The Demented Divas present: Buttcracker! at Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret, $25 The Demented Divas are at it again with their holiday classic, The Buttcracker! Denver's most fun and unusual queens bring their seasonal show to life with new songs and new twists on classic holiday tales. With hits like "Schweatty Balls" and "I Want A Boob Job For Christmas," these girls promise to make you laugh while you enjoy the old-school cabaret feel of one of Denver's best venues.

Pre-Thanksgiving Salsa and Bachata Bash at Denver Turnverein, $5-$10 Whether you're new to the dance or an accomplished salsa dancer, this party is for you. Starting with salsa and bachata lessons for beginners, this two dance-floor party gets into full swing later in the night for a chance to show off your skills. A little exercise before the marathon-eating session that is Thanksgiving couldn't hurt.

Robot Turkey Laser Kiss at Milk, tickets at the door If salsa's not your thing, Milk has plenty to offer for dancers. This back-alley hangout holds two rooms of eclectic music bumping all night long with DJs Roland K and Slave 1 playing everything from Joy Division to The Editors to Screamin' Jay Hawkins.

Chuck Roy and His Dirty Little Turkeys at Comedy Works, $12 Comedian Chuck Roy brings out the best in local talent for a night of laughs that only a man like Roy could curate. The show promises to be dirty, silly, hilarious and, of course, turkey-themed.

Eef at Lila B. Lounge (inside Comedy Works South), Free If comedy isn't your thing, don't worry -- the Lila B. Lounge is located just inside Comedy Works South and provides a nice, relaxing place to enjoy live music, cocktails and a delicious and diverse food menu. Check out Dutch artist Eef tonight, as she brings her blend of soulful variations on classic blues styles to the room.
