What’s worth knowing this week in Denver, July 21-27, 2017? Fried chicken pop-ups, Denver’s first cheese block party, and Colorado dating apps.
Did you get to check out Slow Food Nations here in Denver last weekend? There were soooo many events, and we were only able to visit a couple, so I enjoyed this recap of Slow Food Nation moments we missed.
The Budlong Hot Chicken of Chicago will be popping up at The Source’s RiNo Yacht Club this Saturday (11 to 5 only). (Plus, here’s another not-to-miss fried chicken pop-up this month.) Birdcall, from the team behind Park Burger, opened in Five Points this week. Chef DJ Nagle (of Humboldt Farm Fish and Wine) has joined Briar Common Brewery in Jefferson Park. And Park Hill’s Desmond Bar and Grill has closed.
One of my favorite local shops, Cheese + Provisions in Sunnyside, will host Denver’s first “cheese block party” this week.
Looking for more fun foodie events in and around Denver this week? RiNo’s Resistance Dinner pop-up fundraiser, Odell Brewing Company in Fort Collins hosts its annual backyard barbecue, plus a few more events for gastronomically inclined.
Mayor Hancock proclaimed this past Monday “Debbie Kuehn ‘Cookie Lady’ Day” in honor of Denver’s famed “Cookie Lady” who passed away last month. Her family gave away free cookies from the last batch of her dough the same day. I didn’t get to partake this week, but I sure enjoyed my share in years past.
Nonstop Denver-to-Paris flights? Oui, oui! (S0rry…couldn’t resist.)
Next weekend (July 27-30) the Underground Music Showcase will be visiting a number of local Denver venues. Fan of whiskey and tiny spaces? Check out the Traveling Whisky Emporium, a unique “tiny whisky house,” built by HGTV’s Tiny Luxuries. (Psst…do you live in the Baker neighborhood? Check out the special neighborhood ticket pricing here.)
Enjoy the weekend!
