It's going to be hard to top Super Bowl weekend, but there's no reason we can't try. These next couple days have a lot of dancing, a lot of beer and a lot of nerd stuff to make life a good time. Check out our calendar for a full line up of things to do.
One Year Anniversary at Ratio Beerworks (12 p.m. Friday-Sunday, free) They make a hell of a beer, so they're having a hell of a weekend over at Ratio. Stop by on Friday, Saturday or Sunday for a varying rotation of comedy shows, live music, smoked meats, crepes and special beers. Try to stop by on Saturday when they tap a very special keg of Wild in the Streets, a wild saison fermented in oak barrels. Check out the schedule on the Ratio web site.
Loveland Fire and Ice Festival at Downtown Loveland (5 p.m. Friday, free)
On this love-filled weekend, stop by the Love town in Colorado for a winter festival of free fun. Snuggle up with your loved ones with a cup of cocoa, dance to live music and sneak a smooch under nightly firework displays. The custom car show, carriage rides and Loveland artisans will surely have something to make everyone in the family happy as well.
The Bowie LINK - A Valentine to our Hero at Pearl's (9 p.m. Friday, $5) LINK might be a new pro-arts organization, but their party style is classic. Enjoy free face painting and a photo booth at this Spaceman-centric party. Local artists Christofer Lix has a new David Bowie performance piece to debut, local band Firstimers will play the covers and there will be DJ's to spin the hits as well. Support the life of the Thin White Duke and local arts tonight.
Skyhigh Opening Reception at Black Book Gallery (6 p.m. Saturday, free)
Since our boys won the big trophy last week, sports are all the rage right now — and have even made their way into the art world. Each of Billy Kheel's projects in the exhibition have been hand cut, dyed and stitched together. The felt appliqué style is a sight to see, so check it out for yourself.
My Bloody Violent-tine Film Festival at Bug Theater (5 p.m. Sunday, $5-7)
Check out some of the most lovely bloody, supernatural and spooky films and the award show to follow tonight. Local filmmakers have put in hard work to keep you spooked all night. Rub elbows with the stars and makers on the dance floor at the after party too. More info here.
The Church of Coen Presents: A Serious Man at Syntax Physics Opera (7 p.m. Sunday, free)
It's time to repent again and wash sins away at the Church of Coen. This month, we worship A Serious Man, one of the darker offerings from the Coen Brothers. Despite looking for all the meanings in life, it sometimes only gets worse. Musical accompaniment and discussion to follow.
Boulder Comedy Show at Bohemian Biergarten (7 p.m./ 9 p.m. Sunday, $5) Double up your Sunday dose of comedy. Bring the sensitive ones to the early show, and then get ready for the raunchy fun at the later show. Deacon Gray headlines both, with help from Bobby Crane, James Draper, and Kevin Klattman. End the weekend on a laugh note.
KEEP WESTWORD FREE...
