CCNNA Member Tour: Dikeou Collection
Discover a Denver Gem and Get to Know Your Neighbors!
The Dikeou Collection is a contemporary art collection in downtown Denver that was established in 1998 by siblings, Devon and Pany Dikeou, and features works by approximately 30 international artists.
This place is an experience. After entering the building at 1615 California, one takes an old elevator up to the fifth floor and when the doors open it feels like you’re a world away from the busy energy of modern life that’s playing out on the 16th Street Mall below. Is this the 1940s? The 1930s? The retro style of the space is disarming and provides a fascinating counter balance to the very fresh contemporary art, which is displayed in a series of converted offices.
Our exclusive tour of the Dikeou Collection will feature a guided tour with Director Hayley Richardson.
This free tour is open to all current CCNNA members and limited to 20 participants.
On Monday, November 6, Cherry Creek North residents will have a rare opportunity to savor the delicious dining experience that is Del Frisco’s Grille at our special Dines Out/Members Only night. This award-winning restaurant has set aside a private area for our evening’s pleasure, although both the rooftop patio and the main bar will be open for us during Happy Hour. Menu selections will be chosen the night of the dinner from two salads and three entrees. Sides and desserts will be served “family style.”
Happy Hour will begin at 6:00 PM and we expect the evening to end about 9:00 PM.
The unbelievable price for this dinner including tax and tip is only $65.00 per person!
Here is the menu:
Choice of Salad: The Grille Salad, greens, vegetables, bacon, vinaigrette or Chopped Caesar.
Choice of Entrée: 6 oz. Filet; Seared Salmon Filet; Brick Chicken.
Sides include hand-mashed potatoes and roasted asparagus.
Desserts: Lemon Doberge Cake or Warm Chocolate Cake
The maximum number of guests is 50, so early registration online is imperative if you want to attend. See you there!
The enormous amount of redevelopment in Cherry Creek North has put a premium on available area parking. In turn, the Cherry Creek Shopping Center has seen an increasing number of non-shoppers over-utilizing its surface lots and covered spaces which have an intended priority for customers and patrons. This has now necessitated the introduction of paid parking in the Shopping Center with a one-hour grace period and in some cases individual store validation. Beginning in mid-January 2017, the first hour will be free; the second hour will cost $3; the third hour $1, and additional hours will cost $2 each, with a daily maximum of $16.
There is a silver lining however, it's Smart Parking. When a vehicle enters, a camera will snap the license plate as a ticket is issued. Customers will carry their ticket with them and, upon leaving the mall, insert the ticket into one of 27 conveniently located, highly visible kiosks. Validation for less than 1 hour or from a store will be recorded. If any payment is due, the kiosks accept bills (no coins), credit and debit cards. An optional feature will even show the location of the parked car. Patrons will have reasonable time (to be announced) to reach their car and leave. When a ticket has been processed, another “eye” at each exit will recognize the license plate as the car approaches, and the guard arm will automatically open without the insertion of a ticket, speeding exit.
Want more? Brio and Elway’s, the AMC Movie Theaters, The Container Store and Boulder Running Company have already announced they will validate. Other retailers may come on board. Validations will occur at point of purchase. Safeway anticipates most of its customers will spend less than an hour and their kiosk will be at their exit. Red, green and blue lights will quickly alert covered space-seekers to “in use,” “available” and “ADA” spaces respectively. Fees will be waived during community events such as Cherry Creek Fresh Markets, Cherry Creek Arts Festival and the Cherry Creek Sneak. Coming soon: a third dedicated lane exiting the Center onto Steele Street. For more information please visit: www.shopcherrycreek.com/smartparking.
