Santa's Parade of Lights starts this weekend, but with all the crowds downtown, you might not get close enough to the Denver City and County Building to see what a mishmash has been installed on the steps -- the better to balance the nativity scene and help the city avoid a pesky lawsuit. Yes, the g ... More >>
How will Denver's ban of all outdoor advertising for medical marijuana businesses -- approved last night in a quick, unanimous vote by Denver City council members -- be enforced?

Just as traditional as its tackiness is the duration of the annual holiday display at the Denver City and County Building: Mary, Joseph, the Baby Jesus and that weird Santa Helper Hoedown always stick around through the Stock Show, to stun and amaze every visitor to town. But not this year.
