Problem of Leisure, bitches….

Guess what? It’s someone’s birthday again! Today, we’d like to wish a happy, crazy, naked-lady infested birthday for our most specialist of political writers, Cap’n Colleen!

That’s right. She’s celebrating this weekend at the Pink Elephant Saturday night, a new bar with all these fruity but good drinks, with burlesque all night. It’s across from P.S. Lounge in the Bluebird Beat area. You should totally go.

And now: what else are the writers doing?

Angora:

When I’m not going to Colleen’s birthday party, I’ll be putting the final secret touches on our super fabulous Donnybrook Valentine’s Day Party. I don’t know if you remember our last EHS Bastille Day Party…that’s okay, I didn’t either because of those Hurricanes. Anyways, more details later.

Anton O. Masia:

It is in the humble opinion of Anton O’Masia, Donnybrook Poet Laureate

That if you need to spend seventy two American dollars to learn to love poetry

You are in a situation dreadfully, most dreadfully, unfortunate.

Nonetheless, this is happening in El Museo de la Lakewood

Soulshine Fashion Show celebrating Berenices’ Salon’s fifth anniversary at La Rumba Nightclub (9th and Acoma) Featuring Spring fashions from Denver area boutiques, including Ella Bleu, Unity and Frolick on 32nd. Presentation by Fashion Photographer Lauren Garceau DJs Michael Trundle and Tyler Jacobson.

High Fashion Silent Auction featuring Lauren Garceau photographs, Toms Shoes and more.

Raising funds for Women’s Bean Project – helping Denver women beat the cycle of poverty and unemployment, The Food 4 Africa Project – feeding African children whose circumstances place them below the poverty line and raising awareness for Toms Shoes for Tomorrow – providing shoes for children in need.

Daytonboy:

This isn’t exactly a group event, but I’m totally going skiing for the first time, which is retarded since I’ve lived in this fucking state since the year 2000, which was a retarded year. Maybe you could find a sweet photo from “Better Off Dead” of Lane Meyer skiing on one ski to post with this, because that’s going to be me up at Copper this weekend, all screaming and freaking out and getting in good with an annoying French exchange student that’s about to be my g-friend. Not that I need a g-friend, but I’m just saying.

Col. Hector Bravado:

Friday and Saturday – It’s great when one of your best friends is also one of your favorite MCs.

D.O. is back with his new collaborator, JaQe. They’ll be at Club Vinyl with Styles P on Friday. At The Roxy with D.E.N.T. on Saturday.

Don’t fuck up and miss both of these.

28 Deep:

Friday – Denver Art Museum – local bands + art = i will be there

Saturday – the Pink Elephant grand opening weekend. our very own burlesque club in D-town (located at the old ps 1515 on colfax).

Sunday – the Mars Volta at the Fox – sold out – but I will be taking pix!

And check out the Denver Post blog to see her pics, as well as show reviews by a bunch of us!

Guido Sarducci IV:

Friday I plan on resting up because Saturday is gonna be like one long weekend all rolled into one long night. As you may have heard by now, Cap’n Colleen is in town and celebrating her B’day. And before that I will be at a party so big it we will have to rename the gathering a “Hoyt!” as in Hoyt Meyer’s B’day Bash.

For anyone who isn’t fortunate enough to be invited to these very exclusive events I would suggest going to see the lovely, lovely ladies in Bela Karoli.

    Nothing against the Horseshoe, Goose or DJ Hot to Death (they are all friends of our Academy), but the party is gonna be going down at the Meadowlark.

    And don’t forget the all-star Drag the River drunkfest, tonight at the 3 Kings and tomorrow night in Fort Fun at the Aggie. Bring a spare liver.

    Of all the pictures you could’ve chosen, Angora, they had to be ones where my tongue is hanging out.

    Sigh…I’m too flattered to be embarrassed, so I’m already over it….

    Can’t wait to see you guys Saturday!
