Here at Denverite, we’re pretty big fans of dogs. They’re great. And that’s why I’m very excited to say that the National Western Stock Show is featuring some very, very good dogs today.

The doggy tricks, aerial stunts and “comedy antics” (!?) of the Xtreme Dog Show are happening from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at 4655 Humboldt St. Tickets for just the dog show are $15.


It’s time for another round of the Ratio Quiz Show, where teams of audience members take on a panel of “experts” for bragging rights and prizes at Ratio Beerworks, 2920 Larimer St.

This game’s theme is “Seinfeld.” As always, prizes for the audience will be lame if the “experts” win, but prizes for the audience will be great if an audience team wins.

It’s free to play. Sign up starts at 8 p.m. and the game begins at 8:30 p.m.


You’ve got less than a week now to catch the Tony Award-winning “Fun Home” at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, 1385 Curtis St.

The critically acclaimed musical based on Alison Bechdel’s best-selling graphic memoir is only in town through Jan. 22, but tonight and tomorrow night will present your best shots at getting good seats (and seats with your friends).

Tonight’s show is at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $30-105.
