Denver in 5 minutes: What you need to know today, Aug. 7

Good morning, Sunday people. Here’s what we’re thinking about, reading and doing today in Denver.

What to do today:

It’s the last day of Denver Days, which puts on fun stuff all over the city. Today’s events include August Fest 2016 in Park Hill from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. The party’s at 3334 Holly St.

We’ve also got drunken Shakespeare tonight at Thump Coffee Capitol Hill, 7 p.m.

Crime and justice:

We’ve heard a lot of talk this summer about “urban travelers.” This week, we took a deeper look at who exactly these young people are, and why they leave home. Meanwhile, the Denver Police Department will study the potential for racial bias by officers.

Politics:

Colorado has significantly fewer active Republican voters now than it did in 2012. That’s probably not good for Donald Trump. (DP)

Separately, the Post asks whether Republicans are “writing off” their Senate candidate, Darryl Glenn. (DP)

Food:

Torchy’s Tacos opens tomorrow in Greenwood Village, with free tacos and drinks to boot. I hope you like lines.

Sports:

I’m telling you, it’s time to get on the Rockies bandwagon. (They won again last night.)
