A little bit of history, a lot of laughter, and top-notch music this weekend in Denver.

Denver's got a little bit of everything going on this weekend to suit a variety of interests, from Latin dancing lessons to whiskey tasting and cigar rolling, to the UFC fight. Check out the night sky with Big Bird and Elmo, or take a journey to a simpler time with the Apron Chronicles, enjoy Chopin's best works in an intimate setting, or listen to a grammy-winning cellist play a concerto written just for him.
