What do you need to know in Denver this week February 10th-16th, 2017? Local tips for the Valentine procrastinator, spend TWO nights with the Dread Pirate Roberts, and something called skijoring.
Valentine’s Day is next Tuesday. Don’t worry if you forgot. From what to do to where to eat to what to buy and where, Denver local media has you covered…
6 places you can still get a table for Valentine’s Day. (As of two days ago, anyway!)
And, if you’ve got nothing else planned, you can always get married for free in Denver on Valentine’s Day!
And, if all the Valentine talk makes you cringe because you happen to find yourself alone this year, don’t despair. Seems you’re more likely to find love here than in (almost) any other state. Perhaps that’s why Denver was recently named one of the most popular places to move? Although US News & World Report recently called Denver the second best city to live in. (Second?? Whatever, Austin.)
Perhaps you remember that I mentioned last week the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to watch The Princess Bride with the Dread Pirate Roberts right here in Denver? Turns out it’s actually twice-in-a-lifetime…there was such a high demand that they had to add a second night.
In food and drink news…Cherry Creek’s Departure has added a dim sum cart, the new owners of My Brother’s Bar say they won’t change a thing, apparently pho and ramen aren’t the only noodle soups worth eating in Denver, and Dirt Coffee, the coffee shop that employs young adults with autism, is opening a second location.
As if it’s not enough that we live in a city with so many fantastic food options, Denver’s chefs, brewers and coffee roasters are also doing their part to stand up for refugees and immigrants, and create a welcoming environment for all. Have I mentioned that I love this city?
What the heck is skijoring? Apparently it’s the new sport where cowboys and skiers mingle and it’s happening here in Colorado.
What are you up to this weekend? Some options…Winter Wine Festival, Mile High Beer Fest, L’Electrique Dollhouse Circus, and Denver Zoo Free Days (Sun-Mon). Plus a few things to do with your kids. And a few more local happenings later this month.
Enjoy the weekend!
