The answer to that became clear over the weekend at Vine Street Pub's annual Uptown Neighborhood Block Party and Brewers Olympics, which along with the silly games featured live music and lots of free-flowing beer. Photographer Jake Shane shot these images and more; keep reading for a sneak peek of our slide show.

At 10 a.m. today, Bruhns Auction Gallery began selling off the contents of the Wonder View Tower, the amazing roadside attraction that C.W. Gregory built on the plains a hundred miles from Denver back in 1926, and that subsequent owner Jerry Chubbock turned into an amazing museum stuffed with...stuff.

Chubbuck passed away last year, and now the family is selling all that stuff -- and, perhaps, the tower itself. Keep reading for a look at the building and its contents.

Colorado Photographers Document Disaster in Flood: A Thousand Year Event

Katie Harwood, "February 19, 2014, 5:09:10 PM," Archival Pigment Fiber Based Print, 2014.
When Front Range communities washed away in last year's torrential rains and subsequent floods, some folks who experienced the disaster firsthand did so with cameras in hand, documenting the stark power of nature as rivers jumped their banks to wreak havoc. A year later, the Dairy Center for the Arts will commemorate the Boulder region's floods with Flood: A Thousand Year Event, curated by Mark Sink and featuring images by seven of those photographers: James Balog, Andrew Beckham, Chris Brown, Charles Forsman, Kevin O'Connell, Richard Van Pelt and Katie Harwood. The show opens tonight with artist talks at 4 p.m. and a reception from 5 to 6:30 p.m. and runs through October 10. Admission is free. Keep reading for images from the exhibit.
