What’s going on in Denver this week October 21-28, 2016? Lucky pennies worth picking up and why people are asking to be locked up in seemingly unescapable rooms across Denver.
On one of the beautiful fall days this past week, I found myself admiring the city view from Millennium Bridge after a great lunch with my husband at Brider over on Platte Street. I love hanging out in our Berkeley neighborhood and sometimes forget how fun it is to explore Denver’s other incredible neighborhoods. And, have you checked out Brider yet? I guess I’m a little late to the party since it opened back in January, but now that I’ve been I can’t wait to go back. They call it fine-food-fast, but I call it awesome comfort food that feels just right for fall. I’d definitely recommend the curry and the polenta and meatballs…although perhaps not together. (Then again why not?)
Here are few more things worth knowing this week…
Everyone is talking about the new bakery that just opened in Five Points. The Rolling Pin, just next door to Rosenberg’s Bagels & Deli (now open if you missed that!) promises to be a European bakery with a French focus, and their pastry menu already has me salivating.
Who needs pumpkin spice lattes when you can sip on Denver’s seasonal fall cocktails?
It seems I have to stop yelling, “Don’t touch that!” every time my kids pick something up off the ground because there are 10 “lucky” pennies hidden throughout Denver worth $1,000 each.
Have you spotted the art of the self-dubbed Be Love, the purple people painter? The anonymous muralist has been brightening up buildings across the city.
This 10-year-old Colorado kid’s photographs will soon be featured on Denver’s Folsom Custom Skis. How cool is that?
Get a real-life Harry Potter experience with the Denver Escape Room’s Fantastic Beasts Challenge, opening on November 1. I’m a bit claustrophobic, so this is definitely not for me, but I do understand how you might be intrigued by this. If escape rooms are your thing (and apparently they are becoming quite the thing), 303 Magazine offers a guide to more escape rooms in Denver. And, if you need more thrills after that, pop over to Denver’s first virtual reality haunted house.
What are you up to this weekend? A few interesting options…Glow at the Gardens at the Denver Botanic Gardens, James Beard Celebrity Chef Dinner, Boo at the Zoo, and the Bloody Mary Festival. Here are some more fun October options around Denver. Plus, things to do with your kids this weekend.
Enjoy the weekend!
