What’s worth knowing this week in Denver July 28 – August 3, 2017? The nation’s largest dragon boat festival is right here this weekend and the two Denver spots where drinking and axe-throwing go hand in hand. Plus, a few more things to know…
Busy playing in the mountains, friends, so I’ll just dive right into this week’s links…
The ChoLon team is bringing Kaya Kitchen to Avanti. Local(ish) opens at Union Station. The Way Back will close August 6 to relocate to Tennyson Street. Greenlight Lab is expected to open in RiNo any day.
Thunderbird Imperial Lounge in Sunnyside is no more. Tennyson Street’s Paddy the Yank has closed its doors. Wild Eggs on the edge of the Wash Park neighborhood also shuttered. And, after relocating to Uptown, Gumbo’s has now closed its doors for good.
This newly opened running store on Tennyson Street will soon be selling beer too.
Check out the feature Fast Company did on Denver’s beloved The Real Dill. (Yes, their pickles are fantastic, but I swear by their Bloody Mary mix.)
Why waste time throwing darts when you could be throwing axes at these Denver bars?
Tiny homes will be taking over Keensburg this weekend when the Colorado Tiny Home Festival rolls into town.
What are you up to this weekend? It’s the 17th annual Colorado Dragon Boat Festival in Sloan’s Lake (the nation’s biggest!). Here’s a few more fun options…Summer Paella Party at Bonacquisti Wine Company, Cheesman Park Art Fest, Cheese with Altitude Festival of Cheese, and the Underground Music Showcase in venues up and down South Broadway. Plus some things to do with the kiddos.
Enjoy the weekend!
