Attendance at yesterday's Race for the Cure in downtown Denver was estimated at 30,000. Even though the total is roughly equal to the number of participants in 2013, the sum still must be considered progress given sharp declines the preceding two years: Approximately 50,000 took part 2011and 40,000 in 2012, with the dip attributed to a (since-reversed) decision by Susan G. Komen for the Cure to end its partnership with Planned Parenthood a couple of years back. Still, photos from the Susan G. Komen Colorado Facebook page show that those who took to the streets early yesterday were in high spirits. Check out a sampling of photos below, and to see more, click here.

In an August 2013 profile, Melanie Asmar described Mike Dunafon and Debbie Matthews as the king and queen of Glendale: He's the mayor, while she's the owner of Shotgun Willie's, one of Colorado's most iconic strip clubs.

Now, this power couple has scored another coup: They found a legal way for Shotgun Willie's to serve alcohol past 2 a.m., when state regulations call for bartenders to put away their bottles. How did they do it?

Judging by the photos our Marissa Shevins brought back from this week's Denver Cruiser Ride, we might have had a tough time guessing the theme if we didn't already know what it was. Some riders followed it pretty closely, others tweaked it in interesting ways and a slew of folks simply did their own thing. We answer the question at the bottom of the post. Check out the photos below.

This week's Denver Cruiser Ride theme was "Road Warriors," and that was appropriate, since the weather was positively apocalyptic -- or at least it rained a bit. That didn't stop the Cruisers, though, and as a bonus, their end-of-the-world costumes helped repel the moisture. Check out Jake Shane's photos of the fun below.
