You could easily make the argument that one of the most significant cultural centers of Downtown Denver is located at the corner of 18th and Wynkoop. Unlike other “cultural centers” in Denver, you won’t find a 10-story artificial ski slope here. You won’t wade through a list of rock star architects who designed the place. And, the lights won’t flash telling you it’s time to find your seat.
But, there is always something going on there. Besides being a well-used community gathering spot, the Wynkoop busies itself with events and programs to appeal to everyone. Denver by the Slice received their newsletter today, and we thought to share just the first four days of February with you. Three events. All different, but typical of the activity level in any month.
On Tuesday, February 1 at 6 p.m., Scott Morrissey, Deputy Director of Green Point Denver will present in the S2 Sustainability Series. He’ll discuss successful programs like the B-Cycle bike sharing, Denver’s Mile-Hi Million Tree Planting Initiative, and various neighborhood energy outreach programs taking place.
Just two days later, the Wynkoop will play host to a preview of Swallow Hill’s Ukulele Fest (February 4-5) with their own Heavy Metal Ukulele Shred, 7:30-9:30 on the 3rd.
And, then on Friday the 4th, the Wynkoop taps a special seasonal offering, its own ode to love and romance (that’s culture, also, I think) called “The Coupler.” A railroad term, for sure, but described by the brewery thusly:
“Our special Valentine’s beer is a luscious imperial stout made with mountains of malts, hot peppers and cocoa nibs, then aged in a Stranahan’s whiskey barrel. Brand new and big & bold, sure to stoke the fires of love and friendship.”
