It’s time for your weekly chance to win concert tickets because someone plucked from a basket a bunch of balls with numbers that match some numbers in a line on a card you have!

Happy Hour Bingo at Globe Hall, 4483 Logan St., starts at 6 p.m. and it’s free to play. Afterward, you might as well cough up $18 and stick around for The Districts and Cymbals Eat Guitars at 8 p.m. 

As always, there will be barbecue.


It’s Ignite Nite at History Colorado, 1200 Broadway, and the theme is “climb.”

There will be a chef making homemade granola, a band playing bluegrass, time to talk with curator about artifacts from the Colorado Mountain Club collection, a screening of 1927 footage of climbers on Longs Peak and more.

It’s happening from 5-8 p.m. and tickets are $10-12.


And there are two ways you can get your fix of sweets and booze tonight.

At Ratio Beerworks, 2920 Larimer St., they’re hosting Good Sugar Baking for cookie and beer pairing, with creative treats like their Chocolate Chip Cookies N’ Cream, Banana Cream and Frosted Tomato Cookie. The event runs from 6-8 p.m. and costs $15.

At Stem Ciders, 2811 Walnut St., they’ll be pairing up their brews with the goods from Glacier Ice Cream, including their Strawberry Lime Sorbet, Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwich, Salted Spanish Caramel Gelato and Chocolate Coconut Cappuccino Gelato. Drop by anytime from 6-9 p.m. to try them out.
