Play free bingo, win concert tickets. It’s that easy at the Larimer Lounge, 2721 Larimer St., and Lost Lake, 3602 E. Colfax Ave.

Both open at 4 p.m. and bingo starts at 6 p.m. And if you’re not ready to go home after that, you can stick around for 8 p.m. shows from Pross (at the Larimer Lounge) or The Ephinjis (at Lost Lake).

And over at Grandma’s House, 1710 S. Broadway, they’ll be playing a different game for a different prize.

The regular Mario Kart tournament starts at 7 p.m. As usual, the winner takes home a growler of beer.

At Ratio Beerworks, 2920 Larimer St., they’ll be having a hilarious showdown for the Ratio Comedy Battle Royale.

Twelve comedians will face off in a bracket-style joke competition in which the audience decides who advances at the end of each round. Tonight’s comedians are Eric Henderson, Cody Spyker, Ben Bryant, Patrick Scott, Olivia Schyling, Corey Rhoads, Joshua Skillman, Jacob Erdmania, Amy Graham, Mina Thorkel, Mallory Wallace and Katie Parks.

Admission is free and the battle begins at 8 p.m.
