OMG IT IS ALMOST HERE !!!!!!
Dinner RSVP is all wrapped up –
For those of you who are arriving before Friday ..Thursday night , there is going to be a cocktail party from 5-7 , at a bar within walking distance from the hotel . Great time to catch up with old friends and maybe meet a few new ones .
Friday day ~ I can direct you to some of the very best things about Colorado and Denver . Red Rocks ( breathtaking ) ..Boulder ( serene ) Garden of The Gods ( ancient ) Best Place to Attach a Motor to yourself and a Parachute to Your Back and Fly Like A Bird ( ? ) Art Museum ( one of the best ) Zoo , Museum , IMAX ~ all in one place ( trifecta ! )
Friday Night ~ Our hotel does not have a bar , so one of the Bunker Goddesses will be hosting a small cocktail party on the roof and we have overflow ability with the hotel right next door that has a full bar and restaurant . You can’t swing a dead cat and not hit a place to have a burger , a slice , a fancy dinner . The 16th Street Mall is our oyster . I am going to reserve some bowling lanes and instead of reserving any space for food and cocktails , we are going to just see how many people want to go to Lucky Strike and claim a room . I still think that Tracks http://www.tracksdenver.com/ is the best gay bar in town and the dancing is awesome .
Saturday day ~ ( see Friday day ^^ )
Saturday Night ~ 6pm . The Magic Happens .
Sunday ~ There is a great place that is just a block or so away from the hotel . Great brunch , live music , and hair of the dog .
A few things to keep in mind for those of you who will be here for the first time ~
From the fabulous Denver International Airport ( and alien sub station ) there is a train that goes RIGHT downtown to Union Station . Please see link.
Also great info on the light rail . If you are staying downtown , this is the way to go .
We really are one mile closer to the sun here in D-Town …don’t forget to wear sunscreen
DRINK WATER , LOTS OF WATER , MORE WATER and then drink another glass of WATER
Less oxygen here …keep that in mind if you would like me to organize a hike . The Boulder Flatirons are beautiful DayHike and there is a wonderful place in the middle of Denver called The Rocky Mountain Arsenal where you can take a nice long walk and see deer and buffalo , bald eagles , hawks , and a view of the Front Range that will take your breath away RockyMountainArsenal
If you do not want to stay at the hotel and would rather do the Airbnb route , some neighborhoods that are just a hop , skip , and a jump away from downtown Denver are Baker , Capital Hill , The Highlands ( NOT not be confused with Higlands Ranch …for the reals ) HiLow & City Park . Airbnb If you have any questions about the locale , feel free to ask me
And oh yeah ..Marijuana is legal here !!! We have both medicinal and recreational . However , your out of state medicinal cards will not be valid here . I have applied for a Medical card however the state is a little backed up . I do not anticipate a problem .Here is a guide to dispensaries in downtown Denver EasyGuide
