One of the coolest places in town (not just temperature-wise) is the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall. Covering 100,000-square-feet, the mall houses all sorts of knick-knacks, collectibles and antiques. It’s so large you could easily spend hours there sifting through the wares.
If you are looking for a fun way to spend Fourth of July, you can get extra savings. For three days, Friday to Sunday, July 3 to 5, everything in the mall is 15% off. Open daily 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. 11301 W. 1-70 Frontage Rd., Wheat Ridge, 303-403-1677.
