When the winter gets long, Denverites drink good beer. On the calendar this month, you’ll find no shortage of beer festivals—some with music and one with grilled cheese. (There’s also a tequila festival.) If alcohol isn’t your solution to February, there’s plenty here for you too. Check out some great films, plan your next vacation, or get inspired to start a garden. End the month with a date for a date for Restaurant Week, which starts Feb. 21.
