This weekend’s Doors Open Denver invites the public inside some of the most interesting architectural icons in the city. It’s an admission-free and stress-free event that allows participation at any level. Stop into a building or two, or spend some time experiencing the carefully-curated tours or taking in some of the special, art-inspired side attractions.
It’s a good idea to spend some time on the Doors Open Denver website planning out your day or signing up, in advance, for the guided options.
If ever there was a year when Laugh Yourself Blue needed to raise $300,000, it was this year.
This popular gala, a dinner with entertainment by comedians Johnny Sanchez and Ruben Paul, is the signature fundraiser for Firefly Autism, which since its start in 2003 has become a national model for helping children with autism reach their full potential.
“Firefly changes the impact autism has on a family,” noted executive director Jesse Ogas.
Nordstrom is selling “mud-stained” jeans to the tune of $425.
They’re called the “Barracuda Straight Leg Jeans” and come with some sort of fake mud substance caked all over them. (It’s not clear what that substance is.) The knees, pockets and crotch of the jeans appear bear most of the faux brown muck.
And as CNN discovered, “the dirt does not wash out, because it’s actually not real dirt.”
The jeans were designed by PRSP and are sold on Nordstrom’s website, which describes them this way:
Heavily distressed medium-blue denim jeans in a comfortable straight-leg fit embody rugged, Americana workwear that’s seen some hard-working action with a crackled, caked-on muddy coating that shows you’re not afraid to get down and dirty.
A few people with jobs that involve getting “down and dirty” are pretty miffed.
Among them is Mike Rowe, the former host of TV’s “Dirty Jobs,” who channeled his befuddled anger in a Facebook post that’s been shared more than 13,500 times and liked more than 31,000 times as of Wednesday morning.
