    Denver - August 23 - 26...what's going on?

    We are heading to Denver to drop my daughter off at DU and have from Friday 8/23 - Sunday 8/25th available for being tourists. Anything in town happening that weekend? Any events in the surrounding area that we should look into? We haven't booked any accommodations yet so we have some flexibility.

    Highly Suspect at the new Mission Ballroom on the 24th if you are into them. Reggae on the Rocks would be better but longer.

    Reggae on the Rocks is the shit. Do it.

    A dude points out that white people have dreads (which yeah, its a bit appropriative of a historically exploited culture) -- and you get defensive. What a lil white snowflake you are.

    ^^^ check the park site, they were paving in July and back ups were a nightmare. Estes is nice to visit but dear god the tourons. Prepare yourself. Golden Gate St Park is a great place close to city and a lot of good hiking. Clear Creek Canyon park if hot, new trails long the river and can hike up in the draws. Eldorado Canyon St park for day hikes.

    Thank god Rockies out of town or I would recommend you go watch them loose. Make sure you hit a pot shop, $1 bet there is a Texas tag in the lot. Not much of a Dtown guy so no help there, heard the mint is worth some time but I have never been. Broadway area has some cool spots.

    If you want to hook up for a beer, shoot a pm. Im north of Denver.

    Hawk has some good advice there. I am around too, would gladly meet for a hike or beer or whatever.

    I'm totally listening to an old show. For Danno. This tape is so dusty.

    All acoustic at the Flood Zone 9/30/1992, Set II.

    Highlights include:
    Angel from Montgomery;
    Me & Julio;
    Exodus;
    Cry Freedom.

    Bonus some Granny with Phish and Warehouse.

    Make the best of what's around, eh? Turns out, not where, but who you're with (and what you think) that really matters.

    Denver - August 23 - 26...what's going on?

    Thanks hawk and dan. We arenít planning on renting a car so public transport limits where we will go.

    Being tourists, RMNP is on the list and I understand it will be a crowded shit show within a 1/2 mile of the road.

    Iíll reach out about beers later in the week.

    Well, if you want to cruise around Boulder or go for a hike here, you could ride public to Boulder (from downtown Denver it's pretty easy, but if you're down at DU it is a little more difficult) and I could pick you up from the park and ride and ferry you around. Heck, could even lend you my car for the day assuming we can work out logistics.

    In Denver and Golden that weekend is Colorado Classic bicycle race. This year is womenís racing only, but Iíve always enjoyed these events. Also consider the da Vinci exhibit at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. It is fantastic.

    As said, hiking from Denver without a car is tough logistically. Maybe call one if the airport to mountain shuttle services and see if they will pick you up, drop you off at a trailhead and pick you up on the way back to the airport. I have had luck with ďHome JamesĒ picking me up off the official route in the past. They could drop you at continental divide trail on Berthoud Pass. Herman and Dry gulches are two trail heads right off I 70 on the way to Summit County if you ride with a Summit or Eagle County transport service.

    Happy travels!

    Senor Burritos on 1st Ave and Broadway grab a Westword while eating a glorious smothered chile relleno burrito and wing it from there.

    We stayed in Speer last year but have a place in Platt Park this year. Itís a 10 minute walk to the train so accessibility to Union Station should be pretty easy.

    Never had a Senor Burritos, but El Taco De Mexico also has a delicious chile relleno burrito.

    Great. Now I'm hungry for relleno burritos.

    If you like funky beers, Black Project is very very good. I was also impressed with Alternation last time I was in there, esp compared to first go. Maria's Empanadas is also a local favorite. If you want to spend some cash and enjoy it, Sushi Den.

    Tokyo Premium Bakery is the tits.

    And keep in mind the da Vinci exhibit ends August 25th. Also - it's likely to be a shitshow on that final weekend.

    Agreed. I've gone a number of years. Go early to a place along 17th st, get brunch with a bottomless mimosa outside, get smashed and watch women in lycra who are faster than you'll ever be.
