Downtown Denver is a pretty cool place. It reminded me a little bit of our 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica, but with less large retail chains and more offices nearby. It was always be pretty busy, especially during lunch and dinner. We decided to take a stroll and explore the street a bit before we found dinner.
Here’s another cow from the cowparade.
Last April, my work brought me out to Denver, Colorado. Jon had a few days off, so we decided to extend the trip and make it a vacation. Flying in only took 2 hours and I must say… the Denver airport was really beautiful. I didn’t take any pictures (Updated 1/9/14 – I guess I did take a picture! Check it out here), but if you’ve been there you’ll know what I mean. It was bright, airy, and felt really fresh. We quickly got our luggage and jumped onto the bus. About 30 minutes later we got off at the Market Street Station and waited for the 16th Street Free Mallride. This 1.5 mile shuttle was comfortable, clean, ran every 30 minutes, and on top of that it was free. We really need to get some of these shuttles back in Los Angeles. After settling into the hotel (which was only a 5 minute ride on the shuttle), we headed off to find us some dinner. After Yelping, we decided to eat at Sam’s No. 3. The restaurant was big, with lots of counter seating, booths, tables and even had a sports bar towards the back.
Fried Cheese Curds – They were so good. It was like eating mini mozzarella sticks but with a cheesier flavor. Plus I loved the extra chewy texture the curds had. Paired with marinara, it was delicious.
