Here are some top picks for spending a spectacular weekend in Denver, Dec. 16-18, 2016. In the mood for music? Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats will be performing on Friday and Saturday. If you’re looking for something more holiday-related and family-friendly, the Colorado Symphony and Chorus will be performing Handel’s “Messiah,” and this weekend is also your last chance to see “Tiny Tim’s Christmas Carol.” It almost goes without saying that the Denver Broncos will be playing the New England Patriots on Sunday. If you don’t have tickets to the game, there are plenty of great places to view it at various bars and breweries in downtown and the River North Art District (RiNo).
