What’s worth knowing this week in Denver September 22 – 28, 2017? Fall weather activities and Denver businesses you thought you bid farewell make a comeback. Plus, how to enjoy the Great American Beer Festival even without a ticket.

Local news is saying fall will officially be ushered in this weekend with cooler weather, and everyone has fleece-weather activities on their minds: here’s where to see fall colors this weekend, where to find great fall hikes in Colorado, (and the best near-Denver fall hikes), 5 Colorado beers for fall weather, and the best fall wine recommendations from Colorado’s resident expert.

Remember the Spicy Pickle? It’s backDenver’s tallest open-air rooftop bar opened last week. The Bindery, a market/bakery/fine dining, opens in LoDo in less than a month.

Denver’s beloved “Cookie Lady,” Debbie Kuehn, passed away this summer. If you never had the opportunity to sample her incredible cookies, you’re about to get a second chance as her niece will re-open Santa Fe Cookie Co. (and the honor system cookie sales) as a tribute to her aunt beginning October 2.

And, over the next 3 months Denver will be gaining these 35+ restaurants, breweries and distilleries.

My 5-year-old keeps reminding me that Halloween is closer than I think. (For his part, he has narrowed his costume choices down to four categories.) Here are the best bets for pumpkin patches in and around Denver.

This Arvada brewery is harvesting ingredients from the Denver Botanic Gardens to create a “nature-based beer.” And why beer made from recycled waste water could be a good thing.

Lafayette is considering barring restaurants from putting sugary drinks on kids’ menus.

Denver’s favorite dive bar, Campus Lounge, is almost set to re-open.

Stem Ciders is hosting  a pop-up brunch with The Real Dill and The Post next weekend.

And here are the companies to watch for at the annual Denver Start-Up Week, which kicks off on September 25.
