The Women’s March on Denver is expected to attract 40,000 participants at Civic Center Park tomorrow. It’s not quite the 150,000 that attended the 2008 Obama rally in Civic Center Park (pictured above), but it’s a good start.

What’s worth knowing this week in Denver January 20-26, 2017? Don’t drive yourself to tomorrow’s Women’s March on Denver and more event details. Plus, Mavis the Magical BookBar Bookmobile and where to get a fried chicken banh mi.

It’s Inauguration Day, and I find it hard to think about much else. Though that’s certainly not for a lack of local happenings. It seems everyone I know is talking about the Women’s March on Denver tomorrow. The Denver Post is predicting a gathering of 40,000 (and not just women!) and advising all to find other ways to get there besides driving. RTD is adding extra routes as well as additional free MallRide shuttles. Check out the Denver Post Women’s March on Denver guide for more details. And, if you’re looking for a little background, 5280 Magazine has the scoop on how the Denver march came to be.

Here are a few more Denver tidbits worth knowing this week…

Northwest Denver’s BookBar is going mobile with the recent purchase of the Mavis the Magical BookBar Bookmobile.
