Summer has just begun!
We’ve got another monthly round up coming your way with some really exciting events, new restaurants, and beautiful artwork to see. From Denver’s first cannabis church to a brand new Mexican gourmet cantina, to a classic and aerial performance of pop classics we think you’ll love. Here are 62 super fun ways to spend the month here in Denver that we think you’ll enjoy!
The Mile High Concert series combines local and national artists and food trucks at a lovely out door venue, the Mile High Station. Tickets are priced at $35 and come with a Coors Light Draft Beer or a glass of wine and a table reservation. The event is even giving away a portion of ticket sales to a different non-profit every week, so you’re giving to the local community with every purchase. What’s not to love?
If you consider yourself an adventurous eater, we’ve got four premium dining experiences made for you and yours. This season, Fever and Wegame have cooked up a quartet of culinary experiences that include a chauffeured gastronomic journey to a mystery restaurant, a personal chef-crafted dinner in your own home, and more!
This summer, the popular candlelight concerts will be putting a classical spin on some of your favorite 2000s and 90s pop songs. What’s even more magical about this event are the aerial artists that will be performing dances with silks, hoops, and rings, all while in the air, to some of the best classic pop songs. You won’t want to miss this event.
Center Denver has finally launched their upcoming theater lineup for Summer 2021 through Winter 2022, and we couldn’t be more excited. Check out a Denver-local show like Mixed Taste, with poetry readings and eclectic facts and The Bright Lights of Denver, an interactive crime show with QR codes guests can search for across the city. And even better, The Lion King and Hamilton will be showing up as well.
We’re big on ice cream here in Denver. Whether they be homages to vintage carnival towns or modern retellings of classic flavors, there’s a little something for the whole family to enjoy. We’re sure we don’t have to convince you too hard (who doesn’t love ice cream) so go and check them out!
Tí Cafe just opened its doors on June 19th. The coffee shop, owned by three sisters, Sashaline, Shominic, an Shasitie Nguyen, will serve as a representation of close-knit family values and Vietnamese culture right here in Denver. Sashaline comes from a bartending background at one of our favorite bars, the Welton Room, but above all, the sisters wanted to create a space that honors community, and what better way to do that than with coffee?
Tracks, Denver’s premier LGBTQ+ has commissioned an amazing mural of Denver-native and Ru Paul Drag Queen winner, Yyvie Oddly, and you can see it in all its glory! We’re not sure, but we think it might be there only for a limited amount of time, so make sure to go check it out before it’s gone.
One of Denver Union Station’s newest venues is this amazing gourmet cantina that specializes in artisan Mexican spirits (especially Mezcal) and 6 types of delicious nachos to choose from. All from within an amazingly swank and glowy speakeasy-esque restaurant.
In Golden, Colorado, there’s a lovely little trail leading to the Enchanted Forest Trail prefect for bikers and hikers alike. Apex Trail to Enchanted Forest Trail Loop is a 5.6 heavily trafficked that features a lovely river and is best used from March until November, so you have plenty of time to go wander this summer.
Have you ever heard of “Elevationism?” If you haven’t, no worries, as its quite a new spiritual movement that cropped up here in Denver in 2017. This spiritual movement is unlike other typically recognized religions. Instead, this one is dedicated to the spiritual benefits of cannabis. And just to be clear, this isn’t just a made up name. No, it’s actually the official religion of the International Church of Cannabis here in Denver, with over 1,200 members to its congregation. You may not have realized that the Elevationists congregate here on 400 S. Logan Street because of the church’s unassuming front, but there’s a lot more going on inside than you may realize. We highly recommend checking it out.

What if we said you could visit Spain for a fraction of the price? While international travel is still not quite what it used to be, that’s alright. For now, you can visit Barcelona Wine Bar and indulge yourself in tapas and glasses of cold, crisp wine straight from Catalunya. The menu is incredibly extensive. First, and this is important, you choose the type of wine you’d like–and from where. Do you like reds and want to try one from Spain? Then you may want to try a glass of rioja in either modern or traditional. But BCN Wine Bar also has delicious wines straight from France, Italy, and Portugal as well. Check it out, and we hope you enjoy!
The RiNo neighborhood is one of our favorites, and so we decided to do a nifty guide highlighting all of the amazing breweries there (and you’ll want to go to each one, especially because a lot of the buildings are covered with stunning murals). Here’s just a few from the list.
