Eat: Start with a Dangerous Monkey drip coffee at Pablo’s Coffee to get you wide eyed and bushy tailed. Stroll down 6th Avenue to the Esquire Theater and see Jeff Bridges, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Colin Farrell on the silver screen in Crazy Heart, at the Esquire Theater. After all the hard drinking and broken marriages Bridges’ goes through, you may have worked up an appetite. Head straight to Table 6 and nibble on Little Phillies and Fried Brussel Sprouts before cutting into your Sirloin Minute Steak. Cap off the evening with a closing Novo espresso (served at Table 6). Voila! Perfect date night!

Pray: With Good Friday and Easter this weekend, if you are spiritual or a believer, be sure to count your blessings and give thanks to the Lord. What better place than the gorgeous, magnificent Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, on Colfax and Logan, to attend an Easter service.
Love: This also happens to be First Friday of the month which as you all know means, art, shopping, drinks and more than enough to do. My top picks would be the champagne First Fridays at True Love Shoes and Accessories on Broadway first and foremost. Get your shop on! Spring has arrived, and you’ll definitely find a strappy sandal and bright, shiny handbag for that Easter egg you have to man this weekend. Next, shake it up and take a break from the usual Santa Fe Art District crowd, and cab it over to the Golden Triangle District for the First Friday festivites. Courtney Cotton’s work is the perfect eye candy to start April off with a pop. “Cotton’s work tends toward the experiential—capturing the emotional essence of an instant, often in a riot of rich color.” Meet the artist from 5-9 pm. And since you’re in the hood, head to Bannock Street to celebrate Fashion Denver’s one year anniversary of their showroom space! Have a beer from Wynkoop brewery and listen to jams by Sammy T. and give your congrats to Brandi Shigley and company for their constant support of Denver fashion designers!!!!
