Friday 

Hooty Hoo Matt Scobey’s latest installation (named for an OutKast song) is made of wood and concrete, and on view at Fancy Tiger Clothing now through May 31. Bonus: If you want to take home part of the art, you can. Visitors can buy the tiles that make up the modular mural for $35 at atlasceramics.co.uk

Lived/Re-lived Off-Center @ The Jones has teamed up with The Narrators to bring the true stories of Denver locals to the stage. Three of those stories were then given to different creative teams to re-imagine and perform live. The performances involve aerial dance, music, video, puppets and more. If you can’t make it to the show this weekend, you still have two Fridays (March 14 and 21) left to see it.

Denver Savor the Flavors Walking Tour Stroll through historic Denver while enjoying local fare during this two-hour tour. You’ll visit LoDo, East Colfax and South Pearl to stop into specialty shops, restaurants and markets. The tour kicks off at Pajama Baking Company at 3 p.m. and ends at 5 p.m.– just in time for Happy Hour!

Saturday

Unleashed Kickoff Yappy Hour Stop into Mile High Mutts for food, drinks and doggie playtime. Your $25 donation gets you hors d’oeuvres and two drink coupons. Eighty cents of every dollar of your donation goes toward the Denver Animal Shelter, and cat and dog food donations will be accepted for the Colorado Pet Pantry. Plus there will be several raffle prizes, so take cash!

Sunday

Cochon 555 Warning: this event may not be suitable for vegetarians. Created in response to the lack of heritage breed pig awareness, this nose-to-tail touring culinary competition serves 10,000 guests more than 11 tons of pork! The Denver leg of the tour –held at the Ritz-Carlton Denver– includes a live butchering, as well as preparation of a whole pig in an Asian-speakeasy style.
