Hiya Denver, how’s the February snow feeling? Love it or hate it, this weekend will bring some more, so be sure to bundle and boot up before you go out.

On Friday, check out the First Friday Art Walk in the Santa Fe Arts district. Don’t feel like braving the cold but still in the mood for local art? Go to the Walnut Room on Saturday for local music at the Denver Emerging Artist Showcase.

Try some south-of-the-border sweets on Saturday. Shake up the usual beer-and-cookie pairing at Cervercería Colorado with pairings of mini conchas (Mexican pastries) and your favorite beers. Or satisfy your sweet tooth at the grand opening of Cultura Craft Chocolate. With hot chocolate, café de olla (traditional Mexican coffee), cooking and craft classes, there’s something new to try all day.

Snow get it, Denver!
