Denver Restaurant Week

You can take advantage of this daily or once during the two weeks. It gives you an opportunity to check out the food in the metro area’s favorite food spots. This event occurs twice a year for double the enjoyment.
Byers-Evans House Museum
The Byers-Evans House Museum is showcasing an art display titled ‘Flower Face’ this February. This show features art by a Denver resident utilizing still photography shots. Each photograph is a picture of a model’s face that the artist carefully glued flower arrangements on. The show opens at 10AM every day and is free for the public to attend. While there, you can view the house itself that is a piece of Denver’s history. It has been restored back to the early 1900’s and features beautiful architectural and design details.
Get some exercise and take in the sights on the Bikalope Tour. Tour guides spend two and a half hours with you as you cycle the city to take in the history, atmosphere, and views. You may ride one of their bikes or save a few dollars by bringing your own. Either way, a helmet is required. The tour is appropriate for all ages and abilities because it is focused on the city’s art and not the speed of your bike.
