In addition to getting a free ride on the G Line, you can grab dinner for free, too! The Crafty Fox is hosting a party to celebrate the opening of the nearby G Line with a free barbecue on Saturday, April 27. Grayson Little, a singer-songwriter who was on this season of American Idol, will perform, and just in case you need something harder than free soda to wash down your meal, the brewery will offer a cash bar.

Puppy Brunch at Hotel Teatro
Sunday, April 28, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Hotel Teatro
$5 suggested donation
Denver diners already adore brunch, but Hotel Teatro is upping the ante by inviting adorable, furry guests to its third annual Puppy Brunch. Meeting these puppies, many of whom will be available for adoption, is free, though donations are requested for Underdogs Animal Rescue, which looks for homes for animals that are usually chosen last — the true underdogs. If you give $5 or more, you'll get a complimentary mimosa when you move into the Nickel, the hotel's restaurant, for brunch (which is not free). For information about the shelter, visit the Underdogs website.

Local loose-leaf retailer Hickeys Tea, Craft Roots N' Apothecary and DoTerra essential oils will be sampling and selling products, as well as providing workshops and sharing health tips.
