What do you need to know this week in Denver March 30-April 6, 2017? Cherry Cricket’s re-opening, FIKA Coffee Passport on sale now, and Dazzle Jazz is relocating.
Yes, I realize this Denver Dweller weekly links edition is arriving a little late…Saturday morning instead of the usual Friday afternoon. I could toss it off as an April Fools edition, but that would be a pretty lame prank. Really it’s just the result of a triple whammy of domestic life…home renovations, sick kids, and spring break. The latter was once great fun, but certainly takes on a different meaning when you spend it juggling contractors and shuttling kids to the doctor. Anyway, on to the weekly links…
FIKA Coffee Passport went on sale this week. Featuring 2-for-1 craft coffee specials at 28 Denver craft shops and roasters, the passport booklet is $20/book and valid April 1 through July 31.

Long-time Denverites will be thrilled that the Cherry Cricket finally re-opens on April 11 with five days of celebratory festivities to follow. Blue Sparrow Coffee joins the Backyard on Blake businesses in RiNo. Estes Park’s Smokin’ Dave’s BBQ is coming to Denver. Lon Symensma’s Concourse is coming soon to Stapleton. I can’t get enough of all the Southern fare restaurant openings lately…first Low Country Kitchen (in LoHi) and, coming in May, Tupelo Honey Southern Kitchen & Bar.
I’m a little anxious to see Dazzle Jazz is moving. This place has played such a role in my Denver life…from my first date with my husband to fantastic Mother’s Day jazz brunches, and a lot of visits in between. The new location will be announced April 3, and I’m hopeful that it’s not too far. Maybe we should get in one more boozy brunch just in case?
Stop by your favorite indie record store on April 22 for Record Store Day. (And, yes, Denver has some Earth Day happenings, too.)

No need to surreptitiously sip at the dog park anymore…just bring your pooch to The Watering Hole, the dog park and drinking spot hybrid.
You’ll want to bookmark this…Denver Eater rounds up where to eat in Denver’ best dining neighborhoods. I was a little surprised to not see the up-and-coming Berkeley neighborhood included, but then they released Where to Dine in the Berkeley Neighborhood this week, too. Another one to bookmark…Westword’s Best of Denver.
What are you up to this weekend? Some options that have piqued my interest…Forward Food Summit, The Vintage Whites Market, and Tulip, Fairy and Elf Festival. Plus what to do with your kids this weekend and more April fun.
Enjoy the weekend!
