Denver Restaurant Week

Today marks the first day of Denver Restaurant Week! Until March 1st, Denver (and surrounding areas) top restaurants will offer multi- course dinners at three different price points- $25, $35 or $45.

How to do Denver Restaurant Week right:

  1. Browse the menus. All participants are listed and restaurants are added to the list as they sign up, so be sure to keep going back for the latest info.
  2. Make reservations. Tables fill up fast during Denver Restaurant Week, so make your plans soon. Be flexible and try some earlier or later seatings, too. And be sure to cancel any reservations you don’t use!
  3. Dine early and often! With hundreds of Denver’s best restaurants participating, there’s never a better time to try a new spot or head back to your favorites.
  4. Splurge! Lots of restaurants offer affordable wines, add-ons and special desserts. At $25, $35 or $45 per person for dinner, you can afford to order some extras.
  5. Pay it forward. That fabulous meal you just had is also a great deal. Be sure to tip your server generously!

Freshen your home with new plants

Plants can be a great way to add interest to your home by bringing in color and texture. Not only do plants look nice (when well taken care of), but they also:

  • help to remove chemical toxins from the air
  • catch and digest mold spores
  • naturally humidify the air
