Saving money doesn't have to mean staying in and staring into the void. You can still get out this week and enjoy free events, which include everything from a James Bond flick to a teen Hunger Games virtual reality tournament to a day of strolling around at the Denver Zoo. Check out the online Westword calendar for a full roster of events, and share info on more free activities in our comments section below.Tomorrow Never Dies at the Denver Central Library (Tuesday)
Fresh City Life's James Bond series continues with a different 007 period: the Pierce Brosnan era. This 1997 flick finds our hero trying to stop the advent of World War III while also coming up against his former lover.
Minecraft Hunger Games at Anythink Libraries (Wednesday) Though we don't live in as bleak a dystopia as the popular Hunger Games series, you can enter a virtual reality of the games today at Anythink Library branches all over the state. Tweens and teens are invited to participate in a virtual version of the fight- to-the-death game today. Register online to ensure your space.Free Day at the Denver Zoo (Thursday)
Free days at the Denver Zoo are always a treat. Wander the grounds, see the zoo's new animals -- including Billy the elephant and Zevy the zebra -- and enjoy a day of wildlife and free fun.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
