Welcome to Groupon Denver! For our inaugural deal, $7 gets you a ticket to the Impulse Theater, located at 1634 18th St.—that's 61% off a retail value of $18 worth of laughs. You're probably thinking, "That sounds great, but I've never bought a car or a computer without first reading the Wikipedia definitions for car and computer—I'm not about to buy a Groupon either without a briefing." Well neither would we, and since this is everyone's first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.

Having filmed their own skate, surf, and snowboard movies for years, Matt D’Amico and Jeff Barrett acquired a taste for digital videography. When Matt and Jeff launched Valley Home Movies, they combined their passion for video editing with their knowledge of antiquated and modern video formats. Using high-capacity computers, they transfer every frame from aging formats such as 8mm and VHS onto reliable DVDs and convert old photos and slides to digital files, ensuring prom pictures may be ridiculed by future generations.

The pair also puts their editing skills to good use, laying down beats for accompanying DVD soundtracks and crafting individualized DVD menus. Videography services and sound engineering round out the company’s offerings, though the staff also shoots still photography, repairs computers, and develops websites.

Hip urbanites, downtown denizens and multi-cultural culinary fiends all flock to Margs Taco Bistro, a trendy downtown Mexican joint known for its fresh fruit margaritas and globetrotting tacos. The urbanized interior is a mash up of exposed brick, shelves of tequila, chartreuse banquettes and eclectic light fixtures, all of which set the scene for a party vibe that extends to the streetside patio. Tacos arrive in multiple guises: pork with pickled cucumbers, scallions, sriracha and hoisin sauce; tempura-battered shrimp topped with ropes of cabbage and avocado; and lamb crowned with lettuce, cucumber-tomato relish and tzatziki sauce scented with mint. The sampler platter comes with a half-dozen different tacos, served with rice and beans. The daily happy hour, which runs from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., features $5 house margaritas and $2 cans of PBR, Tecate and Modelo Especial, making it way too easy to sneak away from your cubicle.

A year after Scott Kerkmans created the role of Chief Beer Officer for the Four Points by Sheraton hotels, it began to get around that Denver was the "Napa Valley of Beer." As NPR later reports, the rumor is a culmination of a life spent steeped in beer culture. Before creating Colorado Beer Week and beating out more than 7,000 applicants for the title of CBO, Kerkmans was on the production side at Alaskan Brewing Company. He’s since authored articles for Draft Magazine, taught at Cook Street School of Fine Cooking, and judged burped renditions of the Pledge of Allegiance at the Great American Beer Festival. He shares his taste in microbrews with more than 140 hotels and restaurants worldwide through the Four Point's beer program, but keeps his feet planted firmly on his home turf during his nine-day spring festival, which highlights the finest pours from Colorado breweries including New Belgium, Oskar Blues, and Ska Brewing Company.

Swathed in light-blue hues and lit with a three-story skylight, Jimmy's Urban Bar and Grill makes an impression on guests before they even sit down at one of the wood booths. With red brick underfoot, visitors can't help but notice as the aromas of house-smoked meats waft past paintings by local artists. Whether settled in the dining room or outside on the patio, diners plunge utensils into inventive dishes such as herbed bison ravioli, african chicken, and pork belly stuffed waffle with a Crown Royal maple gravy?served with creamed spinach. Meanwhile, behind the bar's corrugated steel fa?ade and invisible force field, draft handles bow to dispense pints of craft beers.

Named for the basement vault hidden beneath the historic building for more than a century, the Blake Street Vault embraces its history. The dining room bears the original tin ceilings and exposed brick walls, and the menu is inspired by the food of early Denver immigrants. Dishes such as smoked green chili, burgers made from Colorado buffalo, and flaky chicken pot pies hearken back to campfire cooking, while only slightly more modern treats such as the restaurant's signature moscow mule cocktails impart an old-fashioned touch by being served in copper mugs. After eating, guests can explore the 150-year-old building, venture into its mysterious vault, and track down Lydia, the ghost whose high heels have been heard clicking across the saloon floors when the eatery is empty and trying in vain to start a conga line when it's full.
