Almost a century ago, T.S. Eliot wrote that “April is the cruelest month” in his famous poem The Waste Land. Today, his words seem more true than ever as the weather is warming up and we, citizens of Denver (and the world) are stuck inside, self-quarantining, social-distancing, and wondering what’s in store for our future. But Tree Ring Digital is here to help you take a break from the stress of the pandemic with our monthly installment of things to do in Denver – THE VIRTUAL EDITION! 

While Netflix and social media are great, there’s only so many times you can binge watch The Office and scroll through your Facebook feed before you begin to get a bit stir crazy. So we’ve combed the internet to find Denver-based things that you and your family can do online while you’re stuck inside. 

As for the Tree Ring Digital team, we’re still working – remotely – to help businesses succeed. If you need website and/or marketing help in these trying times, give us a call. We’re here to help.
