Four Mile Free Day
Four Mile Historic House
12 p.m. Friday, free

Get a breath of fresh air and discover Denver from a time before the yuppie box houses and traffic. Enjoy free tours of this twelve-acre farm, hay rides and tasty treats from the summer kitchen. While you're there, pet the animal friends.
Variety Night
Mercury Cafe
7 p.m. Friday, $10

Ten bucks is a steal for the level of entertainment you'll get at the Mercury tonight. The Romero Theater Troupe debuts a historical play about a conscientious objector from WWI. Come find out what the professionals from the Black Actors Guild are going to come up with. There's no variety without music, so enjoy tunes from Total Goth, Jobless and the Milk Blossoms. Shout-out to this show for donating proceeds to Planned Parenthood and the ACLU.

We Still Like You: Denver #8
Comedy RoomRoom
7 p.m. Friday, free

We all have stories that are pure sin — tales we should take to our graves. However, after this evening of shame-laced comedy, there will be no need to keep those secrets bottled up anymore. Hear the woes of jokesters Harris Alterman, Hannah Duggan, Nancy Norton and more. In between, they'll let members from the audience dish some dirt as well.

Be the first to get that selfie with the new mural up on the ’gram.
