Looking for an excuse to get out and unwind? Friday, August 31st, 2018 marks the official arrival of National Eat Outside Day. With the end of summer just three-weeks away, what better way to bid the season a fond adieu before Denver’s brisk fall and winter weather settles in. More than a nice change of scenery, eating outdoors with the sun shining and birds chirping offers bountiful benefits, helping reduce tension, easing depression and anxiety, and exposing you to a much-needed dose of Vitamin D.

  1. Indulge in ice cream on your porch.
    Busy day? Grab a carton of your favorite flavor and wind-down with a bowl of ice cream on the porch with the kids.
  2. Take your lunch ‘to-go.’
    Flee the confines of your desk for a luscious lunch under the sun.
  3. Organize a family cookout in your backyard.
    What better reason to take advantage of fresh air and great company than a Friday evening barbecue with family and friends?
  4. Dine al fresco at your favorite restaurant.

    Taking in a local minor or major league game while indulging in a few guilty pleasures.
