‘Tis the Season…Oxford Decorates Living Room Today!

The Victorian lobby of the Oxford Hotel in Lower Downtown is taking on a new look…today! Decorations are going up for the holidays, and this year the theme looks bright and white.

At the center of the visual feast is a new carousel, working and moving, built and designed by hotel engineer Mike Michna, last spotted high atop a ladder fiddling with the parts. He should be proud. And, as always, the result will be a treat when the hanging is finished, and the lights go on. Thanks to the Oxford for their annual…even if a little early…holiday decor. And, of course, everyone is invited in to see it.

And, Denver by the Slice wishes a speedy recovery to Oxford Director of Sales, Amy Stansbery. We’ll look forward to walking around LoDo with you soon!

Meanwhile, just out the door, the Grand Illumination of Downtown will light up next Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. Starting at Union Station, lights will go on beginning at 6:30 throughout the 16th Street Mall, the Civic Center and all over Skyline Park. It will snow.

And, sometime soon, it appears that Charlie Palmer’s District Meats restaurant will be opening. Peeking in, more white than before, and the wine bottle racks are already stocked on every pillar. That’s in the old Il Fornaio space, as we prefer to refer to it, on Wazee Street.

Light up. Eat up.
