Colfax is notorious -- not just here in Denver, but across the nation. But while the longest continuous street in America has enjoyed a somewhat shady reputation in the past, today Colfax offers an incredible blending of cultures and some of Denver's most unusual culinary experiences. Tasty ones, too.

The Bluebird District (between Colorado and York on Colfax) will be the scene for this year's Tasty Colfax event. Since 2009, the restaurant and pub crawl along East Colfax has encouraged attendees to sample their way through the eclectic restaurants along a stretch of the infamous street. In addition to all the tasty treats, the event will feature a main stage, ten local bands and six artists.
The restaurant and pub crawl begins at 5:30 p.m. with an after-party at 8 p.m. at the Park House Pub featuring comedian Chris Carlton and local band Champion. Tickets for the evening are now $30. Buy yours and find out what restaurants will be participating at bluebirdbeat.com.
