The holiday party swagger is in full effect this weekend. It's rounded out by everything from a Natty and Nice reggae party to GirlGrabbers' Mistletoe and Mistresses party going down at Theory and Practice Gallery. GirlGrabbers (Gypdahip, Qknox and Brikabrak) are bringing out the holiday cheer with the Plush Brothers (Chris Sarlo, Shane McAlister, Neon Brown) for an evening of music, art, drinks and some sexy presents. Page down to get the drop on what's going down this weekend.
Tonight, you can catch Miami princess Trina rocking at Club Ignite for the grand opening of Star Struck Fridays. The first one hundred ladies will enjoy free Nuvo drinks and general admission is $10. The dress code is "grown and sexy," which basically means leave your basketball shorts at home and dress it up! You have to be 21+up to party.
On the reggae tip, DJ BloodPreshah and DJ Uplifter will be rocking Chances Bar & Grill for the holiday edition party, Natty & Nice. There's no cover at this party, and you must be 21+up to get down with the vibe. This party is tonight as well, and the tunes will be ripe for the dancing.
Tomorrow night, DJ Mu$a is celebrating his birthday with a little help from his friends, Narky Stares, Gypdahip (on double duty for the evening, also rocking with GirlGrabbers) and Peter Black. The throw down goes down at Meadowlark and starts at 9 p.m.
After that, the aforementioned Mistletoe and Mistresses party being hosted by GirlGrabbers, will already be going strong and serve as the after party for DJ Mu$a's birthday get down. It's $5 to get into Theory and Practice Gallery and GirlGrabbers are promising a classic time of music and art.
If you're looking for a night of music and poetry, stop by Skylark Lounge for poetry readings from Ken Arkind, Charly "City Mouse" Fasano, and Garin Daum at and music from Land Lines and Sweet Tooth Meat Tooth. 21+up to party, of course.
If you happen to be headed up to the mountains, specifically Vail or the Beaver Creek area, catch Denver locals Mind Heist dropping some laser and electro in the opening spot at Under Armour's VIP Party in celebration of their new specialty shop in Vail Village. Florida moombahton sensation South Rakkas Crew will be shutting' things at the party, which runs til the wee hours at Samana's.
Finally, the GooseBar in Boulder presents Boulder Zoo, a party promising a special guest DJ and designed for all attendees to be rockin' some sort of animal print. No cover, and FYI, GooseBar is notorious for starting some epic nights off right, and this one should be right up there with $10 open bar wrist bands. That's right, $10 all you can drink all night.
