The shortest month of the year, the most romantic month of the year, and the last few weeks before winter transitions into spring Whatever February calls to mind, we want to make sure that everyday is jam-packed with culture, food and drinks, and activities that’ll get you excited to finish that shift at work, meet up with friends, and get out into the city. Even if it’s a bit cold, we hope that won’t stop you from exploring every corner of Denver that you can. Here’s 82 things to do in Denver this February.
The popular Candlelight series back in Denver, and they’re doing some really amazing tributes to some of the culture’s most iconic musicians. You can enjoy an intimate evening at a stunning venue bathed in candlelight, like the historic Wings Over the Rockies museum or The Church Nightclub, listening to classics hits from Coldplay, Taylor Swift, and more. There’s also a few romantic specials planned, like the Valentine’s Day Special complete with aerial performers.
Lunar New Year 2022 is upon us and it just happens to be the Year of the Tiger. Rebirth, renewal, and luck are predicted to be on the horizon, and you can get a dose of good luck at one of these delicious Chinese restaurants.
Denver is known for its great and innovative chefs, so getting a taste of some special menus just in time for Valentine’s Day is a dream come true, right? Enjoy some three-course, four-course, and even a seven-course menu from some of the city’s greatest chefs and restaurants but book quickly as a lot of these places have been selling out.
The executive chef of Casa Bonita’s new menu is Dana Rodriguez, and to get a taste of what could possibly be coming to Casa Bonita, check out her new restaurant, Cantina Loca. Cantina Loca is doing everything from spicy, meaty queso fundido to carnitas and pulpo (oct0pus) tacos. Don’t leave without sipping on a mezcal-forward cocktail from Rodriguez’s very own Mezcal line.
For all you weirdos who aren’t into bougie, normie bars, you can be happy knowing that Denver has got quite the eclectic group of spots to experience something different. From Tim Burton-esque cocktail bars to hidden speakeasies, dive bars that showcase horror classics and upscale tiki getaways, there’s a little something for every quirky palate.
Looking for a romantic way to spend your money or your time? So were we. We decided to round up together just a few of our favorite date day/night things to do this February in Denver, from visiting a botanic garden to creating your own chocolate box.
Novo Ita is an all-ages, psychedelic, immersive art, botanic, audio, and visual experience presented by Spectra Art Space. With a team filled with talented artists, writers, actors, and technology teams (some who have been part of the Spectra team for months and some who have been featured in Meow Wolf) Spectra Art Space has created an exhibit that brings you into the natural world in whole new ways. Take on a quest to uncover how humans, technology, and nature intersect all the way until the end of February, so it’s a great idea for something to do this month.
In the mood for a romantic evening surrounded by fire pits, string lights, and plates of delicious food? We gathered some of the most romantic, cozy restaurants for you to enjoy. Some are upscale and others won’t break the bank, but they’re all great things to do in February.
Just because January is over doesn’t mean that we have to stop fueling our bodies. With plenty of healthy options to enjoy around the city, we thought we’d gather 10 of our favorite. Some are American, some are global, all are absolutely delicious, and there are perfect places to go this February.
Winter has greeted us all with a harsh hello this season which means it’s the time of year for warm bowls of soup, hot lattes, and rich, sweet mugs of cocoa. In honor of the chilliest season, we put together a sweet little roundup of some of the best hot chocolate you can get around Denver. Take a sip of these 5 hot cocoas and drift away into an indulgent, sweet chocolate-y haven.
With Colorado having so many other viable options–plus there being an alternative route to big resorts like Breckenridge and Vail-we thought we’d try to help you guys out with finding the best ski resorts that avoid the dreaded I-70 that are as close as we could find. Of course I-70 is a quicker route to most of these destinations so some of the times are a bit longer, but at least you won’t be stuck in traffic.
