Upcoming Phil Goodstein Talks and Tours

December 2015-February 2016

Thursday, December 3: From LoDo to SoDo, 7:00 pm
Promoters of Santa Fe Drive have heralded the area as SoDo, south of downtown.  How it parallels the rise of LoDo is a subject in Phil Goodstein’s new book, How the West Side Won.  This is a free talk on the subject at City Stacks, 1743 Wazee Street.  A copy of this schedule is at LeonardLeonard.com/neighborhoods/walkingtours.  Information about Goodstein’s books is at capitolhillbooks.com

Friday, December 4: Where is West Denver? 7:00 pm
Many are apt to confuse the North Side with the West Side.  A discussion of Phil Goodstein’s new book, How the West Side Won, will deal with Denver geography, comparing his new study with his North Side Story at a North Denver bookstore that doubles as a wine bar, the Book Bar, 4280 Tennyson Street (at the southeast corner of West 43rd Avenue.)  720/443-2227

Saturday, December 5: East Side/West Side, 1:30 pm
Early on, Denver was split by Cherry Creek into the East Side and West Side.  Goodstein will talk about both his How the West Side Won and his book on the East Side, Curtis Park, Five Points, and Beyond at Rosenberg’s Bagels, 725 26th Avenue.  (This is at the corner where 26th Avenue intersects with 27th Street, Washington Street, and Welton Street.)  720/420-9102.

Monday, December 14: Denver’s Oldest Bar, 7:00 pm
