There is so much to do here in Denver, and it's also a great hub for travel bloggers to visit parts unknown. Below is a list (in alphabetical order) of Denver and Colorado blogs that write about travel or the best adventures to have locally.
Denver Zombie Crawl returned to the Mile High City with a vengeance this year. Sure, since the date for the event was a bit earlier than normal there was perhaps a bit lighter attendance (not much), but our Colorado undead were no less enthusiastic. In fact, I would say the commitment to blood was over the top in 2017. Not surprisingly, the costume we saw the most often was CLOWNS ... and given my great fear of them, I hid behind my camera all day. Besides the clowns, I love how Zombie Crawls brings all the Denverites out. It's such a diverse event that you can adapt for yourself. We go with our best friends and the kids, but later in the night head out adults-only for the after-parties. It's an awesome Colorado event that has something for everyone.
Every year, when I attend Denver Comic Con, I try to lurk in the shadows. Mainly because I like catching people in candid moments rather than setting them up all posey-posey. Not that there is anything wrong with smiling straight into the camera for photos - I just love observing the wide variety of people at DCC and how they interact with each other. 2017 brought the geek out for 115,000 attendees and again makes Denver the third largest Comic Con in the country (behind San Diego and New York). There were some rule changes and lots of space reorganization that bewildered folks at first (including me) - but once we got the hang of it, all was well.
Your may notice that it's August and Westword Music Showcase happened in June. I hate it when people make excuses for late posts, but hopefully I can get a pass after the year I have had? Pretty please? Either way, my lateness is no reflection on the awesomeness of WMS. The style of headliners shifted a bit this year - whereas the end of the night has usually been full of pumping beats and lights... and for 2017, Shakey Graves torn down the house (err, parking lot) with just his voice and a guitar. Personally, I welcome the change - particularly with The Revivalists romping around just as the sun was setting on a gorgeous Denver day.

I have to apologize to Nerd Prom Denver for the lateness of this post, seeing as the geekfest actually happened in April. But their founder Andy Rok is out at the Wonder Woman movie with my husband this very moment, so I thought it was a perfect opportunity to catch up - and relive the fun. This year's headliners were MC Lars and Megaran, who seem to have been put on this earth to perform together. Nerd Prom 2017 also included Rocket Surgeons, DJ Boyhollow, hosts Alf & Rick as well as Andy's own band The Real Deal.
