The Giver, Jackson Browne, Stephen White At The Tattered Cover And Other Things To Do This Week In Denver (PHOTOS)

Thanksgiving may be next week, but who can say no to food festivals and flavor savoring?

And the best part is that it involves no cooking on your part.

This week we recommend booking a slot in Cuisine Connectors' "Savor the Flavors" casual walking tour and treating your pre-Thanksgiving self to decadent cupcakes, old world salumi, wines and more. Or buying tickets to Denver's Chef N' Brew Festival, where the Mile High City's most talented chefs and brewers partake in a challenge of presenting you with their best brew and food combination, and you choose the winner.

Jackson Browne performs in town this week, author Stephen White signs his latest book at the Tattered Cover Bookstore and this is your last chance to watch the wonderful Denver Center Theatre adaptation of Lois Lowry's "The Giver."

Check out our list of things to do in Denver this week!
