I can’t believe we’re in October already. Where has this year gone?—oh right…to COVID. COVID has forced us to adapt in just about every area of our lives. But we’re humans, and adapting is what we do! I’ve been so impressed by all the ways we’ve adapted to this virus. Human creativity coupled with tech has kept us connected, businesses running, and brought new products and services to the world. It really is amazing when you think about it.
With the Halloween holiday approaching, I’ve seen some cool ways we are adapting to keep the festivities alive. Today’s topics give you a few ideas for Halloween activities and I also talk about our buildings and the best places to stay safe and productive. Let’s go!
P.S. – I also want to make sure that I inform everyone that we’re bringing free beer back! To start, we’ll be handing out beer cans from Ratio Beerworks one happy hour every week. Check the membership portal for the day and time!
What halloween activities are safe and open around denver?
We’re still in the midst of the pandemic but that doesn’t mean Halloween has to be a drag! There’s plenty of fun social distancing activities to ring in one of our favorite holidays.
Trick or Treat?
As of now, there are no state or local restrictions on your kids trick or treating in Colorado. According to this KDVR article, “Doctors at UCHealth say trick-or-treating can be done safely. Social distancing is a must. Individually wrapped candies and masks under masks are also recommended.”
If trick or treating does get the okay to move forward, some suggestions I have heard are to leave a bowl of candy at the door, especially if you are an at-risk individual.
The Chatfield Farms 7-Acre Corn Maze is open for the season! As long as you are socially distanced by 6-feet and wearing a mask (not a Halloween mask), you are free to explore the large 15-foot-tall maze. Admission gets you a complimentary hayride and access to the pumpkin patch and more!
Be sure to get your tickets online ahead of time here.
One of my favorite past times around Halloween is getting scared s**tless at a professionally-done haunted house. The 13th Floor, always a favorite, is open this year, requiring masks. You’ll move through the haunted house with your group only to ensure social distancing.
For those wanting a scare, but sensitive to being around people, there’s an all-new spooky attraction just for you! Check out the City of the Dead Drive-In Haunted House. Now you can get properly spooked from the safety of your car. Its crazy to see how these businesses are adapting!
Get your tickets early so they don’t sell out.
Parties are tough right now. They bring together people from different friend groups like a giant petri dish. Social distancing at house parties almost never works. So unless you’re keeping the party small, I’d find something else to do.
But bars are open guys. And depending on the weather, they should all be set up for outdoor dining and drinking. So throw on your best costume and hit the town. You’ll find me at the usual spot: Lustre Pearl.
I’ve noticed more people in the building lately. Where are the best areas in the building to social distance and get work done?
I feel you and your concern is warranted, but no need to worry! Enterprise RiNo is so big, and we have a bunch of options to make member’s with floater memberships feel safe and productive.
The member’s Areas in RiNo and Greenwood Village is the first place I would look. We only have a set number of chairs at the tables and they’re spaced over 6 feet apart, so you really only get 2-3 people per table, and the tables are long!
The kitchen is a great place to work whether you’re in RiNo or GWV. The tables are all spaced far apart and the room is large and wide, allowing for great airflow. One thing to keep in mind in the kitchen is that you need your mask on when not eating or drinking. This is a high-traffic area, so we just want to be as safe as possible.
The Forum (formerly called The Classroom) is just like the members area. We have a bunch of tables set up for daily use (unless we have an event going on). Both The Forum RiNo and The Forum GWV are set up for floaters to come in and work safely and there’s hardly anyone in there!
Also like the member’s Areas, the Library in RiNo is a great, quiet place to set up shop. Safely social distance while staying productive in this quiet space. No talking in here please!
The lobby is right next to my domain: the café! Its not the quietest place in the building, but there’s a bunch of tables and socially-distanced seating near me to keep you safe and caffeinated all day long.
There’s no better place to work—in my opinion—than up on the gorgeous rooftop patio. There’s seats, shade, views, and best of all—FRESH AIR! Soak up the last of the year’s sun up there. It’s getting cold fast, but Denver always has those warm winter days that make rooftop work possible throughout the year.

To take social distancing to the safest level, Enterprise is now offering private suite day rentals. If you have a team, who wants a private suit for the day, bring ‘em! Rent the suite out solo or with other teammates you are in close-contact with.
