With all of the friends we’ve had in town, it’s allowed me to take them to some of my favorite places in Denver. I love this city. It’s got it’s junk, but it’s beautiful and to walk downtown is a great experience.
Mike Shipp came into town a couple of weeks ago and we hit the Denver Art Museum – DAM as it is affectionately called. Of course, Mike and I both being former youth workers had to make our little junior jokes using DAM whenever we could. This is the DAM coffee shop. This is the DAM museum shop. For some reason, this never gets old.
I love going to the art museum. Unfortunately, I am the only one in my family that enjoys going to the art museum. I am going to risk taking the kids one day. Not sure when. Tomorrow I’m going to take/drag Zack to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.
The Wynkoop Brewery is downtown and great place to eat. It’s a micro-brewery so you do the math from there. Here’s Caydo climbing the ape. Upstairs is a billiards room with about 20 pool tables, a few shuffle boards, dart boards and of course a bar. Downstairs is an improv comedy club.
And finally last Saturday we hit the St. Patty’s Day parade. We took the train downtown and quickly learned that Denver has the largest St. Patty’s Parade this side of the Mississippi. At least that’s what the paper said and after experiencing all the people downtown – I believe it. Great day but very, very crowded and very, very green.
Just a few reasons why I love this city.
