Breckenridge Brewery is running free buses from the Crowne Plaza Downtown (1450 Glenarm Place) Thursday, Friday, and Saturday (October 6-8) to their new Littleton brewery and back. Buses depart from the hotel at 10:00 am and 12:00 pm each of the three days. They're giving complimentary tours of the brewery that include a pint with time to enjoy their Farm House and beer garden before the groups head back. The 12:00 group departs the brewery at 3:00 to head back downtown, meaning those with GABF tickets and those without can all attend. Check out their website here for more information, special events, and promotional brews in celebration of GABF.

If GABF isn't really your thing, or you're looking to scare the living shit out of your whole family, these haunted houses are sure to make even the most resilient shit their britches. We even went through the trouble of checking both these houses out for you, and trust us, it wasn't easy. Nothing says Halloween like shooting extremely realistic, havoc-reaping zombies, though (@ Field of Screams).

Check out our review for 13 floor here, and our review of Field of Screams here.

Annual bRUNch Run  

8:30 AM - 12 PM
Stapleton Central Park, Denver

Tickets here

Come run off all that blood-alcohol related madness bright and early in Stapleton, CO. The bRUNch Run is a one of a kind race feeding everyone’s appetite for food, fitness, and fun. Runners start their morning off on the right foot with a timed 5K and 10K run, followed by indulging in some of the best brunch food and libations (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) alike that Colorado has to offer.

The bRUNch Run is a unique experience supporting health and wellness within the Denver community. There is more to running then putting one foot in front of the other. After a workout the body needs fuel and bRUNch provides you with just that. Upon finishing the race, enjoy a brunch festival featuring local eateries and morning libations, and non-alcoholic beverages. 

It's is an annual fundraiser for Metro Caring, an amazing organization that provides nutritious food to hungry members of the community all while promoting health and self-sufficiency.
