This week is your last chance to have fun in 2016 — and that shouldn't be hard with these three events. You can peruse art, be part of a hysterical live audience or just play cards to rock and roll. Check the Westword calendar to see what else you can squeeze into the last days of the year.
Holidays at the Clyfford Still Museum
Clyfford Still Museum
5 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, free
You can sneak a free peek at the Clyfford Still Museum any time after 5 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, and even take guided tour of the museum and its current show, The Works on Paper, an intimate look at over 250 drawings by Still. Click here for more info and tour details.
Ratio Comedy: Ian Douglas Terry Live at Ratio Recording
8 p.m. Wednesday, free
Local transplant jokester Ian Douglas Terry gears up for the first live audio and visual recording of Live at Ratio. Terry's been crushing standup all over town for the past few years, and has opened for some really big acts. Go give that dude your best chuckles — those will be recorded, too. Geoff Tice and Nicole Conlan warm up the evening.
Gary Daniels & Friends Play Music and UNO
8 p.m. Thursday, free
Should be a heck of a night at the Merc, a classic Denver hangout. Bring a deck of UNO cards if you have them, because the night starts off with a tournament of the game. After the last "UNO" is called, the music starts; six bands will perform, including Pizza Time, Surf Mom, Gary Daniels and more.

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.
