The "C" in Colorado might as well stand for craft. Denver may be known for its breweries, but this night the Mile High City celebrates the craft distilleries. Sample signature spirits from Colorado distilleries like Dancing Pines, Spring 44, and Leopold Brothers. From farther away, take nips from California's Greenbar Collective, New Mexico's Sante Fe Spirits, and Wisconsin's Great Lakes Distillery. The evening is part of DSTILL, a weeklong conference devoted to small batch distilleries. Wed 6-10 p.m.

The stay includes games about the tropical forest and a tour of some of the zoo’s exhibits. Before tucking in for the night, test out some nocturnal vision simulations in a night vision goggle activity. Ages 6-12. Wed-Thu 6:30 p.m.-10 a.m.

 

An Evening with Michael Nesmith

Submitted by Jake Jensen on Tue, 02/19/2013 - 3:02pm

Since uttering that infamous “Hey, Hey, We’re the Monkees!” theme song nearly half a century ago, this one-time TV-boy-band member has built a storied career yielding 15 albums, the inaugural Grammy award for a music video, and a credit as a force behind the creation of MTV. Now embarking on his first solo tour of the United States in three decades, Michael Nesmith will draw from his expansive catalogue of country rock. Talk about a victory lap. Wed 7:30 p.m.
