Things to Do

Three things to do for free in Denver, August 25-28

There's plenty of free fun on tap this week, whether you're into learning, partying or both. Check out a '90s hip-hop space talk, dance like it's thirty years ago, or laugh at some comedy. You don't have to work hard to have a good time before Labor Day weekend.

If you're looking for other events, check the Westword calendar, and if we missed any good free deals, share them in the comments section below.
