The temperatures have dropped but we’re still in the mood to get out this weekend and take advantage of everything that’s happening out there. From films to bacon and beer, they’re something for everyone.
The Denver Zoo got into the spirit of Denver Arts Week by hosting an art auction where a few of its resident animals used their artistic talents to create some really creative pieces of work!

It’s time for the 37th Starz Denver Film Festival! They are having a red carpet gala Saturday night at the Buell Theatre where they will be screening The Imitation Game, one of the most promising films of the year, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Nightly. Buy your tickets on their website.
Is there anyone out there who doesn’t like bacon and beer? We’d say that these days, those two things have become quite popular, and they will both be celebrated together in harmony at the Bacon and Beer Festival on Sunday at The Curtis. In its 3rd year, the Festival will be from 2:30-5PM and will bring together area restaurants and breweries to share creative bacon-based dishes with accompanying brews. Proceeds benefit Metro CareRing and Project Angel Heart. With your ticket you receive free samples and beer. Find out more on their website, including which restaurants and breweries will be there.
Sunday kicks off the newest exhibit at the Denver Art Museum – Brilliant: Cartier in the 20th Century. Take in all of the jewelry created between 1900 and 1975 while also learning about Cartier and the brand’s history as it rose to become one of the world’s preeminent jewelers. Tickets are on sale now on their website.
