Photos: The new 1UP Colfax shows off the joint with Heebonism 2013

While their Christian brethren gathered in churches and around the tree with family and friends on Christmas Eve, Denver's young professional Jewish community came out to party at Heebonism 2013, which also served as the first big event to show off the newly renovated and renamed 1UP Colfax. Photographer Brandon Marshall was there to document the shmoozing and gaming, with a surprise appearance by the Super Mario Bros.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
