Three Things to Do for Free in Denver, February 29-March 3

Living in Colorado is always reason enough to celebrate, but there are some particularly noteworthy free events this week.  You can learn the screen-printing process, sway with drone music and celebrate the state without even opening your wallet. Let us know any bargains we missed in the comments section, and go to the Westword calendar for even more action.  

Let's Get Incredible with Ratio, New Belgium & Ink Lounge
Ratio Beerworks
3 p.m Wednesday, free
There's no finer way to learn something than with a beer in your hand. Help Ratio, New Belgium and the Ink Lounge screen-print posters for the beer that the two breweries have been working on for Collaboration Fest: a Bruleed Grapefruit Saison. Learn the-screen printing process, and you may even be able to take home a poster that you printed yourself. There are rumors samples of the brew might be floating around, too.

Lake Mary with Saskatoon and Eric Rich Ensemble
Live
at Leon
7:30 p.m. Wednesday, free
Jess Webb has a solo exhibition, In Between Life & Death, at Leon, and tonight the gallery will present music created for the show. Join Webb and the performers for a night of smooth ambient soundscapes, drone noise and a classically trained piano-ensemble set. 

The Colorado pride is ink deep at Illegal Pete's.

303 Day
Illegal Pete's 
9 p.m. Thursday, free

We probably have hip-hop to thank for making area codes famous, but we have Illegal Pete's to thank for throwing a party in honor of the city's original code. Enjoy food and beer specials while wearing your Colorado-pride gear all day at any of the seven Illegal Pete's Colorado locations. After 9 p.m., live music and comedy will take the stage; check out the full lineup of some serious quality free entertainment here.
