Brunch takes center stage at the Denver BrunchFest. Danielle Lirette
Consider this your warning: There are so many good things to do on this week’s list of the 21 best events in Denver, you’ll want to grab your tickets early. From an Itchy-O album release party (!) to the High Plains Comedy Festival and plenty of art and food events, you’ll have no reason to stay home this week.
News flash: Yarn costs money. And without yarn, the hardworking Ladies Fancywork Society yarn-bombing squad can’t wow Denver residents with their fiber-fantastic yarn-bomb installations. To help fund their efforts in the CRUSH 2017 street-art extravaganza in September, the ladies are throwing a Ladies Fancywork Society Summertime FUNdrai$er with help from Ratio Beerworks, complete with popsicles, beer and LFS swag. And because LFS advocates yarn-bombing for all, you’ll be able to grab a pre-made crochet swatch at the Tag Bar to hang off the beer hall’s patio. Gather with the LFS crew from 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, August 22, at Ratio, 2920 Larimer Street; raffle tickets for excellent Denver-centric prizes will be sold for $3 (or two for $5) to benefit the cause. Learn more at the Facebook event page; go to ladiesfancyworksociety.com for everything LFS.
