Don’t forget that tomorrow is the last day of Denver Arts Week. Plus “classpass” for co-working, Denver’s best salumi makers, and a few more things worth knowing this week.
No matter the election outcomes you were hoping for, I think it’s safe to say that this week, and the weeks leading up to it, have been fraught with anxiety and emotion, which makes this week’s round-up of lighthearted local news an even more welcome distraction than usual. So, here’s what else has been happening in Denver this week November 11-17, 2016…
In honor of Veteran’s Day today, 18 area restaurants are saying thanks to retired and active-duty military (and some spouses) with a complimentary meal.
Deskpass, the “classpass of co-working” is coming to Denver. I’ve always loved the concept of co-working but with a perfectly respectable home office, I just haven’t been able to justify the commitment that most spaces would require. But for $99/month you can visit eight different area co-working spaces a month.
As a second-generation Italian, I grew up with the family tradition of gathering annually to make homemade salami. Never did I imagine it would become a thing that all the coolest foodie kids did. Here’s a round-up of Denver salumi makers who are making their nonnos and nonnas proud.
Think you can pull off a bowtie? Try out the bowties by Colorado company, (re)purpose bowties, which may be retro but are definitely not old-fashioned.
One of my favorite local makers, Spinster Sisters, is opening their second Denver shop. For fantastic all-natural soaps, lotions, shaving products and other great stuff, stop by their new Cherry Creek location for the grand opening tomorrow.
It just wouldn’t be Denver if we weren’t talking about the latest restaurant openings. Here are a few that are piquing local curiosity…Newly opened Fish N Beer has been generating some excitement in RiNo. (Because nothing cool ever opens there, right?) Richard Sandoval’s La Guerra brings Mexican cuisine to Riverfront Park. Neighborhood favorite The Irish Hound will be reborn as The Hound on November 14 with a new menu to go with its new name. It’s hard to follow an act like Denver’s beloved Le Central, but the recently opened Clyde is giving it a shot. And the soon-to-be-open H&D has been scattering the city with gold coins good for a free drink upon opening.
Thanksgiving is nearly upon us…here’s where to order your Thanksgiving pies. (Or perhaps just for a random Tuesday night.)
Despite the fact that there’s nary a flake in sight, here are a few tips for cheap ski and snowboard rentals so you can get ready to enjoy Colorado’s favorite pastime.
Finally…one thing I think we Denverites can all agree on is cheering on this 10-year-old entrepreneur from Broomfield on Shark Tank tonight.
What are you up to this weekend? Here are a few options for this weekend and the rest of the month. Enjoy the weekend!
