Western Colorado Needs its Own 303 Day
If you've lived in Denver, you know that today, March 3 is 303 Day. The name comes from the main area code in the Denver metro area and is celebrated with a bunch of food and drink specials and events, most of which are free. However, even though as Western Colorado residents we love our state, it doesn't feel right celebrating an area code that is four hours away.
Now hear me out, what if we on the western slope celebrated September 7 or 970 Day? Here's how we could do it:
Food and Drink Specials
Now, this one isn't free, but it's going to be a lot of fun. Colorado band 3OH!3 will be playing at the Mission Ballroom, in celebration of 303 Day, something we could definitely do at The Mesa Theater with our own local bands.
Finally, Mutiny Information Cafe in Denver is hosting a poetry series, which is technically free but a $5 donation is suggested. There are plenty of venues that could accommodate something like this in Grand Junction.
So what do you say? Would September 7 be the ideal day to celebrate a 970 Day? I feel like we should make this happen.
