By Clara Geoghegan, for Denverite

Welcome to the weekend, Denver. We’ll have one less hour, but still plenty of time to do something fun. 

Bring your old clothes and unwanted vinyls to the Museum of Contemporary Art on Friday to make room for some new stuff.

To celebrate International Women’s Day, check out the opening of “Bold Women Change History” at the Byers-Evans House Museum. Learn about how Colorado voters passed suffrage (for white women) in 1893 — and the western women who made it happen. Or, celebrate modern-day ladies at the No Man’s Land Film Festival. 

If the spring forward on Sunday has you feeling behind, visit the Clyfford Still Museum for a guided meditation to recenter yourself. Or, kick back and enjoy the Adam Bodine Trio at Dazzle. With an all-you-can-eat comfort-food buffet and breakfast drinks, that might be just what you need to decompress. 

Have at it!
