    Hi-Fi Listening, Safe-ish Roller Coasters, and Hard Core Tacos

    August 15, 2023 - Back to school time is making us think about new sneakers and catching classic end-of-summer events. We’ve got bao and beer boogies, film happenings, a 21+ amusement park party, and a passive aggressive stand-off with Natural Grocers. The cherry on top is the 411 on Denver’s best listening room.
    This week’s feature: taco spots. We’re a city that’s uniquely blessed with authentic Mexican food so we could never call just one “the best” but we’re shouting out a few favs that we can’t stop thinking about.
