From the Starz Denver Film Festival to classic rock, there's a lot going on this week -- but if you're saving money for the holidays, here's the best gift of all: Plenty of the fun is free! You can laugh while you eat cereal, learn robot takeover tactics or simply get your buzz on. For a complete list of entertainment options, go to the online Westword calendar -- and let us know about any bargais we missed in the comments section below.
Deep Eddy Vodka Industry Challenge at Larimer Lounge (Tuesday, free) Here's a party for the folks who work in the service industry -- or friends of those folks who can talk them into making them their +1. DJ PAGOSA, Callie Belo and SF1 will provide the entertainment, and there will be free booze. RSVP at DenverDEVchallenge@gmail.com to attend. Warm Cookies of the Revolution: Stupid Questions, Stupid Talents at McNichols Building (Wednesday, free) Thanks to Warm Cookies of the Revolution, the civic health in Denver is thriving. This group always asks the hard-hitting questions and gets discussions going. Tonight, the lineup includes drone-industry insiders and app-makers, who'll be talking about what will happen to the human race once robots enter the workforce. RSVP here for updates.
Cartoons & Comedy at Deer Pile (Thursday, free) Laugh with renowned comedians Andy Juett, Andrew Orvedahl and very special guest Rory Scovel, as they reminisce and joke about the cartoons we all grew up with. Since it is November, the theme will revolve around being thankful -- and we can't help but be thankful for this old gem. Bring a couple of bucks to donate for free beer and cereal.
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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
