If the weather this past weekend put a damper on your plans, you can catch up on all that fun you missed this weekend. Keep reading for three of our favorite free events, and check the Westword calendar for more options.
The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou
Infinite Monkey Theorem
7 p.m. Wednesday, free
Vices come in all shapes and sizes these days. For many today, it comes rolled up — but at the Infinite Monkey Theorem, it comes in a glass served with a side of vengeance. Celebrate hump day with a big gulp of red along with a cinematic classic. Steve Zissou liked Campari on the rocks, but you can easily enjoy The Life Aquatic with a can of Moscato.
Mostly Harmless Late Night Talk Show: Dates from Hell: Stories of romance gone wrong
Mutiny Information Cafe
8 p.m. Thursday, free
Mostly Harmless keeps its feet planted in two different eras. It started out as a punk zine, which turned into a punk podcast, and is fully prepared to go back to analog when the Internet implodes. Check out this week's talk/variety show featuring comedian Cody Spyker, musical guests The Windermeres, and special guests yet to be announced. There's free beer to go along with the good time, too.
Ratio Comedy Presents: Noah Gardenswartz
8 p.m. Thursday, free
Headliner Noah Gardenswartz grew up breathing Rocky Mountain air, but he now calls New York home. He's been featured all over TV, the Internet and at clubs across the country, and now Noah Gardenswartz will be back in town at Ratio. His bag of jokes is heavy, so lighten up tonight at this free performance.
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.
