What You Missed Around Denver While You Were Away Welcome back to the Mile High City! Here’s a quick recap of what you might have missed while jet-setting… Denver, Colorado April 1 – April 7, 2016 [/su_spoiler]
Repainting Iconic Blue Horse at DIA?
Friday, April 1st, was April Fool’s Day and some locals fell for a rouse by DIA. They posted online asking for the public’s opinion on a new paint color for the famous blue horse. Personally, we would have loved for it to change to the Snow Cone Green Mustang. This story made headlines and was even published on Mashable.
Lucky’s Market, the next local Whole Foods?
Kroger recently announced that it has invested in Lucky’s Market, a Colorado-based specialty grocery chain focused on natural, organic and locally grown products. We love to support local and sustainable companies and are looking forward to their expansion. Learn more in the Denver Business Journal article.
New Denver Curfew
April 1st marked the first day of the Denver curfew enforcement. Denver’s Curfew Ordinance prohibits youth from being in a public place or on public property from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m., Sunday through Thursday. On Friday and Saturday those hours are 12 a.m. to 5 a.m. Learn more about this new law and some of the exceptions to the rule here.
Okay, so this isn’t local but is still worth mentioning, especially given all the avid golfers in Colorado. The 80th Masters Tournament held at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia starts Thursday, April 7th and wraps up on Sunday, April 10th. See how the top golfers rank on CBS sports here.
