If you need gifts for your friends and relatives and you've got no Cheddar to spare, then the Cheap Christmas Crapfare at the Museum of Contemporary Art is the place for you tonight.
At the Crapfare, which is part of MCA Denver's "Black Sheep Fridays," you'll learn how to make the crappiest of gifts with the crappiest of materials, gifts like cotton-ball snowmen, clothespin reindeer and macaroni art -- all while listening to DJ Postman slap some down tunes (ideally not crappy ones, but who knows, maybe Coldplay?) and slurping free eggnog.
But you do have to pony up for the booze. "No flasks," says Andy Lynes, director of the Crapfare. "Buy the booze here--we have a fine selection of Christmas spirits."
The Cheap Christmas Crapfare will be held at MCA Denver, located at 1485 Delgany Street, from 7 to 9 p.m. Happy-hour admission after 5 p.m. is $5, and the Museum will be open until 10 p.m.
