What’s worth knowing this week in Denver December 1 – 7, 2017? Wazee’s Supper Club closing, eBay’s Airstream pops up in Denver, and Colorado winter bucket list to-dos.
We have yet to see snow here in Denver (okay, except for that little blip back in October), but rumor has it that will be changing soon. What’s on your Colorado winter bucket list? A couple activities that should be…9 outdoor ice skating rinks and where to go snow-tubing in Colorado. And Steamboat Resort has launched a frequent skier program.
Izakaya Ronin opens in RiNo this weekend. Sadly, after more than four decades Denver institution Wazee Supper Club is shutting its doors. And, though it may be December, Post Oak Hall will be hosting a pop-up Texas barbecue with Pepperbelly Barbecue next Friday.

Discerning beer-drinkers have certainly shed the image of being less refined now that ordering a craft beer can be as intimidating as reading a wine list. And, the upcoming Beethoven and Brews event proves that beer and classical music can be a perfect match.
It’s time to snag a bottle of Stranahan’s once-a-year Snowflake whiskey.
The once dark and uninviting 38th Avenue underpass in northwest Denver is getting some light shined on it starting today.
On Sunday, disabled performers will hold an art exhibit and fashion show at Union Station’s plaza to raise awareness about our society’s focus on body image. The performers’ incredibly slow movements will give the impression that they are actually standing still, which I imagine will be amazing to watch.
So many pop-up holiday markets in and around Denver this month…and on Monday and Tuesday eBay will be popping up at Denver’s Christkindl market with their holiday Airstream filled with some of the most in-demand tech toys and other things. (And, there are a lot of small, local businesses using the eBay platform!)
Here are a few places to donate toys for kids in need this holiday season. And while you’re in the giving mood, don’t forget Colorado Gives Day is next Tuesday. It’s the perfect time to support your favorite local nonprofit!
Just announced this morning…Crooked Media’s Pod Save America will be coming to Denver in March.
As a parent who is often yelling, “Slow down!” at speeding cars in my neighborhood, I’m loving the STFD Louisville campaign. (Yes, it means what you think it means.) Full disclosure…I happen to know the guy responsible for launching this, but I’d appreciate it even if I didn’t.
What are you up to this weekend? I’m excited to head to the Holiday Flea tonight and maybe show the kids the Denver Parade of Lights, tomorrow. A few more things to check out…Larimer Square’s Annual Yuletide Window Walk, Littleton’s Holiday Shopping Night, and Cherry Creek’s Young Entrepreneurs Marketplace. And 50+ more things to do in Denver this December.
Enjoy the weekend!
