Wild West Night, $1 Flip-Flops, Summer Nights at the Museum

Brake for breakfast

Bicyclists can gear up for free breakfast at more than 160 locations across the metro area as part of Bike To Work Day on Wednesday. Chow down on this freebie from 6:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. Select sites also offer free water and snacks at Bike Home stations for the post-work ride from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Some even plan full-blown parties with Happy Hour eats, drinks and live music.

Horsin’ around

Corral the family for a good time in both Highlands Ranch and Broomfield, thanks to Keystone Resort’s Wild West Night, featuring a bike-in movie. The free family-friendly events take place from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Redstone Park (3280 Redstone Park Cir. in Highlands Ranch) on Wednesday and County Commons Park (13200 Sheridan Blvd. in Broomfield) on Thursday. Aptly, the film is “An American Tail: Fieval Goes West.” Besides the movie, little buckaroos can enjoy lassoing with wranglers from Keystone Stables, a strider bike course, s’more treats and games.

Flippin’ good deal

No one can “flip-flop” on the savings with this sale. On Saturday, Old Navy sells adult and kids flip-flops for only $1 per pair. Most stores open at 9 a.m. The offer is for select styles, while supplies last. There’s a limit of five pairs per customer.

Museum musings

The Denver Museum of Nature and Science is always full of adventure and, this summer, savings, too with “Summer Nights @ The Museum.” For $15 you can explore just about all they have to offer on most Fridays from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. through August 22. That’s more than 50 percent off regular prices. The all-access ticket includes entry to “Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed,” Discovery Zone, Laserium shows in Gates Planetarium, IMAX films and special activities, plus snacks and a cash bar. Each adventurous night out is themed to a different topic, so you can make it a regular weekend stop. Admission only includes access to the venues and activities listed. The rest of the museum is closed.
