We’re a green campus, but living green isn’t always convenient. Saving the environment can be expensive, time-consuming, or just plain annoying. That’s no excuse now to have power-sucking incandescent light bulbs though; you can exchange them for free CFL bulbs at Johnson Hall. Another suggestion is turning your bad bulbs into ornate ornaments. ‘Tis the season!
Remember Ambassador Wolf from Tuesday’s Collegian cover? They’re playing this Friday at Barr SS in Laporte. Where else are you going to get the opportunity to see grown men — and employed engineers, no less — wear wolf heads and howl at a barful of people? It’s $5, so head on over and party like an animal.

It’s First Friday again! This only happens once a month, so make sure you don’t miss it. Take a self-guided tour of the Fort Collins art scene, grabbing some free refreshments on the way. Most galleries will change up their exhibits around this time, so there’ll be plenty to see.
Biodiesel for Bands is an organization dedicated to reducing the carbon footprint of touring bands, and allowing them to travel more economically and efficiently. They do this by supplying bands with high-quality biodiesel. That stuff isn’t free, so they’re having a launch party and fundraiser at Hodi’s Half Note, featuring Post Paradise, Mosey West, the Mason Howlings, and Wasabi. Save the environment and enjoy good music for a donation of $5 to $10.

Who doesn’t love tacos? If you said you don’t, you are a liar. This Saturday, head over to Fuzzy’s on Elizabeth and watch a free Match Stick Productions movie premiere, “Superheroes of Stoke.” Hosted by Snowriders, this movie features the progression of skiing and snowboarding over the last 20 years, as well as some serious stunts in the snow. There will also be raffles and giveaways. Show up early to get a good spot and a taco. The tacos are not free, but they’re totally worth it, not to mention some of the proceeds will go to the Snowriders Club! Plus: drink specials. What else do you want?
