Denver Weekend Rundown: Nov. 22-24
Looking for things to do in Denver this weekend? The RedPeak staff has your back. Here’s a list of our top picks for Nov. 22-24.
Art by Architects You could say an architect’s art is the buildings they design, but this show and sale offers a glimpse at other works —drawings, paintings and sculptures— created by 20 AIA Colorado architects. And it’s all for a good cause. Proceeds will go toward the Fellows’ Scholarship Fund to fund an annual recruiting scholarship for an incoming graduate student at the University of Colorado Denver’s College of Architecture and Planning.
Mustache Dache For this 5K, channel your inner Mario or Luigi and sport some facial hair above that upper lip. No mustache? No problem. Take advantage of on-site face painters! Timed to coincide with Movemeber, this race aims to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues, such as prostate and testicular cancer, and mental health challenges.
Living West The History Colorado Center’s new interactive exhibit exploring the dynamics between the people of Colorado and the state’s extraordinary environment makes its debut tonight. Hear behind-the scenes stories from experts who helped create the exhibit, watch a traditional dance performance, and learn how yucca and pottery were made at Mesa Verde.
Holiday Pie Class Mmm. Nothing says “the holidays” like a tasty pie. Wouldn’t it be nice to impress your friends and family with a homemade dessert? Allow Lou’s Food Bar Chef Frank Bonanno to show you the ropes in this afternoon class, where he’ll demo classic and modern pies. Participants get instruction, light refreshments, and recipes to take home. Be sure to call Lou’s to make a reservation for the class!
Broken Shovels Farm Thanksgiving Market Stock up on fare for the holiday season at this family-run goat farm not far from Downtown Denver. Local producers will sell a variety of foods, including non-GMO fed and organic cheese, turkeys, meat, eggs, desserts, and vegetables sides. The farm’s milkers and baby goats will also be in attendance. (If you like what you find, mark your calendar for the farm’s Christmas market next month.)
