Leap Year is giving us an extra day to enjoy two artisan products before they disappear. In Englewood, Devil's Head Distillery is hosting a going-away party on February 29 in anticipation of closing soon (an exact date hasn't been named), so drop in at the tasting room at 3296 South Acoma Street for a taste of locally made aquavit and a bottle to take home. And in Curtis Park, you have this last weekend to enjoy the unusual beer-wine hybrids known as oenobeers at Liberati Restaurant & Brewery before the year-and-a-half-old business closes.
