The Mile High City is in for an exciting week leading all the way up to Easter Sunday, and that’s no April fools joke! Kick the week off with dinner and a movie, and Tuesday head over to 33rd street to learn how to cook Middle Eastern cuisine from the best. With all these great events going on in town this week, it really is a shame that you can only be in one place at a time.
