Ride RiNo in style on a Denver Arts Week VIP Limo Tour

Denver Arts week is just around the corner, with special events all over town for folks of all ages and cultural interests. It also heralds one of the biggest First Fridays of the year citywide on November 5, including in RiNo, where the galleries and artist studios will be pouring it on for the public. But if you want to do RiNo like proper glitterati, there are still some spots left for the RiNo VIP Limo Tour, featuring a ride around the district for three hours in a beautiful 1936 Rolls Royce touring sedan. And if the weather's nice enough, you might even get to do it with the top down.

"I'm not even a limo person, but they're really cool," Says RiNo's Jill Hadley Hooper of the two creamy vintage rides available for rental, which are owned by the RiNo-based limo business the Ambassador's Rolls. "And we're hoping to have something special for the people on the tour at each of seven stops." The trip will also include a gas-up on wine and cocktails at the RiNo eatery Fuel.

If all goes well, she adds, it could be the start of a RiNo tradition. "This is the maiden voyage of the Rolls tour. If we get a good response, it might be something we could do a couple times a year."

The RiNo Limo Tour costs a Denver-licious $52.80 per pair (you don't have to be a couple to be a pair) and starts at 7 p.m. at 36th and Chestnut streets. Make reservations through Paypal at the River North Art District's website.
