With all due respect for the enjoyment of a beer on a fine afternoon sitting on the deck at the Wynkoop Brewery…

Here’s where we have settled for Friday afternoons. This plaza is a highly activated and energetic public space. In the center is a large fountain, big shade trees, room for kids to play, through traffic streets and the tram line. The whole square is formed by Italianate uniform-height buildings, all with arcades, and cafes flowing into the square. The beer is good. The people watching is terrific. And, at the opposite corner of the square,…

Bananas Peel Off at 11! Gorillas Expected to Follow!

Street Watch… Over 1000 hairy apes will take over Wynkoop Street Saturday morning. Starting at the Wynkoop Brewery, the giant band will dash down Wynkoop, crossing Manny’s Bridge over Cherry Creek and descend to the bike path below. A bit later, they’ll return to Wynkoop via 15th Street, make a hard left in front of MeatTV at Fogo, and head for the beer. Remember, these are apes. Apes for a good cause, but apes, nonetheless.…

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…
