Denver Upcoming, Fun Weekend Events

Valentine’s falls on a Friday night this year which means you’ve got basically zero excuse for skipping date night if you’re coupled up. Forgot to make those reservations? How about a beer and chocolate pairing? Or a crafty terrarium making class at a brewery? Or perhaps you’re going into Valentine’s weekend alone, finding the most comfortable position on your couch to eat pizza in. That’s cool, but maybe reconsider, as there’s an anti-Valentine’s drag show, a free punk rock concert, and a big gooey grilled cheese festival. Now go forth and bask in the joy of your love, whether that’s for your significant other or for melty cheese and bread. 

Enjoy a beer and chocolate pairing

Friday, February 14
Denver Beer Co Platte Street and Arvada
How do you one up the traditional box of chocolates? With beer, obviously. From 11am-11pm on Valentine’s Day, Denver Beer Co is giving you the chance to enjoy two of life’s greatest pleasures. Indulge in five different chocolate-based treats from the Chocolate Lab along with five 4oz beer pours. The best part? This tastes just as good whether you’re single or coupled up.
Cost: $20

Make your own custom Valentine’s revenge effigy

Friday, February 14
Grandma's House
If you’re single, why spend Valentine's night sulking alone at home when you could spend it exacting revenge on your exes? Bonus: you’ll also get to enjoy some brews. Grandma’s House will provide everything you need to create an effigy of anyone who’s done you wrong, so put that negative energy to work and unwind with some festive crafting and brews.
Cost: Supplies are free with the purchase of a beer

Build your own terrarium at a brewery

Friday, February 14
The Empourium Brewing Company
Whether you’re single, coupled up, or just want to celebrate your love of plants, you can get crafty at this Valentine’s night event. Twig & Leaf will provide all the supplies you need to build a succulent-filled terrarium to take home, and you can enjoy some beers while you’re at it.
Cost: $25

Go to a late night, anti-Valentine’s drag show

Friday, February 14
Dairy Block
The Thrice Pop-Up series is bringing French Punk to the Dairy Block with a series of events that’s kicking off with a drag show which is the perfect escape on Valentine’s night. Along with the show, you’ll also get to enjoy cocktails from the Run for the Roses pop-up bar.

Go to a secret anti-Valentine’s concert

A secret location in City Park West
Concerts from SoFar Sounds are not your typical live music experience. The acts and location are kept secret, but you can always expect an intimate night of live music and a little side of adventure.
