Watch “Family Guy” and get drunk. The show s “Star Wars” trilogy is all the rage.


The third installment of “Family Guy’s” remake of the (original) “Star Wars” trilogy, “It’s a Trap,” will be released Dec. 21.

Peter is so excited he’s still passed out drunk from excess celebration.

Denver club Lipgloss at La Rumba, 99 W. Ninth Ave., is hosting a Family Guy Trilogy Screening Party at 8 p.m. Friday.

The first installment, “Blue Harvest,” spoofed “Star Wars,” while “Something, Something, Something, Dark Side” parodied “The Empire Strikes Back” — and now “It’s a Trap” pokes fun at “Return of the Jedi.”

Afterward, tunes will be spun by Wisconsin house DJ Mr. Physix; boyhollow, co-founder of Lip Gloss and Denver indie rock DJ; and resident DJ Chase Dobson.

The first two installments will be screened followed by a sneak peek of the final chapter.

In Peter Griffin’s esteemed words: “Now I may be an idiot, but there is one thing I am not, sir, and that, sir, is an idiot.”

Don’t be an idiot. Laugh it up (in Denver) fuzzball.

Info: 8 p.m. Friday; 303-572-8006; free.

Get wrecked

Ugh. So sick of holiday parties: Drunk Santas, ugly sweaters, parades of light…

Bah! Humbug!

Embrace it. We still have weeks left.

Cassleman’s, 2620 Walnut St., Denver, on Thursday hosts a Wreck the Halls party, filled with inappropriate behavior, including a scantily clad runway show with fairytale-themed calendar men, go-go dancers, an ugly sweater contest (of course), food, booze and prizes.

Plus, remember that one chick, Emily Schromm, from MTV’s “The Real World: Washington, D.C.”?

Me neither. Who still watches “The Real World”? Oh, you do. Loser.

Point: Schromm will be at the party. Neat.

Denver’s DJ Rockstar Aaron and New York DJ Tony Moran will spin tunes.

Hey, Scrooge — accept the holidays. I’ll hold you.

Info: 7 tonight; 720-242-8923; $10-$15.


Speaking of holidays…

The Denver Zoo is animalicious.

Well, minus the horned creatures. It’s a phobia. Leave me alone.

Oh, and elephants, rhinoceroses and giraffes. Large mammals are daunting.

Agreed. I need therapy.

Through Jan. 2, the zoo, at 2300 Steele St., Denver, is animated with its annual Zoo Lights.

Note: You can’t spoon a polar bear if it’s snowing. Bring a flask to keep warm.

Note deux: At your own risk. It’s not legal.

Postscript: The anteater is creepy, too. He bunks with the monkeys and paces anxiously. Now you hold me.

Info: 5-9 p.m. daily through Jan. 2; 303-376-4800; $4-$8.
