Things to Do

Three Things to Do for Free in Denver, July 11-14

Get out there, have some fun and do some good this week. Over the next few days you can hear stories, see art and watch sports — all for free. Below you'll find details on three of the best free events in town; check out the Westword calendar for even more to do. 

Raconteur Denver: First Inebriation
Carbon Beverage Cafe
7 p.m. Tuesday, free

The memories will pour out at this bi-monthly storytelling night, which this round focuses on our first buzz. Poet Brian Foley, comedian Timmi Lasley and podcaster Sam Pike will regale us with tales of their first time getting fugged up. Following that, audience members are encouraged to share their stories, too. 
Fort Greene
5 p.m. Wednesday, free

Denver is a growing city in large part because it's a creative city, and the folk at From the Hip Photo want to celebrate that. So they're throwing a happy hour tonight, when Tyrel Hartman will host the comedic stylings of Jacob Rupp and Zac Mass. Kenyon Sky Dellecave will exhibit art and the Hope Tank will have a pop-up shop, too; beer from New Belgium should keep the party flowing. It's all free; get your tickets here
DKBC Dolls and Balls
Barnum Park
7:30 p.m. Thursday, free

The ladies from the Denver Kickball Coalition put in a lot of time helping out Girls Inc., and it's all come down to this: a female kickball competition complete with a fundraising raffle. Bring a six-pack and enjoy the action; it's free to watch — but bring cash because you'll want in on a chance to win some of those raffle prizes and do good in the process.
