If you are 17 or younger, here's a way to have your Halloween and get an education, too: The Denver Museum of Nature and Science has announced that it will offer any kid dressed like a "vicious fish or other Amazon creature" this weekend free admission to the museum, including the current Amazon Voyage exhibit. All you have to do is show up at the ticket counter doin' your piranha thing and in you'll swim. Young ladies and gentleman, start applying your scales. Call 303-370-6000.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
