If you’re anything like me, you love being informed about the major events going on in the city. In Denver, there is so much excitement going on around us. Whether it’s a new restaurant opening, a unique cocktail event, fundraiser, new art exhibit; you name it and this city has got it. Here’s a breakdown of some cool things that are happening in the great city of Denver in May.
With May comes warm weather and outside fun! Washington Park just underwent some scrutiny over the “Sunday-Fun-Day” events in the park. If you haven’t been to Wash Park on a Sunday, it is a massive party. We’re talking over a thousand people playing volleyball and having fun together. There was a moment where Wash Park almost lost its ability to have alcohol in the park. Luckily that specific law did not pass and Wash Park Sundays can subsequently continue.
Are you into music and concerts? May has some awesome shows coming your way. Cyndi Lauper and Cher will be at the Pepsi Center on Wednesday May 28th. Juan Gabriel will also be at the Pepsi Center on Friday, May 30th. Augustana will be at the Blue Bird on May 7th, while Charlie Daniels Band will be at Fiddler’s Green on May 24th, and finally, the Pretty Reckless will be at The Fillmore Auditorium on May 30th.
Thinking of something special to eat in May? Who isn’t? Check out Teriyaki Madness in University Hills which has just opened. This is a Las Vegas based casual chain. The place holds around 54 guests with a niche that’s mainly focused on teriyaki style foods. Argyll Whisky Bar is due to open on June 1st. I’m including it in this post because you’ll miss the grand opening if you wait for my June Blog to come around. This place is going to be incredible, and you should definitely be there. Ryan Conklin will be running the beer program, and if you’re an avid whisky fan, then the name says all you need to know.
Into the theatre? Carmen is in town from May 3rd to May 11th at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. The Tony Awards best musical of the year is in town from May 6th through to the 18th. This musical is called Once. It’s a story of an Irish musician and a Czech immigrant and their shared love of music. Once will be held at Buell Theatre in the Denver Performing Arts Complex.
If you haven’t figured it out quite yet; there’s plenty to do in Denver during the month of May. I didn’t even touch on the art exhibits or festivals. There’s something for everyone here, and that’s what makes Denver so great.
