Coohills, 1400 Wewatta Street, has launched a new summer concert series: Beats on the Creek will take place every Tuesday on the restaurant's patio -- and the adjacent bridge over Cherry Creek -- from 5 to 8:15 p.m.
"We're thrilled to be offering lower downtown a concert series in an urban setting," says co-owner Dian Coohill. "We'll also be supporting the Greenway Foundation, which is dedicated to preserving the beauty we enjoy right next to our restaurant."
The lineup of local acts includes Rob Drabkin tonight, Under a Blood Red Sky on July 24, Hazel Miller Band on July 31, and Blackberry Bushes String band on August 7.
Food, wine and cocktails will be available for purchase during the concerts and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Greenway Foundation; a nonprofit whose efforts to advance the South Platte River and its surrounding tributaries were recently profiled in Westword.
