Looking for something a little different for dinner? Consider the Global Food & Brews Festival on Thursday, June 29. From 5 to 8 p.m., The Spring Cafe, at 1373 Grant Street, will provide unlimited beer from Ratio Beerworks, as well as Ethiopian, Syrian and Burmese cuisine. The latter two are especially difficult to find in Denver; in fact, there are currently no local restaurants specializing in Burmese food, so this may be your only opportunity to sample this food for some time. Tickets, $35, are on sale at

Friday, June 30
Everything old is new again, especially when it comes to the Old West. The McNichols Project's second installation, The Wild West Project, will open its doors on Friday, June 30, from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. The exhibit juxtaposes diversity in the modern West with diversity in the Old West through two art exhibitions at the McNichols Building, 144 West Colfax Avenue. Also on hand will be regionally inspired cocktails from Bear Creek, Deerhammer and High West distilleries, live music (that's country and Western) and snacks. Tickets are just $30, and whether your idea of Western life is gunslingers, swinging saloon doors and hookers with hearts of gold or getting high while sipping your craft beer and keeping your carefully waxed mustache from getting foamy, circle the wagons and get those tickets at the event website before they go the way of the Hatfields and McCoys.
