It’s another beautiful Friday here in Denver where the Nuggets are NBA Champions, we’ve got a lovely weekend ahead featuring Father’s Day and Juneteenth, and all the BBQ, ice cream, and stories from the week that will send you off just right. Here’s what we cover this week:

*The Denver Nuggets won the NBA Championship this week, held a parade where elation and good vibes ruled the day (along with some incredible public drunkenness), and we shared our memories, thoughts and insights about the whole deal. Head to our sister site Mile High Sports for all of their great coverage.

*Thanks to unprecedented rain in the Mile High, sinkholes have wrought havoc on Denver roads. Full story from Fox 31 here.

*Local musician WHAX (aka Whitt Kelly) raises money for Angels with Paws in a cool way. You can find out more here.

*Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak will step aside after his 41st season. No one call my grandmother while Wheel is on! You can read more about Pat here.

*The Michelin Guide will now create a guide exclusive to Colorado, something almost no other state gets. Find out more about that here.

*We share our thoughts about BBQ and offer a profile on GQue, a super cool locally based chain that utilizes other local vendors in its business. Read more about them here.

*Our pals at City Cast Denver want to hear from you about your favorite local ice cream shops. We offer our own faves. Check out City Cast here.

*Where are the best hikes in Colorado? We share our picks, and you can find a full list here.

*We run down the best things to do this weekend including The Frickashinas headlining at East Fax Tap, Father’s Day, and Juneteenth.

Our theme song comes from The Frickashinas
