The sun's staying out late and you should be, too: There's plenty to do around Denver that won't empty your wallet. This week we're nerding out, getting quizzed and laughing at lectures. Check out the Westword calendar for more to do, and let us know in the comments section if we missed a bargain. 

DINK presents: Mostly Harmless Live
Ratio Beerworks
7 p.m. Monday, free)
We've been waiting all year for the inaugural DINK Comic & Art Expo to pop off.  Tonight you can get a preview of the new fest at a live taping of the Mostly Harmless Podcast that will discuss all things nerd with comedian Mallory Wallace, comic artist and DINK founder Charlie LaGreca, and musical guests The Ghoulies. Listen to stories of nerd stardom — from humiliating to liberating — and find out how these artists used it to their advantage. It's a three-banger of podcast, comedy and music.

Ratio Quiz Show: Movie Edition
Ratio Beerworks
8 p.m. Tuesday, free
Ratio is always up to something, and now the brewery has added a weekly quiz.  Teams made up audience members will compete against a panel of "experts";  if an audience team can manage to stump the authorities, it will win awesome prizes. (There are prizes for losers, too — but they're kind of crappy.) This week the subject is movies, so start studying those IMDB pages now.

Put a little humor in the lecture with Jim Woodring tonight at RMCAD.
