Curious Classes: Beginning Knitting and Crochet at the Denver Central Library (Monday) Want to learn to knit? Every Monday, the DPL's Fresh City Life hosts up to six beginning knitters and crocheters. No materials are required, and space is first come, first served. Meanwhile, more experienced crafters can hang out at Madame Defarge's Knitting Salon, where they can knit and crochet in good company. Cartoons & Comedy at Deer Pile (Tuesday) Comedians Timmi Lasley, Jim Hickox and Chris Charpentier will host Sexpot's always nostalgically hilarious "Cartoons & Comedy" show tonight that simulates childhood Saturday mornings. The comedians will riff on classic commercials and cartoons from the '80s and '90s while you sit back and eat cereal. Free Day at the Denver Botanic Gardens (Tuesday) Spring is one of the loveliest times of the year to visit the Denver Botanic Gardens, so take advantage of Earth Day's free admission prices and walk among the flowers today. From the Rock Alpine Garden to the lush greenhouses, the gardens are full of pretty plants to get you in the spirit of celebrating our planet. And the gift shop -- our Best Museum Gift Shop in the Best of Denver 2014 -- is the ideal place to buy a Mother's Day present...or something for yourself!
