It might still feel like summer with temperatures in the '80s, but it's hard to ignore those crunchy amber Aspen leaves accumulating beneath our feet, or the plump Gala apples brightening up waning famers' market stands. As the sounds, tastes and colors of fall gradually hit Denver, it is time to revel in the annual harvest our town has produced. And what better way to rejoice than with a festival honoring the fall equinox, the time when day and night are nearly equal in duration and summer is officially over, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac, and sometimes called the Pagan Thanksgiving in magical communities. Shift into the new season with one of these Autumnal Equinox events.

Reese Witherspoon stars as Cheryl Strayed in Wild.
In 1995, after the death of her mother and the dissolution of her marriage, Cheryl Strayed looked for comfort by dabbling in sex and heroin. When that only made her problems worse, Strayed embarked on an ambitious journey to hike 1,100 miles of the Pacific Coast Trail. In 2012 Strayed turned her trek into a memoir: Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail. This Friday, September 19, Strayed will be at the Paramount Theatre to talk about her book and the upcoming film version starring Reese Witherspoon.

Hold Your Horses! Six Amazing Facts About Odysseo

Categories: Events

The Color-ish Company
If you've seen the billboards around town for Odysseo, which opens on Wednesday, September 17, in the Pepsi Center parking lot, then you know that tastemeister Larry King says this horse-and-acrobat extravaganza "surpasses the world's greatest shows." In fact, there's a lot of hyperbole surrounding the performance, but after chatting with Cavalia founder and Odysseo artistic director Normand Latourelle -- who humbly (no, really) calls Odysseo "the most beautiful show in the world" -- we have the feeling that this is one spectacle that lives up to the hype. Here are six facts that help support that stance:

Zombies, Booze and the Pub Crawls of the Dead

Zombies and booze go great together because, well, booze goes great with everything. Besides, when the undead are clawing at your door, doing their best to feast on your entrails and you're trapped inside with no possible escape, do you want to face that fate sober? No. No, you do not. This Saturday, the End of the World Pub Crawl (starting at The Armoury, or one of several other bars on that same block) is celebrating the wonders of combining drinking and zombies by sending a horde of zombies to eat your brains as you attempt to complete a pub crawl and destroy those same brains with tasty, tasty alcohol. To get you in the spirit, we've compiled this handy list of films that put the experience of drinking in the undead apocalypse front and center -- or at least inspire your next movie-drinking game.
