Three Things to Do for Free in Denver, January 30-February 2

We're only a few days away from finding out how much longer this winter will last, courtesy of our friend Phil the Groundhog. Until then, we have reading and art to catch up on, as well as a free movie to watch. Check the Westword calendar for even more to do this week.

Winter of Reading Kickoff
Ross-Broadway Library
4 p.m. Wednesday, free

It's cold, and football season is just about over, so you might as well start reading. Join the Denver Public Library's Winter of Reading program and connect with your community while reading great books. At this kickoff, you can grab a snack, make sure your library card is in good standing, and learn what volumes will be featured this season.

Opening Reception for The Lonely Crowd
Helikon Gallery and Studios
6 p.m. Wednesday, free

Helikon Gallery and Studios is co-hosting this group art show with Abend Gallery. The mashup exhibit will tackle the theme of loneliness and how it relates to pain, isolation and solitude. Come see what artists like Rebecca Mason Adams, Tom Bagshaw, Jessica Gordon and Rob Rey have to offer on the subject.

Groundhog Day Movie Party
North Gate Taphouse
6:30 p.m. Thursday, free

There's a new taphouse on the south side of town, which has a gorgeous patio boasting wide-open views. But on February 2, all eyes will be on the screen inside, which will be showing Groundhog Day, a Bill Murray classic. This is the ideal time to check out this watering hole, sample brews from its local taps, grab some treats from the food truck, and enjoy a free movie.
