Date Night

Can't find a date for the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver's Black Sheep Friday? Let MCA and Buntport Theater Company play matchmaker. The museum is looking for contestants for its version of The Dating Game: Win a Date With Buntport Theater. All you have to do is bring your A-game and field questions from the wacky Buntport troupe members; if they pick you, they'll take you on a date through the museum, "Buntport style."

MCA's Andy Lynes says that Buntport makes the perfect partner for this project, because the troupe's personalities mesh well with what Black Sheep Fridays are all about: putting a little weird in your night. "They feel like a really good fit in terms of what they do culturally -- combining a bit of seriousness with a sense of whimsy," he explains.

And no matter who wins the date, everyone can enjoy the action. "There will be a blow-by-blow account of the date as it happens, so you can sit in the café, have a cocktail and listen to what's going on," explains Lynes. "Or you're more than welcome to trail the date as it happens."

Make a date yourself for tonight's Black Sheep Friday at the MCA, 1485 Delgany Street. Happy hour starts at 5 p.m., with the rest of the festivities running from 7 to 9 p.m. Admission is $5 and includes access to all museum exhibits.
