Bicycles, firefighters, and tacos...oh my! We’re officially in the last month of summer, which means festival season is coming to a close. But don’t freak out! Denverites still have time to participate in the Mile High City’s bar crawls, parties, and concerts galore.
Keep your phone handy for a strong Snapchat game, and fill your Facebook feed with good food, yummy drinks, and A LOT of bikes. And if we missed anything noteworthy, make sure to tell us; we will personally come down to take as many instaworthy photos as your heart desires (just ask Insta-queen Chelsea).
New year, new firefighters. The 2018 Firefighter Calendar benefits the Lifeline Puppy Rescue. Grab your friends and head to The Grizzly Rose for free drinks and MIX 100’s MC, Emily, as she introduces the lovely gentlemen who grace the pages of this year’s calendar.
On your mark. Get set. ROCK! Velorama is taking over the RiNo Art District with rockin’ music, beers from Colorado craft breweries, and of course, bikes. Jam out to Wilco, Death Cab for Cutie, and more as the Colorado Classic cyclists cross the finish line right at the festival. We’ll be ready with our phones for the perfect finish line Boomerang.
“Nacho” average Taco Tuesday. Cha-cha your way to the most delicious day of the year, featuring food from more than 40 Denver taquerias and Mexican restaurants. And with sponsors like Exotico Tequila, enjoy margaritas “jalapeño” mouth. Got a problem with our love of puns? Find us at Civic Center Park on the 20th, and we can “taco” ‘bout it.
Tour De Fat
The Tour de Fat is back with the dynamic sounds of Capital Cities. The Vaudeville experience brings together musicians, magicians, circus performers, and Denverites for an evening you’ll never forget to benefit Bike Denver and Denver Cruiser Rides, which both work to make us a more bike-friendly city.
Red Rocks Amphitheater is the place to see a concert in Colorado. Throw on your tie-dye, grab your old high school buddies, and enjoy an evening of jamming along to the tunes you’d blast in the car back in your ska-reggae days. And don’t forget to warm up your pipes so you can sing along to “Santeria” with headliner Sublime with Rome.
