As if you needed any other reason to go watch the office-drone classic Office Space at Red Rocks (details here) other than the simple fact that it's playing: Tonight's Film on the Rocks event is doing double duty as a Denver Tweetup. Local Twitter heavyweight @TheBigKlosowski has set up a registration page here to qualify you for Twitter VIP status, worth a dollar off admission -- and you get to sit with the cool kids in a special Twitter section. There's also a plan for some tailgating. Add @TheBigKlosowski to get a notification via Twitter when he's set the spot for pre-drinking.
He's been giving away tickets on Twitter all week for knowing Office Space trivia. So if you haven't joined the five-percent nation of Twitter yet, but can reenact the "O-face" scene word-for-word, maybe this is a good reason to get Twitting and meet some fellow fans. I won't be at this Tweetup (I'll be helping out with the Westword Showcase Awards ceremony), but I was at his last event, and I can say that @TheBigKlosowski and his merry bunch of Denver Twits knows how to have fun and make a stranger feel welcome. And even if you don't feel welcome, it's a movie, so you shouldn't talk too much anyway. Go be social with your social media buddies, and maybe cure that bad case of the Mondays I know is plaguing you.
