Dating in a recession is not easy. Even after being in a relationship for three years, I still get antsy if my boyfriend and I get stuck at home in front of the TV. Which is why I’m grateful for Denver 2 for 1 TIX, a joint program between the Denver Office of Cultural Affairs and VISIT DENVER that provides two-for-one tickets to local arts events.

Tickets change weekly. Through November 11, two-for-one deals vary: The Starz FilmCenter offers movie tickets for $3-$4.75, the Arvada Center offers tickets to Honk! for $5, and $5 also gets you tickets to Playback Theatre West.
