Downtowners beware: The temptation for afternoon indulgence just became dangerously easy to satisfy. Union Station’s resident sweet spot, the Milkbox Ice Creamery, scoops a rotating selection of Little Man Ice Cream’s flavors, including the ever-popular milk stout chip, honey almond, and dulce de leche. And then there’s the thick salted Oreo milkshake (a perfect decision for those struggling to choose between salty and sweet). The oversize straw ensures no cookie shard will go uneaten. The proximity of this treat to downtown (and the 5280 office in particular) might pose a problem, however. We used to earn our calories by scrambling over the pedestrian bridges to Little Man in LoHi—now we’ll have to add a few extra miles to our workouts. 1701 Wynkoop St., 720-460-3707, www.milkboxicecream.com
