Slow News Day? Would You Like a Muffin?

A space that couldn’t make it as a Starbucks is being transformed to a muffin shop. This is the space next to the entrance to the Regional Headquarters of the Environmental Protection Agency. Next to the Chase branch, close to pizza stuff and across from Union Station on the lower end of the 16th Street Mall. I don’t recall seeing “muffins” on the lists of items reported in polls of LoDo residents’ concerns, but here…

Just Like Rockefeller Plaza…Sort Of.

Light the lights! Tonight, the holiday lights throughout Downtown Denver come on for the season.

And, Now Showing on 14th Street…

From the South of Burgundy…To an Alley Near You!

As we all know, the third Thursday of every November is the official date for uncorking the annual edition of Beaujolais Nouveau. And, frankly, we usually skip that, filing it away with events like Cinco de Mayo that seem marketing driven and marketing driven alone for their existence. But, they are really trying…again…to make this worthwhile and worth the hype. That finally may be starting to translate into better wines. The Gamay grape grows best…

This Sunday Morning? Bottoms Up!

Just another one of the neighbors on national┬áTV. This Sunday morning’s CBS Sunday Morning will have a segment celebrating beer…at the Wynkoop Brewery in LoDo! According to this article at Westword today, filming was done yesterday, and the piece will air Sunday. Typically, a very enjoyable way to begin most Sunday mornings is by watching Charles Osgood deliver a sort of Sunday-paper-of-the-air every week. This week, that will be served up with a beer…Railyard Ale,…
