By Shannon Robinson, for Denverite

Hello, Denverites! Here are my picks for the weekend:

Enjoy a play or musical with new performing arts lineups this weekend including The Phantom of the Opera and The Barber of Seville.

Check out the final week of the Denver Film Festival.

Dine in the deep at the Denver Aquarium and watch mermaids perform while you enjoy breakfast somehow!

Denver has a ramen festival and a beer and doughnut pairing. In one weekend!

Seems like there’s something for everyone so no excuses. Get out there.
