It’s that time of year when your sweet tooth starts to gnaw away at you as Halloween creeps closer. So go visit the CandyCrawl at Northfield or the chocolate truffle workshop and just give in already.

K.Flay, Tyler Farr, and X Ambassadors all make it into Denver this weekend so you can groove your weekend away at one of the many shows happening around town.

As the season changes, so should your wardrobe! Check out the vintage clothing market and others this weekend to find something new to wrap yourself up in.

This weekend the Colorado Avalanche will face off against the Arizona Coyotes along and the Denver Broncos play the Tennessee Titans, so there’s also that. Plus all of this:
