As the unemployment rate hits an all-time high, more Denver establishments are hosting recession-inspired events. But The Walnut Room’s “Cheap Ass Wednesdays” have been ahead of the curve, going on now for two years.

The deal touts no cover, live DJ’d music, $1 domestic drafts, and $3 well drinks. The party starts each Wednesday at 9 p.m.

The DJs change each week, and spinning tonight is Rise Above, described by assistant general manager Samantha Lemons as an “indie, scenester-type DJ.” Lemons notes that karaoke is featured on certain Wednesdays, and the next singing session is scheduled for November 25.

Bonus: The Walnut Room will soon be opening up a new location—The Walnut Room Pizzeria—in the Baker neighborhood at 2 Broadway. The location will offer the full menu of the original Walnut Room, although it will not host live concerts.
