What’s worth knowing this week in Denver October 13 – 19, 2017?  Grand Coffee Bazaar returns, Colorado chefs make TV debut, and $1 deals throughout the city tomorrow. Plus, a few more things to know…

Happy Friday the 13th! Are you looking for something Freaky Friday-ish to do tonight?

This new study says there are 17 U.S. cities with better food than Denver. Orlando and Tampa have better restaurants than we do? Sorry…not buying it.

Pieology Custom Pies opens soon in Golden Triangle. Wewatta Point will begin serving sustainable seafood in LoDo on October 16, and is accepting reservations now. Quick Fish started serving poke at LoHi’s Avanti F&B. And Gourmet sausages and a biergarten land in Stapleton at Dog Haus.

Eat your way through Denver with just a couple of bucks tomorrow…in honor of the first annual Breakfast Burrito Day (proclaimed by Mayor Hancock), you can get $1.25 breakfast burritos at Santiago’s, or get 99 cent breakfast burritos at Asado Rico (normally closed on Saturday), or score a free breakfast burrito at Illegal Pete’s. Then pop over to Peteybird’s new bricks-and-mortar location for $1 gourmet ice cream sandwiches.

Denver Chef Justin Brunson of Old Major will be hosting a Food Network show focused on, unsurprisingly, meat.

One of the world’s best restaurants is coming to Denver for a pop-up. (The bummer is it’s invite only.)

The annual Grand Coffee Bazaar returns to Denver tomorrow.

I can’t believe I’m typing this but…The Purple Martini is back. No joke. (I may have imbibed one too many there once or twice in the early aughts.)

Top Chef’s Colorado season will be premiering soon. This is big news in my house…our 5-year-old fan swore he spotted them filming all over town a few months back. (He didn’t.)

One of Denver’s oldest barber shops is closing after 64 years.

This Denverite is launching an “anti-tourist” company to show visitors the real character of Denver.

The 40th annual Denver Film Festival announced its red carpet line-up.

After two years of construction, Confluence Park is set to re-open tomorrow.

Ski season starts today at A-Basin! Here are a few tips to prepare now for hitting the slopes later.

What are you up to this weekend? The WhiskyX (tonight!) looks like a phenomenal time. I’d also love to check out Denver HaHo Market, Maker Faire Denver, Pumpkin Festival at Denver Botanic Gardens (Chatfield) or Westword Feast. Plus, some things to do with the kids and more October fun.

Enjoy the weekend!
