Name Your Price for Adult Pets at Denver Dumb Friends League (Friday, $10?) 'Tis the season of giving, and there's no greater gift than a loving home. Sure, that new friend might cost more that $10 over the years but it's a heck of a deal today. Last year, 140 dogs and cats received new homes so let's try and go beyond that today. Even if it's not the right time for you to make a new friend, drop by and donate to the Dumb Friends League's Paws to Give fundraiser.

Thanksgiving Party at Crash 45 (Friday, free) Robot Resurrection is celebrating the end of a fundraiser they had, and the robots themselves will be there to party with you. They'll also be selling robot-related goodies, so knock out some holiday shopping while you're there. Also, bring your Thanksgiving leftovers for a huge potluck.

Seven Minutes in Purgatory at Mutiny Information Cafe (Friday, free/donations) To finally digest the rest of that stuffing, come check out some experimental comedy. Watch comedians on a screen broadcasted from a soundproof room tell jokes, completely unaware how the audience is reacting. See Jordan Doll, Chris Charpentier, Kristin Rand, Zach Reinert, Ian Douglas Terry and more squirm and giggle their way through an act.

Ice Skating at Southwest Rink at Skyline Park (Friday-Sunday, $2) Impress the in-laws with a skating rink in the heart of downtown. The glowing lights reflecting off the ice just screams holiday cheer. It's free if you bring your own skates, or $2 to rent.

Woodward ReMix at Woodward at Copper (Saturday, free) For all you weekend warriors of the extreme snow variety, enjoy a party at the Woodward barn. Free food, skateboarding, demos from pros doing flips into the foam pit and much more. Stick around for the premier of Absinthes' newest snowboard film, Heavy Mental.
