A&E best bets: Ghosts, kites and a run on the rocks
Check out a high-flying international event with strings attached, a werewolf in Arvada or the lung-burning stairs at Red Rocks. By Lisa Ryckman

Dave on film: Taking a trip to Zombieland
It takes a certain sense of humor to enjoy a horror comedy film like Zombieland, but if you can laugh at graphic violence and can see the humor in parody, then this is a great movie for you. Brilliantly funny, full of great lines, Zombieland offers a zombie film unlike any other I’ve seen, though perhaps the cult hit Shaun of the Dead comes somewhat close. By Dave Taylor

Golden arches on 16th Street Mall suits corporate crowd
Fast-food patrons along Denver’s 16th Street Mall might have done a double-take when the McDonald’s at Cleveland Place reopened recently after being closed several months for a $1 million remodeling. With patent leather booths, local art, a stage for performers and walls made of Colorado quarried stone, nothing is reminiscent of a typical McDonald’s -- except for the food. By Patricia Kaowthumrong

Colorado Cool Stuff: Create your own superhero
Brothers Keith and Kevin Johnson started elope – an acronym for “everybody’s laughing on planet Earth” – in 1993 selling mad hatter-style hats to ski and snowboard shops. In the years since, they’ve started a plant in China that manufactures exclusively for elope and grown to offer more than 1,000 products. By Eric Peterson
