It’s time again for the Ratio Quiz Show at Ratio Beerworks, 2920 Larimer St.

By now you know the drill: Teams of audience members compete with a panel of “experts.” If an audience team wins, everyone gets cool prizes. If the panel wins, everyone gets lame prizes.

For this round, the theme is ’90s rock and, yes, there will be gloriously dated video clips.

It’s free to play. Sign up starts at 8 p.m. and the game starts at 8:30 p.m.


We’re entering that delicate period of time when you can start carving pumpkins without worrying that they’ll rot before Halloween, and Stoney’s has you covered.

Get down to the bar (1111 Lincoln St.) between 7 and 10 p.m. to carve your jack-o-lantern and try a bunch of pumpkin beers. You’ll just need to make a reservation by calling 303-830-6839.


Happy second anniversary to the party that invites you get wild on a weekday. The Lituation is celebrating two years tonight at the Hi-Dive, 7 S. Broadway.

It’s free, 21+ and starts at 9:30 p.m.
