Things to do in Denver this weekend, that don't totally suck

There's some holiday with hearts and chocolate and cards or whatever happening this Sunday. If you don't already have a reservation somewhere, you're getting take-out. Again. If you're passing on the day of love this year, there's legitimately plenty to do instead!

Galentine's Day Trivia
Ok, so Galentine's Day (a Holiday created by Parks and Recreation's Leslie Knope) is technically on Saturday, but celebrate a night early by getting a team of your best girls together to kick some trivia butt!
Friday 2/12 - online event

Galentine's Day Drinks and Crafting
If trivia really isn't your thing, maybe you and your gal pals would rather make something! First Draft Taproom in RiNo is hosting a Galentine's Day wreath making class. Grab a kit and crowler and take your making party home, or reserve a space, and get two drinks with your ticket!
Saturday 2/13 - First Draft Taproom $40

Cupid's Undie Run
Like pretty much everything else in the world, this year's event will be a DIY run. Grab a few friends, and your warmest under-things, and head out for a chilly sprint to benefit Neurofibromatosis research. All you have to do is register, and run!
Saturday 2/13 - online event

Go Rowing, then Brunching
A little sweat session is sure to warm you up on the coldest day we've seen this year. Tickets to this workout at RowHouse in Greenwood Village are just $25, and that includes brunch afterwards! Best part, this is NOT a couples event. WOO!
Sunday 12/14 - RowHouse Greenwood Village/Early Bird $25

Celebrate two holidays at once
Sunday is V-day, but some establishments (like Brass Tacks in LoDo) are getting an early start on Mardi Gras! Chow down on NoLA-inspired food and drinks, which will be a warm welcome on a chilly Sunday!
Sunday 2/14 - Brass Tacks, $35

Drink in the streets
Olde Town Arvada is letting the good times roll this entire weekend. Visitors are welcome to stroll the streets with a drink from one of their many restaurants and bars, while perusing food and local goods. Take a ride-share, or the Light Rail, the G Line stops right in Olde Town!
