Down and Out in Denver

Wednesday Links

  • Looks like Beauty Bar has finally opened. The chain has franchises all over the country, from New York to San Francisco. Denver’s Beauty Bar, located in the old Snake Pit space, is owned by three locals, but no doubt has all the same bells, whistles, and kitschy ’50s salon décor of its sisters.
  • Grow up Cristiano Ronaldo.
  • I’ve been thinking about celebrating an upcoming milestone birthday somewhere unique and outside of the norm… with a few good gal pals, of course. One of the places on the top of my list is Marfa, Texas, best known as the home of The Chinati Foundation and the filming location for the movie Giant, starring James Dean, Rock Hudson, and Elizabeth Taylor. I’ve been dying to see Prada Marfa for years and you’ll most likely find me staying here.
  • MCA Denver’s newest exhibition, Energy Effects: Art and Artifacts From the Landscape of Glorious Excess, opens today with an all day celebration featuring artists talks, cocktails, and general mayhem. Energy Effects is presented in partnership with the 2010 Biennial of the Americas.
  • 87% of women want you to want them… and so do Betty, Mama, and Pepper over at The Denver Omelette.
  • The 20th annual Cherry Creek Arts Festival opens Saturday and will run from July 3-5 in Cherry Creek North.
