Tonight, the Civic Center Conservancy launches its Bike-In Movies and Music series with “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure.”

Pedal over to Civic Center Park for an evening of comedy, music and both of those things in a movie. It starts at 6 p.m. with jokes from Nathan Lund, followed by tunes from The Lucky Few. The movie starts at 9:15 p.m.

It’s free to attend, and food trucks will be on site. Bring a blanket or chair to park you butt on.


Go see this band:

They’re at the Hi-Dive at 8:30 p.m., tickets are $17 and you can thank us later.


Taste the South tonight at Backyard on Blake, 3040 Blake St.

They’re flying in fresh bugs and hosting a crawfish boil on the rooftop from 6 to 8 p.m. They’ll be served with house-made corn muffins, potatoes, corn, beer and wine, plus a side of funk from SoulTyme.

Tickets are $40.


Drop in on Renegade Brewing Company, 925 W. 9th Ave., from 6 to 8 p.m. and cool off with a beer float.

The brewery is teaming up with Peaceful Creations ice cream to make the sweet and boozy creations. For $12, you’ll get three ice creams paired with three beers. Get ’em while they’re cold.


It’s Sci-fi Movie Night at Sie FilmCenter, 2510 E. Colfax Ave.

Backed by the Denver Museum of Nature and Science (because nothing is more science-y than fake science?) they’ll be showing 1933’s “King Kong” at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $12 for members, $15 for non-members and $8 for students.
