FRIDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2021

Happy Friday!

Just a note: City Cast Denver is taking Monday off to honor Indigenous Peoples’ Day, so you will not be seeing my name in your inbox that morning nor a fresh CCD episode in your podcast feed.

Enjoy a cool-ish weekend ⛅ and see you Tuesday! 👋

🔎 SOMETHING TO KEEP AN EYE ON

News we’re watching going into the weekend

👻 SOMETHING HALLOWEEN-Y

Murder at the Brown Palace
You know what October — aka the spookiest month of the year — is perfect for? Solving a spooky 1920s murder mystery. Unleash your inner super sleuth and hunt down clues to solve the Murder at the Brown Palace. This interactive murder mystery dinner party includes a three-course meal, cash bar, and an authentic 1920s atmosphere courtesy of Adams Mystery Playhouse. Now, has anyone seen my elbow-length satin gloves and extra long cigarette holder?

🎉 SOMETHING TO CELEBRATE

Indigenous Peoples’ Day
Monday is Indigenous Peoples’ Day. You can honor the occasion all weekend long at Boulder’s Inaugural Creative Nations Indigenous Arts Market, where you can learn more about Native American cultures and traditions through live performances, panel discussions, and Indigenous artisan booths. The event is hosted by Boulder’s Creative Nations Center and Collective, a nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering opportunities for Indigenous artists all year long. 

🎸 SOMETHING TO JAM OUT TO

Larimer After Dark
Fall may be on its way in, but concert season continues to heat up. Larimer Square will host local DJs, bands, and artists on its historic block every Friday and Saturday evening in October, and you’re invited. Dance in streets to Wes Watkins, Quiet Warlock, DJ Bella Scratch, and more at this free, all-ages concert series. For more information on who’s playing and when, visit Larimer Square's website.

🎙️ SOMETHING TO TRY YOUR HAND AT

BIPOC Podcast Weekend Workshop
Applications are open now to attend The BIPOC Audio Story Slingshot, a weekend-long course on audio media production for people of BIPOC communities taking place next month. The workshop will be hosted by local podcast pros Ann Marie Awad (who you might recognize from her appearances on City Cast Denver), Rebecca Mendoza Nunziato, and Jeanette Harris-Courts. See if you’re eligible to apply here

🎥 SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO

Denver Film Fest
Next month, Denver Film is hosting its 44th annual Denver Film Fest. Screenings will be virtual and in-person, so you get the option of dressing up and going out for a red carpet viewing OR keeping those sweatpants on and popping your own popcorn. Ticket packs are on sale now starting at $75 for non-members. You can check out prices and the entire movie lineup here.

📰 SOMETHING TO DISCUSS WITH YOUR FRIENDS

A Newspaper’s Worst Nightmare, Mountain Town Faves, and… Chowdermeister?
It’s the weekly Friday Chat, featuring Producer Xandra McMahon, Host Bree Davies, and me, Peyton Garcia! We’re diving into a local journalism scandal, naming all the mountain towns that are better than Aspen, and pondering the demise of Chowdermeister, the chowder-jäger food festival that almost was.
