A weekend of new beginnings awaits you in Denver this weekend.

This weekend brings a lot of favorite activities back to the Denver area, including the return of baseball as the Rockies take on the Dodgers at Coors Field and the first weekend of 1st Friday ArtWalk in Colorado Springs. It's also the first release of Four Grain Straight Whiskey at The Block Distilling Co. in over a year. This weekend is also Easter, which means egg hunts (including those geared toward adults) and brunch offerings. There's plenty to do this weekend in Denver.
