Weekend events to ring in the new year include live streaming local bands and artists such as Jennifer Deann Scott and Ninety Percent ’90s.

If you’re looking for something more hands-on (and still virtual), make a cocktail or non-alcoholic drink with Apartment Bartender or paint the Mile High City on a canvas or bottle with Canvas and Cocktails. You can also opt to paint the Dunder Mifflin building from “The Office” and participate in trivia.

Read on for more virtual events taking place this weekend!
