Hear them tell stories at 8 p.m. at the Buntport Theater, 717 Lipan St. Admission is free, and beer and wine will be available by donation.

The Colorado Symphony Orchestra and Spangalang Brewery are joining forces for a beer tasting with hors d’oeuvres and a small ensemble performance of Ludwig van Beethoven’s music.

From 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Spangalang, 2736 Welton St., they’ll be serving 4-ounce beer samples to the sweet and moody sounds of Mr. Beethoven and raising funds for the CSO.

Tickets are $45 and can be purchased at the door. For $65, you can also get a brewery tour and souvenir glass. The event is 21+.

Get over to Mutiny Information Cafe, 2 S. Broadway, and catch a free showing of the documentary “Los Punks: We Are All We Have” from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

The film captures the punk rock scene in South Central and East Los Angeles — a community led by Hispanic teens and young adults.

This week, the outdoor movie series at ViewHouse, 2015 Market St., is bringing “The Big Short” to the yard.

They’ll be serving free popcorn and offering half-off Coppola wine glasses and bottles with the purchase of an entrée. If it rains, the event will move inside. The whole events lasts from 7 to 10 p.m. Bring a blanket.
