What’s worth knowing this week in Denver September 15 – 21, 2017? Steamboat’s has a brand new mountain roller coaster, Denver’s sports venues introduced breastfeeding suites, and Amazon may be coming to Denver. Plus, a few more things to know…

Who in Denver hasn’t spent time hanging out at Union Station, eating, drinking, or just people-watching? It’s one of my favorite places to take visiting guests, and I’m sure I’m not the only one. But, I’m always a little wistful as I pass the ticket window, wishing I was hopping on a departing train to settle in for a few hours of passing scenery. I’ve loved train travel ever since I was a kid, and I’ve been looking for an excuse to take my own kids on a little trip. The 5-year-old will be thrilled.. But the 2-year-old is a wild card in more ways than one, so I’ve been hesitant. But I’m feeling newly inspired by 5280’s guide to Colorado’s best fall train rides!

Here are a few more things Denver is buzzing about this week…

Wally’s Wisconsin Tavern opened in LoDo last week. (And, yes, cheese curds are on the menu.) The team behind Boulder’s award-winning Frasca opened Tavernetta in Union Station this week. La Loma fans will be happy to know its successor (sorta) Sierra Restaurant is planning an October debut. Idaho Springs’s Smokin Yard’s BBQ will soon be landing on Santa Fe. And Mehak India’s Aroma, a fine dining restaurant, is slated to open in Cherry Creek this fall.

These 30 Denver chefs will be collaborating for 5 Colorado-themed dinners during Harvest Week in October. Tickets are on sale now and benefit EatDenver and GrowHaus.

Yay for supporting Denver’s breastfeeding mamas! New nursing suites are being installed at Coors Field and Mile High.

You know we all love to peek…inside other people’s homes, that is. This weekend you get the chance to tour the historic, and often quirky, homes of Baker.

Is Amazon coming to Denver? It should be, says the New York Times.

Steamboat Springs just opened a mountain roller coaster, apparently the longest one in North America.

Have you planned out your strategy for next week’s Denver Beer Fest yet?

Buh-bye, Denver boot; hello Barnacle?

Yoga in the park gets notched up a level in Stapleton this weekend at the StapletOM Yoga Festival.

The Fritzler Farm maze displays gratitude to local farmers this year.

Beetlejuice, Ghostbusters, The Shining…this drive-in pop-up movie theater might be worth the drive to Minturn.

Supporting local musicians and connecting Denver locals to their music? Just one more reason the Denver Public Library is such an amazingly cool resource. 

What are you up to this weekend? Here are some options you won’t want to overlook…CherryArts Festival at Stanley, Downtown Boulder Fall Fest, and Blue Moon After Party on the Bridge. Plus, more September fun.

Enjoy the weekend!
