Three Things to Do for Free in Denver, November 3-6

If you emptied your pockets paying November rent and partying on Halloween, you can still have fun this week. As 2 Chainz says, "Feelling good, bills paid...ride da wave." This week we're riding the wave of nature, comedy and movies, and it's all free. As always, find more listings in our online Westword calendar, and tell us about any bargains we missed in the comments section below.
