The Wooden Table Restaurant- Denver Italian Food at its Finest - 3 Course Meal for 2 $60

I might ruffle a few feathers saying this, but I think that The Wooden Table has some of the BEST Italian food in Denver. Technically Greenwood Village and totally worth the drive to the suburbs for this Restaurant. Just this past weekend, myself and two friends visited the Italian eatery for the first time. Everyone from the hostess, to our waiter, the front of house manager, to the food runner was absolutely fantastic. The waiter was knowledgeable about the menu and I took him up on his recommendation for the duck (which normally, I could take or leave) and I was not disappointed. The duck was roasted perfectly; lightly crispy on the outside, but still moist. It was served on a Butternut Squash Gratin and Pancetta Seared Brussels Sprouts. Quite frankly they are lucky I didn't lick the plate.

Arcade Fire at Pepsi Center 52% OFF!

I fell in love with Arcade Fire before I even knew who they were. I just remember this song being played at one of my best loved hang-outs and I could stop myself from dancing. This was close to 10 years ago. That song I later learned was, Rebellion (Lies) by Arcade Fire and to this days is still one of my favorites. In 10 years I have yet to see Arcade Fire Live, but finally in April looks like I will get a chance! April 23rd at Pepsi Center you too can see this Canadian Band at their finest; promoting the new 'Reflekor' Album. Better yet, Groupon has a deal for 52% off!!! Furthermore, I just learned the Kid Koala and tUNE-yARDs will also be touring with them!

Explore RiNo - Crisis Chocolate, Black Shirt Brewing Co, and ROLL- WIPEOUT! NEON BLACKLIGHT ROLLER SKATE PARTY 3/21/14

What To Do This Weekend 3/21 - Explore RiNo (more than art)

Crisis Chocolate Center

How about you start your weekend, by getting some chocolate therapy at Crisis Chocolate Center. You can get your fix either online 24/7 or stopping by their store. Since I am one who likes to get the inside scoop, I plan to stop by, not to mention the website mentions a free tasting! The only thing is that they are open M-F 9-5, so my plan is to swing by around 4ish on Friday (don't hate me retail employees). While the standard assortments, such as Triple Chocolate Truffle looks delish, the seasonal flavors (Cinni-Mint, Biscotti) look really tasty too! The Crisis Chocolate Center also features flavored nuts, espresso beans, and gift baskets for any crisis.

Black Shirt Brewing Co

Well, since I decided to start with desert first, it's now time to find a bite to eat and to enjoy a locally crafted beer from the Black Shirt Brewing Company. While, they don't have a kitchen, they have food trucks scheduled Wednesday - Saturday. (schedule Here). This brewery features custom made glasses in their tap room designed to enhance the flavor of their beer. 


I haven't laced up a pair of roller skates since probably grade school, HOWEVER coming from the generation of "lock-ins" and roller blades at the local roller rink (Roller Express anyone??), I secretly get real excited when The Quad City DJs, randomly plays on Pandora. Friday 3/21 I get to pull on some roller skates for the Neon Black Light Roller Skate Party at the Exdo Event Center. Even better, comp tickets are available at several Denver locations. Go to for a list of places that have them.

40% off Bite of The Rockies - $6 tickets at Livingsocial

Attention foodies and really anyone who likes food (hmmm everyone) - Come sample food from over 40 food vendors while listening to local music at the 1st Annual Bite of The Rockies. The Colorado Symphony will be featured on the main stage as well as cooking demonstrations throughout the day.

I am not 100% sure what to expect as it's their first bite (sorry bad pun, lol), but it sounds to me like the set up is somewhat close to how The Taste of Colorado is - where you purchase food tickets that you give to individual vendors. On the plus, this event will take place at the Denver Merchandise Mart and thus be indoors (not on scorching hot Labor Day). Anyway, Livingsocial is currently offering 2 admission tickets for $6; click link below for more details.

Saturday March 22 10am-8pm & Sunday March 23 10am -6pm
Denver Merchandise Mart
451 East 58th Avenue

40% off Bite of The Rockies - $6 for 2 tickets at Livingsocial
