Urban Legends

Every year, the fundraising phenoms at the Junior Symphony Guild raise another landmark or undiscovered gem of houseflesh up from its bare bones into a knockout showplace, all in the space of a few months. And then it’s your turn to walk its halls, oohing and aahing over all the clever and sensuous touches devised by the JSG’s crack team of designers.

The 2007 JSG Showhouse, in fact, started with a completely blank palette: a pristine pair of identical loft-style Central Platte Valley brownstones in the Inca 29 complex west of Coors Field. View the resulting spaces, now anything but identical, when “A Tale of Two Brownstones” opens its doors today for daily tours through May 20. The showhomes, at 2900 Inca Street, will be open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and noon to 3 p.m. Sundays, or meet the designers at happy-hour tours offered from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesdays.

Admission is $16 to $18 ($5 for children ages five to twelve, free for ages four and under); call 303-355-7855 for details.
Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.; Sundays, 12-3 p.m.; Wednesdays, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. & 4-7 p.m. Starts: April 28. Continues through May 20

With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
