From world-famous beer festivals to superior haunted houses and zombie crawls, this city lives for fall. This week, get to know the Riverside Cemetery during a creepy photo shoot, catch Dracula the ballet (which somehow might make it more creepy), pay homage to George A. Romero, the horror-film king himself, or just enjoy one of the other parties, discussions, arts events and more that you’ll find in this week’s 21 best events.
The Den brothers are throwing a Rooftop Party! From 5 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, October 3, and Wednesday, October 4, the roof of the parking garage at the corner of South Pearl Street and East Florida Avenue will turn into a Japanese street fair. Not only will Toshi and Yasu Kizaki be providing food from Sushi Den, Izakaya Den and Ototo, but they’ve called on twenty of their Japanese chef friends to hop the pond and lend their talents to the bash. Expect ramen, yakisoba noodles, the hard-to-find-in-Denver okonomiyaki, yakiniku (Japanese barbecue) and lots, lots more. Tickets are $75 and include three drinks (additional beverages will be available for purchase). And this party is for a good cause (or three): Proceeds benefit relief efforts for hurricanes Irma and Harvey in Florida and Texas, as well as earthquake victims in Kumamoto, Japan, the hosts’ home town. Purchase tickets at sushiden.net/rooftop, asap.
