Whether it's a seeing a classic film, learning a fibers technique or enjoying a fantastic concert -- Fresh City Life has a little something for everyone this week.
Tonight is our ongoing celebration for the Denver Public Library's Film Series 10th Anniversary. In the second installment of our Westward the Women collection, we'll be showing Destry Rides Again, a film that marked Marlene Dietrich's Triumpahnt return to the screen after several near career-ending films. The series continues for two more weeks: next films up are The Harvey Girls and Johnny Guitar (with Joan Crawford as the head cowgirl!) Showtime 6p in the B2 Conference Center. Details here.
Our Day Trippers fibers classes are a great way to spend a lunch hour or two. Learn the basics of crochet in Christa Rogers workshop on Wednesday. Drop by the Fresh City Lounge (Level 1 near the west entrance) and you'll have a chance to see our fun noontime classes. We can even sign you up for a future workshop or let you know about our evening fiber events. Our last beginning knitting workshop of the year starts in September, so if you're feeling the desire to make beautiful handmade gifts, check it out. Wednesdays at noon in the Fresh City Lounge.
Finally, an encore performance by Erhoopla Variety Show caps off the weekend. On Sunday, August 19 from 2-3p, Brian Mullins and Mike Fitzmaurice play the Chinese erhu, a two-stringed bowed instrument, along with a variety of other Chinese instruments. Enjoy traditional Chinese tunes mixed with contemporary and American music played on these classical instruments. Concert begins at 2p in our Schlessman Hall.
