Doors are at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 6:30 p.m. If you’re feeling fancy, you can pay $20 to sit in the VIP area.


At Civic Center Park, the free entertainment for the evening is a showing of “The Blues Brothers.”

One more free thing: It’s comedy night at Ratio Beerworks, 2920 Larimer St. from 8 to 10 p.m. Here’s the lineup:


And it’s Mixed Taste time again.

As always, two speakers will take 20 minutes each on unrelated subjects, and when they’re done, an audience Q&A will help connect the topics. Up this week: prohibition with Jason Hanson, director of interpretation and research at History Colorado, and Bob Ross with Doug Blandy,  director of the Arts and Administration Program at the University of Oregon.

It starts at 6:30 p.m. and tickets are $20.
