Our group of four recently purchased tickets to see "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" at the Arvada Center. We were completely happy with the performance! The sets were amazing, the music was terrific, and the performers were truly outstanding! Bravo to each and every one of them! There is plenty of free parking available. Wine is sold in the lobby for $6.00/glass.

We really enjoyed the tour and the tastings! Just not come on an empty stomach or you may get a little loopy! Really a great place to bring a date. We thought the bar was well priced for their flights of whiskey. Staff really makes it a memorial experience!

Joyride Brewing Company

Reviewed By TravelRaven - Denver, Colorado

One of the very best tap rooms in Colorado. The beer is exceptional and they manage to keep to that standard across an impressive array of styles, from porter to fruit beers to pale ales. The beertenders are helpful and friendly; the tap room itself has a warm, fun vibe. They have event nights and food trucks (and you can bring food in), plus a sidewalk-facing seating area so you can look out at Sloan Lake and the hubbub of Edgewater. Bonus, this city allows dogs in tap rooms, so you can hang out with your best friend (and everyone else's) while you drink great beer. If you don't have time to hang out, their beer is very worthy of taking home in a growler, too.

Clancy's Irish Pub

Reviewed By Janet F - Highlands Ranch, Colorado

Went here with some friends and loved it. It is a bar/pub, with lots of character. Food was really good and there was LOTS of it. I took half of my club sandwich and home made fries home and enjoyed it the next day. It has a cozy feel,with several smallish rooms that help keep the clatter down. It also has a nice, big patio out front.

I had a great time and was surprised at the age of the instructor. My friends purchased the Lamborghini drive for me and while there was an upsell for a longer drive, it was a very fun experience. I just wish it would have lasted longer! I would definitely consider doing it again!

Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art

Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art has relocated to a new golden building in Denver’s Golden Triangle Creative District. The museum’s new building offers visitors an enhanced experience with more display space while staying true to the salon style and intimate atmosphere for which the Kirkland is known. The museum’s three collections are: • International Decorative Art—A celebrated collection including notable examples of every major design period from Arts & Crafts to Postmodern. • Colorado & Regional Art—The largest repository of art showcasing the state and region’s talent, concentrating on the 1840s through the 1990s with about 7,000 works more than 700 artists. • Vance Kirkland Retrospective—Kirkland (1904–1981) is generally considered Colorado’s most distinguished modern painter. About 550 paintings and about 600 drawings and prints are held in his estate collection. Note: Due to the fragile nature of the collections children must be 13 or older to be admitted.

Silver Vines Winery

Reviewed By Diane N - Colorado Springs, Colorado

We stopped by the Silver Vines Winery for a quick look around. The lady at the counter was so friendly and peppy. She told us all about the wines, where they came from, what grapes were used and anything else we wanted to know. I walked out with a Cabernet Sauvignon and can't wait to partake. This would be an awesome place for a girls night out, and just might have to do that soon.

Coors Field

A modern stadium with an old-fashioned feel, this is one of the National League's first new parks built exclusively for baseball since 1962.

Reviewed By Jake V - Denver, Colorado

Newer construction allows for people to flow freely. You can still get good tickets cheaper than places like Yankees stadium or Wrigley field. Beer is predictably expensive and the food is predictably greasy. HOWEVER!!!!! You can bring some of your own and buy them out front. That’s a nice treat in my opinion
