SatisFriday: Memorial Day Weekend Eats

Category: Keep Cherry Creek Unique

May 22, 2020

Memorial Day looks different for all of us this year, but there are still lots of ways to get a taste of Cherry Creek North during the unofficial start of summer this weekend.

Austin Fowler Mural

Check out the newest addition to the neighborhood! We love seeing your unique views of this public art, so keep tagging @cherrycreeknorth for a chance to be featured on our social media pages.

Below, we've rounded up some delicious updates: a behind-the-scenes look at a brand new mural dedicated to food service workers and some takeout specials to get the weekend started.

If you plan to visit Cherry Creek North this weekend, please wear a face covering as required by the City of Denver's face covering order. Here's a list of CCN businesses selling face masks and covers, including some selling children's sizes. Also, we appreciate your efforts to maintain six feet of distance from others to keep our community safe.

We wish you a beautiful and safe Memorial Day Weekend, and give our thanks to the brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

New Mural

Earlier this week, local artist Austin Zucchini-Fowler completed the sixth and seventh installments of his "Wall of Gratitude" series, marking the first-ever public mural in Cherry Creek North! Located at 257 Fillmore Street, the mural honors the grocers, cooks, delivery drivers and all of the local heroes who are working tirelessly to serve our community even as dining rooms remain closed.

Check out Austin's work on Instagram (@austinzart). Austin is selling prints and tees here of the entire series. For every ten prints sold, a print will be sent to a different hospital in the US.

Watch a time lapse video showing Austin's progress below and tag @cherrycreeknorth in your mural photos for a chance to be featured on our social media pages!
