RedPeak Weekend Rundown (2)Looking for things to do in Denver this weekend? The RedPeak staff has your back.

Here’s a list of our top picks for Feb. 21-23.

Friday

Nature as Muse: Impressionist Landscapes from the Frederic C. Hamilton Collection This new exhibit features the Impressionist masterworks that Hamilton, a Denver-based philanthropist and the Denver Art Museum’s chairman emeritus, bequeathed last month from his private collection to the museum— its largest gift ever. Several 19th Century Impressionist artists –including Monet, Pissarro and Renoir– are featured in the show, which is on display until March 23.

Saturday

Worst in Show Inspired by the 2000 film “Best in Show,” this fundraiser for Freedom Service Dogs of America will feature the most beastly canines you’ve ever seen.  From 2 to 4 p.m. at Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum, dozens of dogs will compete in categories, like Cutest, Most Drool, and Special Talent for what’s sure to be a pawsitively good time. (Sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves.)

Big Band Boogie Bash of 2014 More than 130 high school and college musicians will participate in this day-long big band festival. In addition to concert style performances, the event includes a silent auction. General admission tickets are $15 ($10 for students) and all proceeds benefit the Colorado Conservancy for the Jazz Arts.

LUPEC Sweetheart Prom Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails is hosting its 6th annual benefit for The Prom Dress Exchange, which provides teens with attire for formal high school functions at little or no cost. The fun includes a DJ, a photo booth, a silent auction, corsages for sale and cocktails. And a prom king and queen, of course. Admission is a suggested $5 donation at the door.

Sunday

Lovesick: Denver 2014 With the tagline “The Wedding Event For The Cool At Heart,” this isn’t your traditional bridal show. In addition to the typical florists and photographers, the show features booze and burlesque! And it’s inexpensive. Tickets are just $10 online and $15 at the show.
