Haunted Fun in Golden

October 19, 2017

Oh Susanna Vintage Photo Parlor - Golden Colorado

Oh Susanna Vintage Photo Parlor has added some intriguing events to Golden’s Halloween offerings.  The studio is located on the second floor of the Buffalo Rose building. In the 19th century, this was the location of the Overland Hotel. More than one spectacular murder took place in that location, as well as several other spots in downtown Golden. On Friday nights during October, they’re leading a Haunted Pub Crawl through historic downtown Golden. Join them tomorrow night at 7:30 as they tell spooky stories at State 38’s Corner Saloon, the Goozell Yogurt Building, the Table Mountain Inn, the Astor House, Miners Saloon, and, if time permits, at the Golden Moon Speakeasy. Click here to buy tickets.

On Saturday nights, they host Theater of the Dead. Watch as an unsolved murder from 1893 is reconstructed in the darkened streets of Golden, then join a combination scavenger hunt/real-life game of Clue to discover who-dun-it! This event has been so popular that the Saturday shows are nearly sold out, so they’ve added two extra shows–Monday night, October 30th and Tuesday night, October 31st. Click here for tickets.

And did we mention that their main business is taking old-time photos? During the month of October, they’ll add a free optional ghost to your photos!

Congratulations to New Terrain Brewing Company!

October 15, 2017

New Terrain Brewing Company - Golden Colorado

Congratulations to New Terrain Brewing Company for winning a silver medal at last weekend’s Great American Beer Festival!

New Terrain Brewing Company was recognized in the Belgian Witbier style category for its Suntrip, a refreshing Wit beer made with a blend of traditional and unique ingredients, including hand-milled coriander, which is evident in the gently spiced citrus aroma. The palate has generous notes of tangerine, red apple and pear. The soft texture and pale color come from the use of malted wheat and a special yeast, producing a hazy cloudiness that gave rise to the dutch term “Wit” or white beer. The recipe has been a house favorite from day one, so much so that a spinoff fruited version, Rubus Deliciousus – the Suntrip Wit brewed with fresh raspberries, has a cult following.

This was an impressive feat for a brewery that just celebrated their 1st Anniversary last month!  Why not head to the brewery this afternoon and try the winning brew for yourself?

Meyer Hardware - Golden CO

Those beautiful leaves will be dropping soon, so if you’re a homeowner, you’ll need to rake them.  Why not just leave them laying in the yard?  Because they’ll kill your grass!  According to Meyer Hardware’s website, “Leaves can deprive your lawn of adequate nutrition by blocking water, nutrients, and healthy air from reaching the roots, invite lawn pests, diseases, and problems like snow mold and brown patch, and block one of the most important elements for growing healthy grass: sunlight.”

Fortunately, Meyer’s has everything you need for the job, including a variety of rakes, leaf blowers, and the compostable yard waste bags required by the City.
