Hard to believe this is the last weekend in January, but it's true — so let's make this one memorable. There are almost too many laughs to be had, social movements to join and, of course, beer to drink. Check the Westword calendar for even more fun.

Support those whose rights are infringed upon every day. For the folks whose voices are not heard, we have organizations like Denver Homeless Out Loud fighting to get a proper bill of rights drafted for the less fortunate. To celebrate the cause, there will be live bands, food, art and presentations about the group's mission. Let's get our community together in harmony for all.

Fire is just plain badass. The color, the heat, the danger, the beauty — it's a powerful force to be reckoned with, and some folks have mastered how to harvest it. Take a trip up the hill sometime this weekend for statues ablaze, dancers aglow, music to match, and projects to take home with you.
