The Dime Roll: Weeee! It's the Weekend! (Raise-the-Roof Emoji)

June 16, 2017

We're kicking it back to June 16th, 1884 today to celebrate the first roller coaster in American history opening in Brooklyn (ever heard of Coney Island?). In honor of all things fun, we've compiled five free June activities taking place in Denver/Boulder to fulfill your weekend (or weekday) thrill. We've also got interesting content from around the web, including the psychology behind why it's so dang hard to shop for Dad on Father's Day (lucky for you, we've also compiled some creative gift ideas—problem solved).

If you love The Dime, share us with your friends, your dog, and your grandma (OK, maybe not your grandma). In all seriousness though, we're always looking for new friends; so, don’t forget to forward our weekly email to anyone who might like it (and hit us up on Facebook and Twitter, too).
