Welcome to Thursday, Roundupians!
If it feels like the office is skewing a little young today, don’t worry!
This isn’t some radical restructuring effort from management (we think). Today is National Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day — the one day of the year when we expose our children to the slow burning anguish that is aging, because it’s about time someone took them down a peg.
One tip just in case you encounter a tyke or two at the office: Try not to crush their dreams.
Or you can always go the other way.
“Just become independently wealthy, Jenny, and you can avoid all this.”

“Alexa, open Denver Post”
G-Line debut: Here’s what’s coming to the stops on metro Denver’s newest RTD rail line
Clear Creek and Federal Station the third stop from Union Station on the RTD 11-mile G Line that will open on April 26 taking people from Wheat Ridge to Union Station in 27 minutes with stops in Arvada April 23, 2019. (Joe Amon, The Denver Post)
This is not a dream. After two years of missed deadlines, the long-overdue G-Line is about to finally become a thing. With the first train set to leave the station on Friday, here’s a quick tour of what to expect from John Aguilar.
In northwest Denver, a developer hopes to restore a nearly century-old theater to showtime glory
The historic Yates Theater building at 4879 W. 44th Ave. in Denver’s Berkeley neighborhood opened in 1926 as a movie theater. The developer behind the Denver Central Market now aims to turn it into a concert venue and event hall. (Matt Sebastian, The Denver Post )
“This story of this building should be able to be preserved and told to people.”
Ari Stutz, partner and director of real estate for Downtown Property Services
Pretty soon, Denver’s Berkeley neighborhood could have a new concert venue on its hands.
The company behind the Denver Central Market food hall in Five Points has designs to revive a nearly century-old theater in the area. Before their liquor-license hearing for the property next month, the developers will pitch their plans to neighbors from the city’s Berkeley neighborhood — not all of whom appear to be on board with the idea, Joe Rubino reports.
NFL draft should answer which direction the Broncos are going

Chris Harris might’ve been the one making headlines in recent days, but all that gets shoved aside tonight as the Broncos finally get to make their first selection in the 2019 NFL draft.
The mock drafts are complete. Mel Kiper’s hair has been welded into place. And still there are more questions than answers for the Broncos heading into the frenzy that is draft night. Ryan O’Halloran does his best to provide some clarity with the franchise on the clock.

Song of the Day
Song: “Wicked Game”
Artist: Chris Isaak
Sounds like: As self-indulgent NSFW videos go, this one is an absolute all-timer. The song itself is a lovely slow jam — a perfectly good love song featured in a multitude of movies, television shows and commercials. As for the video… GOOD GOD. There’s an argument to be made that multiple adults should be prosecuted for failing to keep this from my 10-year-old eyes.
