Thanks for another lovely week, Denver. Here’s a taste of our experience through the last seven days.
OK, let’s work backwards. Yesterday we went deep into the state’s past, circa 1935 and the American Dust Bowl Era. A new tool by Yale University let us scope Colorado photography by the iconic Farm Security Agency during that time.
There’s no story for this photo of the parking lot, I just enjoy the pattern:
I also have super enjoyed the food photography coming out of 5280 Magazine, like this scrumptious snap by Aaron Colussi.
Sometimes, you’re just in the mood to splurge. If you feel a fancified night out coming on, make sure it’s one worthwhile by clicking the link in our bio for Denver’s best places for a nice dinner. ?: @aaroncolussi #nightout #whitetablecloth #Edge #EdgeRestaurant #5280eats #5280sweets #5280drinks #WhereToEatNow #WhereToEatNow2017 #Denver #WhereToEatInDenver #WhereToEatNowDenver #2017 #bucketlist #bucketlisteats #Colorado #yum #foodie #5280 #5280magazine #foodscene #Denverdining #dinner #dessert #treatyourself #treatyoself #splurge
This week Brazilian artist Alexandre Orion’s mural was vindicated after it was vandalized last month. Orion had to be flown in to complete the four-day restoration.
Erica was present for a very long hearing on a bipartisan effort to bring an infrastructure tax hike to voters this year.
The Denver Post’s Helen Richardson caught some sweet tricks on top of the Millennium Bridge.
Aaron James does a trick on his skateboard while riding across the Millennium Bridge near downtown Denver March 21, 2017. According to a recent study from online real estate data tracker Zillow, families pay on average $3,635 more a year to live in the communities surrounding Denver than do residents of the city itself. That bucks the national trend in which city dwellers pay a sizable premium — on average $9,000 annually — over their suburban counterparts, the report concluded. Zillow used three factors to compare the costs of urban and suburban areas: mortgage payments, property taxes and child care expenses. It calculated that a suburbanite pays $66,059 a year to meet all three bills, while a Denver resident lays out $62,424 for the same. (Photo by Helen H.

And Ashley and I learned to make pork green chile from a true master.
Adrian went digging into the city’s effort to continue development without causing community displacement…
…as well as the closing of a long-standing hair cuttery on Santa Fe.
