This Week in Denver October 20 - 26, 2017

What’s worth knowing this week in Denver October 20 – 26, 2017? New lobster joints, skiers wearing snowboard boots, and Colorado’s pumpkin beers. Plus a few more things to know…

Lobster rolls are coming to Union Station with newly opened Wewatta Point. And, lobsters can soon be found in Uptown too. Ian Kleinman’s Inventing Room returns on October 29. And Zeppelin Station just announced a Latin American street food addition to the upcoming food hall.

The Union Station Whole Foods will be opening soon with Tel Aviv Street Food and its first ever mac-and-cheese bar.

Boulder was just named the happiest city in the U.S. by National Geographic, which seems like it means something since those guys have been everywhere.

And, here’s one more reason to not move away from Colorado…we fight less with our partners. (The romantic kind, that is.)

Tom Hagerman, of Denver’s favorite band DeVotchKa, wants you to help fund his next project (which includes an 18-piece string orchestra).

This local children’s author is showing young kids how to tackle bullying with humor.

Amazon’s Treasure Truck is coming to Denver. Find out what that means.

Loveland becomes the second ski area to open for the season today. (If you you head up there, watch out for this llama.)

Donate your used clothes at Spruce, the men’s barber and clothing shop on Tennyson, this weekend (October 20-22) and get 10% off your order. Donations go to the Denver Rescue Mission.

The First Annual Children’s Book Fest is this Saturday at BookBar and features a line-up of visiting authors with readings, food, magic, snacks and more.

Trick or beer in RiNo next Sunday (October 29, 1-7pm) with a $20 ticket.

Grab your girlfriends for this Cocktails and Comedy Fundraiser (at Live at Jack’s Denver) this Monday benefitting Denver’s Athena Project, which empowers women and girls in the arts.

These pumpkin beers are Colorado’s answer to PSL. (If you’re feeling more tropical beach vacation than savory spice, try one of these Colorado coconut beers.)

This Colorado company invented a way for skiers to wear snowboard boots.

These Denver Zoo elephants stomping and eating pumpkins are beyond cute.

And, finally, watch your mail…Denver and other counties are sending voter ballots out this week.

What are you up to this weekend? We’ll be going pumpkin-picking and welcoming family into town. Some other options we’re mulling…first annual Children’s Book FestBug-a-Boo (Butterfly Pavilion), and Bloody Mary Festival. Plus, some things to do with the kiddos and more things to do in October.

Enjoy the weekend!
