St. Patrick's Day isn't until Tuesday, but you wouldn't know it as you look around Denver this weekend. Many Denverites will be throwing back green beers, car bombs, whiskey and corned beef until they are two finger-assaulting any stranger unlucky enough to be caught without the obligatory green garb. If this amateur drinking holiday isn't your cup of Irish tea, here are some alternative events on this weekend's culinary calendar.

Friday, March 13 

FNA, a former-street-food-turned-apparel company that sells T-shirts and uses the proceeds to fight local hunger among the poor and homeless, will be launching its apparel-only brand today with a party at Prost Brewing Company from 7 to 10 p.m. Prost and FNA will be handing out free food and drinks, and there will be T-shirt giveaways as well as an opportunity to learn how FNA helps to fight hunger in the community. For more info, head to FNA's Facebook page. 

The Alamo Drafthouse in Littleton is celebrating this Friday the 13th with a very special craft dinner and screening of the original Friday the 13th film.

The evening of horror starts at 7:15 p.m. and tickets, which include three beers and dinner, are $50 per person. For more information, visit drafthouse.com.

The second Annual Brew & Stew will take place from 6 to 10 p.m. at Mile High Station.

Cook Street School of Culinary Arts has teamed up with a local spirits company to bring you its “Steak and Spirits” class. You’ll learn about various cuts of beef and how to cook them with accompanying marinades and sauces — and then pair them with a local spirit.

The class is $99 per person and will run from 6 to 9:30 p.m. To register or for more info, click here
