What to know this week in Denver December 22 – 28, 2017 (and beyond)? Where to eat on Christmas (Eve and Day), and what to do for NYE 2017. Plus, a few more things to know…
First off, I realize that December 22 through New Year’s Eve is a really long “week,” but as I’ll be checking out of here until January 1, I wanted to include a few things to know about NYE 2017, too.
Hopefully you’ve finished up any gift shopping by now. But, if you’re still a little shy, be sure to check out our gift guides to check everyone off that list…Denver Holiday Gift Guide (Part I): The Best Stuff to Give, Holiday Gift Guide (Part II): The Best Denver Experiences to Give, and Where to Find Last Minute Gifts in Denver: 5 Shops with Something for Everyone on Your List.
It’s been a long time since we’ve driven in snow. Here’s a quick snow-driving refresher if you forgot.
In case nobody delivered any holiday cookies your way (and you’re too tired/lazy/over it to make them yourself), here’s where to find the best cookies in Denver.
I was disappointed to see Tony’s Market on Broadway will be closing on December 31 to relocate down south. One of my favorite grab-and-go food markets!
Denver recently made the top 10 for Zagat’s Most Exciting Food Cities of 2017. (Though we’ve slipped ever so slightly down the list.)
And, you might be a Denverite if you’ve eaten Toro Pot. Or at least know what it is.
No desire to cook at home during the holidays? You don’t have to…here are seven Denver restaurants open for Christmas Eve, and 23 restaurants open on Christmas Day. Or enjoy a traditional “Jewish Christmas” at Rosenberg’s Deli.
If you plan to hole up at home this weekend, here are 8 boozy winter cocktails to make at home, as recommended by some of Denver’s top drink experts.
What are you up to this weekend? If you celebrate Christmas, hopefully you’re able to just relax and enjoy the long weekend rather than scrambling up until the last minute. Santa will be spotted around town for one last hurrah…at the Denver Aquarium, at Union Station, and at Larimer Square. Here are some more great ways to spend this holiday weekend plus a few more things to do with your kids. (And, don’t forget about Noon Year’s Eve for kiddos at the Denver Children’s Museum.)
Happy holidays and see you in 2018!
