Civic Center Eats is this city's most popular summertime gathering place, with workers making a beeline for the park for some midday fun in the sun, and maybe even lunch. From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays (not May 31, however), dozens of food trucks and vendors line up in the park, providing both food and food for thought.

And today's Eats has something special on the menu: Kayla Marque, a Denver singer-songwriter who's been performing for a decade and will be one of the featured acts at the Westword Music Showcase, will be entertaining the crowds at lunch. And Westword will be there to do a Facebook Live for anyone not able to make the show.

These Westword Music Showcase artist spotlights will continue into June, with Jennifer Jane Nicely booked for Thursday, June 7; Lady Gang for June 14, and a TBA act on June 21; see the complete Showcase local lineup here.

The Westword Music Showcase starts at noon Saturday, June 23, and runs through the night across the Golden Triangle, just south of Civic Center Park. (The two main outdoor stages close at 10 p.m.) Find information and tickets at
