Things to Do

Over the Weekend: A whirlwind First Friday tour to kick off Denver Arts Week

No one in their right mind would normally try to hit four art walks all in one night, but last Friday wasn't any old First Friday, it was Denver Arts Week's Know Your Arts First Friday and, courtesy of Visit Denver flak Rich Grant, I got to do it in style on a chartered bus, which left from the Golden Triangle's Walker Fine Art gallery early in the evening for a whirlwind tour of some of the city's First Friday hot spots.
