Righteous pop art on picture frames

Prepare to have your mind blown by some glass you didn't just smoke out of, at Keep it Glassy. From tattoo artist Mike McGinley, this pop art exhibit (held at Five Points bar Meadowlark) features your favorite film and music characters stenciled, etched, and sprayed onto massive pieces of glass. And since it's a bar, there'll also be discounted cocktails in your glass. Just look at McGinley's ingenious 2Pac/ Spock mashup, which imagines what it would be like if Pac and Nimoy had a beautiful love child. His catchphrase? "Live than I did". This work successfully mimics the stained glass windows commonly found in religious settings and grandma's house, though here, the Virgin Mary is depicted as a Day of the Dead-type skeleton. McGinley found this piece of glass in this street, and turned it into quite possibly the coolest coffee table ever made. Any argument to the contrary is Dead Wrong.

1. Meadowlark 2701 Larimer St, Denver, CO 80205 (Five Points)

A music venue that features everyone from down-tempo DJs to acoustic sets, this basement space is a local go-to favorite. While their musical offerings are eclectic and wide-ranging, the drink and protein-heavy eat options are just as crowd-pleasing. The affiliated Meadowlark Kitchen next door offers one of the city's most indulgent beef burgers, topped with a mountain of cheddar cheese sauce, candied bacon, an onion ring, jalapeño confit, and a poached egg, all on a brioche bun.
