for our boys on the field, but it's going to be an even bigger weekend for cheap entertainment. Dance the woes of the week away, laugh with the comics, and find out if the truth is really out there over the next couple days. For even more fun, smash that Westword calendar button.

Bartender in Residence: Nicole Laurita of Willams & Graham at MCA Denver (6 p.m. Friday, $5)

Weedgalized Book-Release Event at Denver Press Club (6 p.m. Friday, free)
When living in Denver, you never know when you might get stopped on the street to be quizzed about pot from an out-of-towner. Get a simple grasp on the best dispensaries, strains and terminology with a discussion with author of  Weedgalized in Colorado: True Tales from the High Country, Johnny Welsh. It's a comical reveal of what living in the highest state in the country is all about.

Underground Comedy Showcase at The Soiled Dove Underground (8 p.m. Friday, $10)
Have a chuckle with legendary Denver comic Louis Johnson, who's been seen all over TV and the world. The dude's crowd-work game is out of control, so be ready for some-on-the spot comedy. Sam Tallent, Christie Buchele, Troy Walker, Tim Messenger and more will round out the jokes — and your Friday night.

Raise The Roof at Glob (8 p.m. Friday, $10 donation)
It's always fun to dance, but it's more fun when it's for a purpose. This party benefits Denver Homeless Out Loud, an organization run by and for homeless and formerly homeless people in town. Thug Entrancer, COP CIRCLES and Drvg1 D13Nvsty will perform along with live DJ's and video projections from H O R S E W H I S P E R E R. Shaking your rump tonight helps protect the rights of the less fortunate and finds them shelter.

Snap! 90's Dance Party: One Year Anniversary at Ophelia's Electric Soapbox (9 p.m. Friday, $10)
Once you have a couple drinks in you and hear your favorite songs from twenty years ago, the night will be perfect. Hopefully DJ Garthy Garth will play that jam you got you your first make-out to or the one your drunk uncle always tries to sing. It's going to be a time, so get on down. 

Chili Cook-off at Mile High Harley-Davidson (11 a.m. Saturday, $5)
Make friends with some Hog enthusiasts with your favorite chili recipe. If you bring your own batch of batch of red, entry is free, or pay $5 to taste all of the delicious biker chili. A king and queen will be crowned, so get ready for the burn that is certain to ensue.  

Ratio Sessions with Small Brown Bike at Ratio Beerworks (1 p.m. Saturday, free)
Ratio is not only making waves in the beer world, but the record industry as well. Today, they welcome Small Brown Bike for a live taping of the Mostly Harmless Podcast. They'll rap about beer and play a couple of acoustic jams. If you like what you hear, you can pick up discounted tickets to one of the bands shows this weekend. As extra incentive Ratio will release their new Belgian Quad, One Great City for your sipping pleasure.

Something Fabulous: Comedy, Burlesque & Variety Show at Blush & Blu (8:30 p.m. Saturday, $5)
It's insane the amount of entertainment that will be packed into a $5 ticket price. Jordan Wieleba hosts the night featuring comics Adrian Mesa, Meghan Deponceau, David Rodriguez, Rachel Weeks and burlesque with Kitty Crimson, Bang Bang Von Loola and Cherry Pop Pop Poppins. It's going to be a sensory overload of pasties and giggles.

AceEatBreathe at Ace (12:30 p.m. Sunday, free)
It's a real juxtaposition of the new years resolutions versus reality. It will be a healthy and relaxing session led by CorePower Yoga teachers, but it's at a bar, with happy hour to follow. Relax your way into some delicious cocktails and dim sum. You may be able to win future free yoga sessions and gear as well.

X-Files Premiere Party at The Oriental Theater (6 p.m. Sunday, $10)
The truth has always been out there, but it's taken a fourteen-year sabbatical before we hopefully get to the bottom of it. Celebrate all things otherwise unexplainable tonight, before the premier of the show. Test your memory with a trivia, and dress in your best trench coat for the costume contest, worth cash prizes. The show starts at 8 p.m. if you still want to believe.
