Westword: Green Team Bike Clinic & Lucha Libre & Laughs Best Weekend Events

Ten Things to Do in Denver for $10 and Under (Seven Free)


After a particularly lively start, August shows no signs of slowing this weekend. The Colorado Classic and Velorama are rolling into town, and the National Poetry Slam is wrapping up its annual competition here. Meanwhile, artsy delights await at all kinds of venues, including a pop-up gallery, a historic park and even a drive-in movie theater. While hot tickets are fetching inflated prices for some of the the weekend’s marquee events, all you need to experience any of the ten events listed below is a crisp Hamilton and an open mind. And seven of them are completely free.

Free Bike Repair Clinic
Saturday, August 12, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
Terrapin Care Station

With the recent opening of several new bike lanes along its main thoroughfares, the Baker neighborhood is growing increasingly bicycle-friendly. As many bike owners know, however, it can be all too easy to procrastinate when it comes to general repair and maintenance. Fortunately, the fine folks at Denver Relief Consulting’s Green Team are hosting a free bike and wheelchair repair clinic from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. at their former storefront, now occupied by Terrapin Care Station. Celebrate the neighborhood spirit while getting the help you need to get back on two wheels. Visit the Facebook events page to learn more.

Lucha Libre & Laughs: Killing the Business
Sunday, August 13, 8 p.m.
The Oriental Theater

After a series of free events at venues scattered all over town, Lucha Libre & Laughs returns to the Oriental Theater for Killing the Business, a high-flying and side-splitting blend of brawn and buffoonery. Kicking off the ringside action with a battle of speed versus strength, the yoga-hewn Mike Sydal seeks to settle a score with the beefy Royce Isaacs, and that’s before LLL favorites like Lonnie Valdez, Japanese wrestling legend Kikutaro, the Left Coast Guerrillas and more step back into the ring. With comedians Chance Moreland, Timmi Lasley, David Rodriguez and Anthony Crawford filling out the bill, $10 seems like a pittance for all the entertainment in store. Join Nick Gossert, Bobby Valentino, Alabaster Cain, Nathan Lund and Sam Tallent on Sunday, August 13, to see why Westword has named Lucha Libre & Laughs Denver’s Best Comedy Night for three years running. Visit the Oriental Theater’s events calendar to learn more and buy tickets.
