Things to Do

Go out on the town for National Night Out

Tonight is National Night Out -- a program started by the National Association of Town Watch that raises awareness for crime prevention in communities across the country. And several local restaurants and organizations are getting involved by hosting cool events for the cause, all offering good reason to get out for National Night Out. Rooster & Moon, 955 Bannock Street, is throwing a neighborhood party in its parking lot from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. tonight with live music, snacks from Golden Triangle restaurants, lawn games and beer. Visit the Golden Neighborhood Association's website for details.

Frank's Kitchen, 2600 High Street, is hosting a hamburger happy hour from 6 to 8 p.m., featuring $1 sliders and buy-one-get-one deals on shakes and malts. Patrons who stay for the Whittier Neighborhood Association meeting afterwards can grab sliders for just 50 cents. Call the restaurant at 303-296-3838 more information.

And Capitol Hill United Neighborhoods, along with the Alamo Placita Neighborhood Association, will host CHUN's annual BBQ from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at the Tears-McFarlane House, 1290 Williams Street. The family-friendly event features free food, beverages, games, music and more. Go to the Facebook page for more details.
