Deck your hounds and head to Aspen Grove this Sunday to get your good boy (or girl) in front of Saint Nick. That’s right, Santa himself will be taking pics with pups on the nice list. The cost is $7 per doggo with 100% benefitting the Humane Society of the South Platte Valley. After striking a pose, pup’ll receive a sweet treat for supporting this grrreat cause!
4. Bingo Brunch
Colorado Sake Co., Denver

Trust us, by Sunday afternoon even pup’ll be sick of turkey leftovers. Do yourselves a favor and mix things up with sake-mosas and dim sum at Bingo Brunch. The stakes are high here, folks, cuz prizes include sake and comedy tickets. Reservations aren’t required, but it might be wise to make one, otherwise you’ll be shouting “BINGO” all alone at home.
