    Fest Up, Denver!

    Dog Days of Summer? Hardly. This is the time of year when everything (and, we’re hoping that includes business) starts to ramp up again in Downtown Denver. Can we rest after Labor Day? Maybe. Take Saturday, the 28th for example. Some practice fests ringing Downtown. Across Commons Park, across the river, in that nice plaza area that is technically 16th Street, you will find the CommFest. That’s short for Community Festival, long with music, food, beer and shade, from 2 until 10. Also, on Saturday, the SunStock 2010 5th Annual “Unknownfest”, a celebration of music with continuous groups from noon until 10 p.m. at Skyline Park. This festival is rated the…

    Cube Up, Denver!

    We could talk about all kinds of new structures going up Downtown along the 16th Street Mall. Places to buy. Places to eat. The recent opening of Crepes Express, serving…well, Crepes, at 16th and Curtis. Or, the expansion of offerings at Brava!Pizzeria to include beer and wine on Lanny’s Patio at 16th and Arapahoe, right across from Biker Jim’s. (By the way, Biker Jim just moved his second location out of Downtown over to the Auraria campus). Or, we could spend some time discussing the meaningfulness of all the new food trucks in town. Biscuits, cupcakes, lobster rolls. All on wheels. You don’t actually need caterers any more. Just call…

But right there you can click on one of the early campaign commercials and, if you have not seen it, enjoy it. Better than the motor scooter!

    No Garage? No Problem. Have a Garage Sale!

    People living in Downtown spaces have too much stuff, too. So, here again is that chance to move some of it over to people who really want more stuff. A Garage Sale, but unlike any other. Saturday, August 28, rain or shine, brings on another Lower Downtown No Garage Garage Sale! From 8 in the morning until 1 in the afternoon, this is a great way to spend your time on the street…between 15th Street and Cherry Creek on Wynkoop. Organized by the Lower Downtown Neighborhood Association (LoDoNA), participants display and hopefully unload furniture, motorcycles, books, jewelry and stuff you don’t see at suburban garage sales. If you think about it, people…
