Ten Things to Do in Denver for $10 or Less (Five Free), March 25-27

Between the sunshine and snowstorms, there's plenty to keep you from going stir-crazy over the weekend. You can dance up a storm, celebrate religious holidays, or just sit back and giggle. Here are our ten favorite things to do for ten bucks or less; if you want even more options, smash that Westword calendar button. 
Denver March Powwow
Denver Coliseum 
10 a.m. Friday through Sunday, $7
For over thirty years Denver has been home to one of the biggest powwows in the country. This weekend you can admire performances by 1,600 dancers from 100 different tribes across North America. Along with the dancing, there will be stories to hear, songs to sing and lots of food to eat. 
Ratio Session: Into It. Over It.
Ratio Beerworks 
6 p.m. Friday, free
Meet Chicago rockers Into It. Over It. before their show at the Marquis. The band will tape a live version of the Mostly Harmless Podcast while sipping beer and playing a few songs; at the show later tonight, you can tell everybody you shared some suds with these dudes.

Mad Max Purim
MCA Denver 
6 p.m. Friday, $5
This mashup is not as weird as it sounds on the surface; there are some similarities between the history of the Jews and the story of Mad Max. In any case, it should be fun to dress up like a rogue desert nomad while dancing to Klezmer tunes, munching on Hamantaschen and checking out the museum.  

Drag Nation Seventh Anniversary
9 p.m. Friday, $10
Y'all in for a real treat tonight when the resident queen Nina Flowers hosts the hottest drag show in town for the seventh year straight. Special guests and dancers will keep the energy going as you enjoy mixing it up to the tunes and those drink specials. Get $10 tickets here

The Hello Kitty Cafe Truck
Park Meadows 
10 a.m. Saturday, free
Rumor has it you should camp out overnight, since the Hello Kitty treats sell out fast. But just catching the truck when it stops at Park Meadows should be a fun time for all the Hello Kitty enthusiasts out there who just want to spread joy and happiness.
