Things to Do

Three Things to Do for Free in Denver This Week, November 23-25

This is a short work week, but it's long on fun — and there are some fantastic ways to kill time without spending a dime. Check out far-out art, dig deep into addiction and get real silly at a comedy show. Drop us a comment if you know of any other bargains around Denver, and check out the Westword calendar for more ways you can entertain yourself before turkey day.

The Mile High Rock Poster and Art Expo at Aloft Broomfield (1 p.m. Tuesday-Wednesday, free)
Get trippy up in Broomfield while checking out rock-and-roll-inspired posters, paintings and photographs. Legendary dudes like Jeff Wood, Richard Biffle and Mark Serlo will be just a few of the many coming to showcase their talent; you might even find a Christmas present for your hippie uncle.

Video Dialogue: Lisa Kereszi at Dikeou Collective (7 p.m. Tuesday, free)
 Dikeou artist Lisa Kereszi incorporates film into her work, showing tobacco ads of old to demonstrate how society has dealt with addiction over time. The result should be a smoking-hot discussion. 

Ratio Comedy Presents: Dave Ross at Ratio Beerworks (8 p.m. Wednesday, free) 
If you have company coming from out of town, show off your city the right way. In addition to weed and craft beer, Denver produces some very fine comedy. At Ratio tonight, Los Angeles comic Dave Ross joins local favorites Meghan DePonceau, Ian Douglas Terry, Nicole Conlan and more. Binging on beers and comedy is the perfect way to prepare for that turkey dinner.
