August 16, 2019

So what kids are back in school, summer isn't over yet! There's still a lot to do in the Mile High City!


Stranahans Cocktail Pairing

First, 25 bucks for ANY pairing at Stranahans is a steal. Do you even need the details? We'll give a few anyway. A Nott, the master of paring plates, will be serving up three dishes, complete with three cocktail samplers. There are also three tasting times. Book soon, because spots will fill up!

More info and reservations here.

The Bed Cinema

Who doesn't love watching movies in bed, outside? Wait, what? Yep! The Bed Cinema is in Denver for 4 days and gives you a chance to watch a movie under the stars, all from the comfort of a bed! Things are getting cozy at Runway 35 this weekend.

Roll-Your-Own Sushi

The perfect roll of sushi is hard to master, but Sushirama in the Tech Center is gonna help you try. 30 bucks will get you a guided sushi class (yes you can eat what you make) with the option to add some sake in. That oughta make a super technical skill easier....
