Things to Do

Start Your Day With a Free Egg McMuffin, Then Head to Last Civic Center Eats

Yesterday, fast-food aficionados around the country celebrated not having to get out of bed before 10:30 a.m. if they wanted to order off the elusive McDonald's breakfast menu.  For many, a Sausage and Egg McMuffin was the only redeeming part of being up early — but the chain will now be offering a limited breakfast menu all day long: So go ahead, hit that snooze button. Because today, in honor of the ground-breaking move, anyone who rolls out of bed and heads to the nearest Colorado McDonald's without getting dressed—but keep your PJs on, please; don't venture out in public in your birthday suit—will get a free Egg McMuffin. The deal runs from 5 a.m. to midnight at all participating Colorado locations. For more information on the all-day breakfast menu, click here.     

On the other end of the food spectrum, the Conscious Alliance is throwing the second annual Art That Feeds Harvest Celebration from 6 to 9 p.m. today. Guests will get hors d’oeuvres created by some of Boulder's best chefs (led by Hosea Rosenberg of Blackbelly Market), libations to pair with the food, a musical performance by Nahko, a silent auction and more, all at eTown Music Hall. Tickets are $125 general admission or $200 for VIP; grab yours and learn more here

And don't forget that today is the last day in 2015 when you can enjoy metro Denver’s largest gathering of gourmet food trucks at Civic Center Eats. Make your way down to the park from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to dig in before it's too late.
