Turkey Trot Tomorrow

Turkey Trot along Clear Creek in Golden Colorado

Runners High is sponsoring a Turkey Trot tomorrow morning (Thursday, November 26th).  This is NOT a race:  it’s a fun, 3 mile, non-timed Thanksgiving morning run along Clear Creek, suitable for the entire family.  The entrance fee includes a pumpkin pie for adult runners, and stuffed Tom the Turkey and turkey lollipop kits for kids who register.  Adults will also receive Runners High bottle opener medals.  At the end of the race, they’ll have Cannonball Creek Beer for adults over 21.

Sounds like fun!  You can burn off your turkey before you even eat it!  (Although the pumpkin pie they give the runners may negate that benefit.)  Learn more and register here.

Win $500 by finding elves

Elf on a Shelf at Baby Doe's in Golden Colorado

Small Business Saturday is becoming quite a thing in Golden!  This Saturday, Golden’s merchants will be holding the second annual Golden Elf contest.  Twenty-five ceramic elves will be hidden in businesses around town.  The object is to find them, take a photo of yourself with the elf, and post it to Visit Golden’s Facebook page or Instagram account.  See the details….

Here’s the exciting part:  you might win up to $500!  Every time you post a selfie with an elf, you’re entered, so you can enter up to 25 times.  The top prize is $500, and there are also five $100 prizes.

We’ll post the names of the businesses with elves on Saturday.



Check the current list:  We’ll be updating this all week, as new offers roll in!

Small Business Saturday in Golden Colorado - MSNBC

Small Business Saturday is the antidote to Black Friday.  It’s a chance for people to avoid the malls and big box stores in favor of small, locally-owned businesses.  This year, TV network MSNBC chose to focus on Golden Colorado for their annual Small Business Saturday report!  Their Golden segment is already available online, so you can watch it right now.

It’s fun to see so many of our business owners being interviewed, including Steve Schaeffer from Meyer Hardware, Kelly Jackson-Condon (Table Mountain Vision), Deann Wieber (Windy Saddle Cafe), Pam Eggemyer (Spirits in the Wind Gallery), Kelly Perkins (Spinster Sisters), David Livingston (Vital Outdoors), and Brian Hutchinson from Cannonball Creek Brewing.

Lisa Knipp from MillerCoors describes the Golden Ticket program, where people taking the Coors tour are given tickets that provide discounts or cash prizes at Golden merchants.

You’ll also catch glimpses of the Quilt Museum shop, Silver Horse, the Green Paw, D’Deli, Golden Sweets, Snarfs, Woodys, the Golden Hotel, Golden Goods, Indulge, Peak Cycles, and probably others that I didn’t notice.

Watch it!  It’ll get you in the mood for Small Business Saturday in Golden!

Floating in Golden

Float Tank at Into the Mystic Healing & Arts in Golden Colorado

The November 18, 2015 edition of Time magazine had an article about the mental health benefits of floating in a solution of Epsom salts:  “Behind the Strange New Science of Floating.”

Into the Mystic Healing & Arts, on 14th Street, has one of those flotation tanks!  According to their site, “Flotation therapy is the act of floating on your back in 10 inches of an Epsom Salt/Water solution. 800 pounds of Epsom salt!! You float in a pod.  Free from external stimulation and gravity, your body and mind quickly reach a state of relaxation and meditation.  Many people float to relieve pain, to catch up on rest, to meditate, or to find creative inspiration.”

If you’d like to try their saltwater tank, they offer a first-time special of $50 for an hour.
