Inspired by a true story, Gold is the epic tale of one man’s pursuit of the American dream, to discover gold. Matthew McConaughey stars as Kenny Wells, a prospector desperate for a lucky break. He teams up with a similarly eager geologist and sets off on an amazing journey to find gold in the uncharted jungle of Indonesia. Getting the gold was hard, but keeping it would be even harder, sparking an adventure through the most powerful boardrooms of Wall Street.

This deal from Burger King is hot…or very cool, depending on your tastes. For a limited time, get any size coffee for just 99¢ — hot or iced. Anytime I see an offer for “any size”, I always think it’s best to get the large for maximum savings. However, it’s not wise, if you’re just going to waste it. On the other hand, ask for an extra cup and pour half of it for a friend or family member. The offer is only valid at participating locations.

Civil Rights Leader Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy is commemorated in Denver with what has grown to be one of the largest MLK Day celebrations in the U.S. — even larger than that of Washington D.C. Among the local events set to honor Dr. King is the annual Marade, on Monday, January 16 (held rain, snow or shine). The marade (a combo of march and parade) starts at E. Colfax Ave. (at Columbine) south of City Park. Participants strut their stuff straight west along Colfax, ending three miles later at Civic Center Park’s Greek Theater. The event is preceded by a 10 a.m. program honoring Dr. King at the I Have a Dream Memorial, with the actual walk stepping off at about 10:45 a.m. Festivities should run in Civic Center Park until about 1 p.m.
