Strike Forth

It’s only right that a benefit for the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest LGBT civil rights organization, should have a wedding theme: The folks who support the group do so in part because they would dearly love to get legally hitched in their own state, and gay marriage is one of many current HRC issues. For now, though, they’ll just have to make do with bowling together, preferably at HRC Colorado’s Bowl and Chain bowl-athon, today from 2 to 6 p.m. at the storied Elitch Lanes, 3825 Tennyson Street.

But not without some of the favorite accoutrements of marriage: Along with an afternoon of crazy bowling and prize-winning, participants will compete in bouquet- and garter-toss contests, win prizes for their nuptial-ready garb and eat wedding cake; the registration fee of $35 includes not only all of the above, but an HRC membership, as well. Discounted group package deals are also available, ranging from $150 for five bowlers to $210 for eight; visit for reservations and information.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
