You know what they say about the weekend… Wait… do they say anything about the weekend? I don’t think they do, but they should. Or maybe they do, and I’m just not aware. Hmm…

Whatever, we don’t have time for this nonsense, it’s time to figure out what your plans for the weekend are! We spoke with those beautiful people at EveryBlock to round up all the hot weekend activities for you to plug into your calendar.

So, whatcha doin’ this weekend?


Grow Our Own Grains

Who doesn’t love grains? Who doesn’t love a healthy serving of barley, wheat, oats, rye, qunioa, corn, millet, amaranth, or sorghum (whatever the hell that is)? Wouldn’t you just love to grow all that stuff in your own yard? “But I can’t, I don’t live on a farm.” You don’t have to if you check out this instruction course on how to harvest, thresh, winnow, and cook these grains that are often not grown within city limits. Grow your own grains right at home! // 4 p.m., $20 suggested; Denver Sustainability Park; 2500 Lawrence St.

Transform Your Life with the Happiness Program

Everyone deserves some happiness in their lives. But in today’s go-go society, your mind can be stuck dwelling on the past or worrying about the future. What we need to realize is that happiness is right here in the present moment, we just have to harness it. During The Happiness Program you can reconnect with that natural happiness in you by getting into some low-impact yoga, guided meditation, and learn some skills for handling negative emotions and situations not at the expense of your happiness. // 6 p.m.; $395; Denver Art of Living Center; 1201 S. Steele.


Food Bank of the Rockies Event

Give back this weekend and help the Food Bank of the Rockies prepare enough food to provide over 6000 meals for needy folks. Volunteers must be at least 14 with an adult and 16 unaccompanied. Sign up with your friends and give back! // 9 a.m.; Free; Food Bank of the Rockies; 10700 E. 45th Ave.

FEATURED EVENT: Art From Ashes Presents: Running of the Gays

If you’ve always wanted to step into the heels of a drag queen and sprint down 17th Ave tumbling and laughing, now’s your chance! Running of the Gays, a fabulous annual fundraiser for Denver’s award-winning and transformational Art From Ashes youth poetry program. This event may feature the campy, fun, and popular act of putting on spike heels and falling all over yourself (or not, miss thing), but this event is really to show support for LGBTQ kids who might not be getting it anywhere else. Take this chance to validate LGBTQ youth and have a ball doing it! //11am; $35 registration, Spectators free; Steuben’s Food Service; 523 E. 17th Ave.

RiNo – A Tour of Where Art is Made
