    Plus, Boulder Outdoor Cinema, 'Aliens,' hiking, live tunes and beer
    07/23/2014 07:24 PM MDT
    Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art's Summer Games are starting Thursday night. Round 1, 6 to 8:30 p.m., Street Ping-Pong and Trivia. Obviously not as cool as Boob Ball (but also not as biased toward those of us with grand sweater kittens), this event will fill 13th Street up with tables all set for you to grab a paddle and go ... play Ping-Pong. Keep any other paddle activity to the boudoir. The Civic Plaza will have trivia that'll test you on Boulder facts, sports and art. If you bring a T-shirt, you'll get to screen-print your own jersey to wear to the rest of the games.
