Swingers in Centennial, Nasty Politics, and Our Valentine’s Day Recs
It’s Friday and we’re digging deep into all the local stories that mattered this week. First, the mayor’s race isn’t the only big decision facing Denver voters this April. We’ll be picking new City Council members too, and those races are starting to take shape — and in one case, getting pretty nasty. With host Bree Davies out of town, producers Erin O’Toole and Paul Karolyi are talking politics and swapping Valentine’s Day recs with CPR senior host and hopeless romantic Nathan Heffel.
Our picks for your Valentine’s Day:
- Donate blood
- Valentine’s Day Heart-Shaped Pizza Class at Joy Hill
- B&GC Speakeasy
- The Cooper Lounge at Union Station
And, the weekend events Adrian brought for our consideration:
- “Titanic” 25th Anniversary
- Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo at History Colorado
- Monster Jam
- Superb Owl All-You-Can-Eat Buffet
