The Denver Lumberjack Party Flannel is the unofficial uniform of Mile High, and since the Denver Lumberjack Party has the requirement of aforementioned uniform for entry, no one should have an excuse for why they are not in attendance, especially since the whole event benefits Environmental Learning for Kids. Yes, there will also be drink specials starting at 2pm at the ViewHouse Downtown, but do it for the kids.

The Denver Bacon and Beer Festival This doesn't really require much explanation. Starting at 2:30pm and ending at 5pm (because no one would stop unless), area restos like Cap City Tavern, Jonesy’s Eat Bar, Second Home Kitchen + Bar, and The Lobby will pair bacon-based dishes with local brews from Copper Kettle, Former Future, Renegade Brewing, and TRVE. They had literally everyone at "bacon and beer".
