Upstairs Circus

Upstairs Circus Sign

During the winter months it can be difficult to find unique and engaging venues and being in our business, we have nearly seen it all.  

Upstairs Circus is a venue unlike any other in the Denver area, we adore catering events there as the crowd always leaves with meaningful experience.  With another location coming soon to The Denver Tec Center, Upstairs Circus will be able to bring their exciting brand to the south part of town too!

Aside from being a cool venue in Lodo, Upstairs Circus specializes in leading projects and crafts that any adult would proudly display.

 Check out their craft menu here!

Foods for Luck in the 
New Year

Let's start with the bubbles...

Eat twelve grapes at midnight. The Spanish and Portuguese eat twelve grapes as the clock chimes twelve times for midnight, to symbolize the twelve months of the new year. Incidentally, eating grapes this quickly is not as easy as it may sound.

Seek out ring-shaped food for breakfast. Consider bagels or doughnuts for breakfast, which represent not only carb deliciousness, but also the year coming full circle.

Lots of people consider pork to be the luckiest of all foods to eat on New Year's Day. Why? Pigs are rotund, which represents prosperity (not, as it turns out, weight gain). They also "root forward" with their noses, which is supposed to symbolize progress. You can choose to eat your lucky pig any which way, including ham, sausage, whole roasted suckling pig, ham hocks, bacon, pancetta...

Bacon Dates

In Greece, when the new year turns, a pomegranate is smashed on the floor in front of the door to break it open and reveal seeds symbolizing prosperity and good fortune. The more seeds, the more luck.

Fish are lucky in three ways: their scales resemble coins, they travel in schools, which represents prosperity, and they swim forward, symbolizing progress. This option has the added benefit of complying with whatever New Year's dietary resolutions you've likely made.

In Japan, long buckwheat noodles symbolize long life, and are therefore lucky-but only if you eat them without chewing or breaking them. So get your slurping technique down.

Dry Soba

  • Greens! They resemble, what else? Paper money, and who doesn't want more money next year? Everything from cabbage to kale to your Mesclun salad mix applies here.
      Hoppin' John.
     This dish of black-eyed peas and rice is customary for New Year's Day in the American south, where black-eyed peas are considered auspicious based on their resemblance to coins.

  • Bake a coin into a ring shaped cake.  Whoever finds the coin gets a year of good luck! 

    NYE Bundt Cake

    And finally, stay away from foods like lobster, it is a bad idea because they move backwards and could therefore lead to setbacks. Chicken is also discouraged because the bird scratches backwards, which could cause regret or dwelling on the past. Another theory warns against eating any winged fowl because good luck could fly away.

    "We are thrilled with Serendipity Catering and highly recommend their services! They provided appetizers, a buffet, and desserts for our wedding this September. From day one the service was outstanding. They were very flexible and extremely responsive (over email and phone) and accommodated every one of our custom requests. During our two walk-thru meetings they were super helpful and offered a lot of tips around the timeline and set-up. On the day of the wedding their servers went above and beyond for our guests and we got a lot of compliments about the staff.

    The food was AMAZING and we continue to hear about it from our guests. Every item on the buffet was delicious, especially the chicken and beef dishes, which so often get dried out and bland in such a quantity. It felt more like the meals were prepared for a small dinner, not 150 people! They prepared a large variety of vegetables for our vegan and vegetarian guests, and their quinoa stuffed peppers were highly praised. I'm just sad I didn't get a chance to try everything!! During our cocktail hour I tried one of the reuben finger sandwiches (my husband's  special request) and it was unbelievably good. The beef in marsala sauce was sublime!

    Serendipity has an amazing pastry chef who made an assortment of two bite desserts (mini tartes) and I was blown away by how perfect (and beautiful) they were. A+++++++++++++!

    Thanks so much to Jennifer, Kelly, Adriana and the amazing team of servers! You all contributed to the best day of our lives!!"
