If you can't smell it, the National Western Stock Show is still shit-kicking. Check out nationalwestern.com for the various events this weekend, but on Monday and Tuesday, there is a special event for all of us canine-obsessed homies. SuperDogs, a 20-dog clan that brings us a show chock full of tricks, stunts and comedy. The pups bring on the action, choreographed to fun tunes. From little Pugs to big ol' Labradors, watch our favorite fuzzies fly through the air, through mazes and through tunnels.
The show is on Monday at 2 p.m. and Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. in the National Western Complex, 4655 Humboldt St., Denver.

Denver Diva series
Denver local art and apparel shop, MegaFauna, 3102 Blake St., in the River North Art District, is opening its Denver Diva series Saturday with a reception from 6-10 p.m. This exhibit has local artists pairing various Denver neighborhoods with a pop-culture personality.
For instance, I'd say LoDo goes hand-in-hand with, say, Miley Cyrus bucking on a longhorn cow, donning a jock strap and pasties.
The Ballpark neighborhood may be more Katy Perry-esque in some stupid sparkly Beiber Nikes and a Rockies cap pounding John Mayer in the View House bathroom.
Then we've got East Colfax, where Robert Pattinson is sucking down $2-you-call-its at the Squire. Capitol Hill is reserved for Vampire Weekend, where the boys are sipping on saisons in their sport coats and ironic tattoos. South Broadway has Elvis shooting whiskeys at the Skylark.
And in Cherry Creek, Kim Kardashian demands a six-mile radius town shut-down so she can shop.
So, this event is nothing like that, but you get the picture. Head to the reception Saturday night where select famous personalities who resonate with Colorado culture are exhibited on canvas (real example: Rhianna in Five Points). Artists will be in attendance, there will be food from Gigi's Cafe, tasty beverages and an after party at Cold Crush, 2700 Larimer St., Denver from 11 p.m-close.
Bring extra cash because MegaFauna has badass local gear — including quirky Broncos merch created by local designers.

Hallelujah! Holy shit! Where's the Tylenol? (Name that quote.)
My siblings and I only speak in movie quotes. And if someone doesn't know the line, they have to figure it out on their own — NO GOOGLING — even if it takes them years.
The Denver Film Society and Twist & Shout record shop on east Colfax have put together a Music and Movie Trivia Night every Monday at the Henderson Lounge inside the Sie FilmCenter, 2510 East Colfax Ave., Denver.
Since the music shop and movie theater are neighbors, the event will feature cult, classic and contemporary trivia to teams of four. The final round is Jeopardy-style, where teams can wager accumulated points. Prizes feature gift certificates to Twist & Shout or the Sie FilmCenter or bar tabs. There will be drink specials and it's free to play. Info: on.fb.me/1cpOtfR
Meerkats in 3D
I'm not quite sure what meerkats are, but they're fuzzy so they're sexy.
They look like prairie dogs wrapped in ferrets spooned by mongoose. Mongeese?
Anyway, see them up close and personal at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science on the huge IMAX screen, with "Meerkats 3D."
Watch them grow from pups in this National Geographic film at the Phipps IMAX Theater, 2001 Colorado Blvd., Denver.
