Country at the Cabaret?
Denver's own Jake Schroeder of Opie Gone Bad and Jim Dalton of The Railbenders go live and unplugged in an intimate duet at Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret in the historic Daniels and Fisher Tower—the first "skyscraper" to break Denver's skyline in 1910. "Opie Gone Country" promises a fresh approach to old school country and a chance to check out a venue listed in the National, Colorado, and Denver Historic registers. Wed March 29, 7:30 p.m. Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret, 1600 Arapahoe St. Tickets $10, reservations recommended. For more information or tickets, call 303-293-0075 or visit www.lanies.com. Theatre
Be in the Know
Curious Theatre cut the middleman out of gossiping when it arranged for four fascinating Denver personalities to share their secrets with the rest of us. Get the goods on Holly Kyleberg ("Socialite of the Year"—Westword), Ellen Hart Pena (world class runner and former First Lady of Denver), Mel and Janie Master (Mel's Restaurant and Bar), and Mickey Zeppelin and Susan Wick (Denver developer and artist) in the theatre's first annual benefit, Denver Stories. Written by the local celebs themselves, these short comedies will put you on the inside of the Mile High scene.

Buy Me Some Peanuts and Cracker Jack...
So they went 67-95 last season. So they were a bunch of newbies. So they're not the Yankees or the Sox. So what? Who doesn't love a ballgame in the spring, especially opening day? Snag a sunny spot in the Rockpile at Coors Field to root for the Rockies at the season opener against Arizona, and have yourself a cold one for America's favorite pastime. Mon 2:05 p.m. Coors Field. 2001 Blake St. Tickets $4-$47. For tickets, visit colorado.rockies.mlb.com. Shows
Auto-matic Fun
You're cruising down the highway in your sleek new Ferrari, a 12-cylinder 612 Scaglietti with 540 horsepower.... And wait, then you wakeup. Not to worry, you can get your fill of the newest '06 models (and drool excessively, if necessary) at the Denver Auto Show this weekend, where over 40 auto manufacturers will be on hand. Make sure to check the special equipment booths for the must-have car accessories that might make your '98 Subaru Outback feel more like the Lexus you should be driving. Wed-Sun, times vary. Colorado Convention Center, 700 14th St. Tickets $10, sold at the door. For more information, visit www.denverautoshow.com.
