What’s worth knowing in Denver this week January 13-19, 2017? Where to get a pho burrito, anticipated restaurant openings, and how to become active in local politics.
January resolutions mean renewed commitments to things like, oh, I don’t know…exercise. Denver’s local breweries can help you keep those resolutions past mid-January (yes, really). Check out this (hopefully long-lasting) marriage of yoga classes and area breweries.
As you know if you’ve stopped by here before, I’m a big fan of supporting local business. Thrillist has rounded up a list of favorite local Denver businesses to support, including Denver Tool Library, Hope Tank, and Denver Bicycle Cafe. (Check back next week for a post on this last one.) Congrats to Tennyson Street’s Feral Mountain Company, who just won first prize in the national Calvert Foundation Small Business Competition. And, here’s one more reason to support local businesses…in just a few days Cherry Creek Mall will start charging for parking.
If you haven’t yet listened to Denver’s The Narrators podcast, you should definitely check it out.
In 2016 we bid a sad farewell to many local favorites. But, we have a lot to look forward to in 2017…The Stanley Marketplace is continually opening new spots through February, American Grind opens Monday in Avanti, and Westword predicts you’re going to love these 10 new eateries.
As if pho in a bowl wasn’t amazing enough, the local Asian-Latin food-truck-turned-bricks-and-mortar spot Chuey Fu’s just debuted a pho burrito. And, this Golden cupcake shop was recently named one of the best in the U.S.
303 Magazine has compiled this how-to guide for Denverites who want to become more active in local politics. As a mom, I found this 5280 guide to how to talk to your kids about discrimination to be helpful. And, get to know the organizers behind the upcoming Women’s March on Denver. (The Women’s March on Denver will be held Saturday, January 21, 9am at Civic Center Park).
What are you up to this weekend? A few interesting options…the Denver Stock Show (of course!), MCA’s For Me, From Me: Post-Holiday Market, and Budding: Locally Grown Art Exhibit. Plus, here are some more things to do in Denver in January.
Enjoy the weekend!
