Page 2 of 2

7. Stoney's Bar and Grill Turkey Bowling Night Grab your best (only) pair of bowling shoes and get ready to knock down some pins at Stoney's. For the second year in a row, Stoney's will grease up the floor and let you have your way with a turkey and ten pins. The event is totally free, and there are drink specials -- $4 Blue Moons and 2-for-1 Bacardi Oakheart drinks.

6. Thanksgiving Eve Canned Food Drive at Lucky Strike, Denver Pavilions Bring canned goods to Lucky Strike at the Denver Pavilion on Wednesday, November 21, and you'll strike it rich with a free game. Sadly, you don't get more free games for each can you donate, but you do get the satisfaction of giving back...

5. High Tea at Molly Brown House Museum Nothing beats getting out of the house, especially when all your family comes to town for the holidays. If you can't escape without your relatives, take them to the Molly Brown House Museum for a guided tour complete with tea and sandwiches. The two tours on Thanksgiving Eve start at 10:45 a.m. and 12:45 p.m., and the cost per person is $25.

4. Thanksgiving Eve Skate at Edge Ice Arena Edge Ice Arena in Littleton is offering a free skate rental with the donation of a nonperishable food item that will go to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office Food Drive. The two skate sessions on November 21 are from noon to 2 p.m. and 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.; rink fees prices are $7 for those 18+, $5 for 6-17, and $3 for those under 6.
