Things to Do

Three Things to Do for Free in Denver This Week, August 10-13

Summer is still going strong and so is the free fun around town. Whether your vice is booze or caffeine, we have you covered this week, and we're throwing in comedy and karaoke as well. Check the Westword calendar for more events, and if we missed any bargains, let us know in the comments section below. 

Story Time! at El Charrito (9 p.m. Tuesday, suggested $3 donation)
For the most fun you can have on a Tuesday, by far, head to El Charrito. There you'll join Cody Spyker, Corey Rhodes, Steve Vanderploeg, Ben Bryant and Preston Tompkins for an evening of awesome one-liner jokes — the best kind of jokes. Mara Wiles has a tale to tell about the road she took to become a one-liner comic and then Anthony Crawford will wrap up things with a set of his own. The show is technically free, but a $3 donation is highly encouraged. 

Great Divide Can Release Party at Local 46 (6 p.m. Thursday, free)
Not only can you taste a new line of lineup of Great Divide cans, but you can sing their praises — and plenty of other things — during free karaoke. You'll need to bring a few bucks to get a can of one of your favorite brews, but stick around because Great Divide will have free stuff to give away and then karaoke. Baby, you were Born to Run.   

Caffeine Crawl Denver Kickoff Party at Huckleberry Roasters (7 p.m. Thursday, free) 
Denver is going to be abuzz this weekend with coffee tours all over the city. At the free kick-off party you can learn all about the crawl and also check out some latte art, which is always magical.
