Out and about in Denver

We were headed to Sassafras (located just near Mile High Stadium) but realized it was Broncos game day so rerouted to Jezebel’s Southern Bistro and Bar to experience this delightful surprise.  I have to say this is my first time to be served in a personal sized cast iron skillet and it was wonderful.  This…

Boulder and Brews

After our hike up in Nederland, we picked up Frank in Boulder and check out the new Avery Brewing Company.  I love Frank’s house, especially his heated pool and his dog Hazel (she appreciates the pool as well).  He offered to share his local beer collection too!  After one post hike beer and collecting all…

The Leadville Experience

   City on a Hill Coffee Roastery and Cafe Bakery was a great coffee shop.  I can’t officially say I loved their coffee, because I opted for the delicious hot chocolate made with silky smooth steamed milk and whipped cream.  Paul can verify that they make a mean Cafe au lait.    We could spend…

Sassafras 

This quaint cafe is tucked in the neighborhood of Northwest Highland- Denver and is a wonderful breaky spot!  We started with a homemade biscuit n mushroom gravy drizzling it with their homemade hot sauce and jalapeno pepper jelly.  I chose the Fried Green Tomato Benedict–the usual option when I can find it–with a side of cheddar…

A “Strange Brewery” and an “Epic” one

I really enjoyed hanging out at this cozy brewery.  They had a few great beers that I would have liked to take with me but only left with a Cherry Kriek bomber.  Less is more:) Checked a bag to get one of these sweet delicious babies back home with me I first tried Epic in Salt Lake City…

A Haunted House

This 70’s Cold Case that happened (on my birthday…eeek) over 40 years ago made the Lumber Baron Inn what it is today. I stayed in the eerie basement in the “Innkeepers Suite”. The Sunday night I stayed happened to be the Murder Mystery Dinner evening. Just taking a tour of the place before everyone arrives Unfortunately, I…

LoHi

This will hopefully be my near future neighborhood! Rootdown:  my favorite restaurant in Denver so far Maci Cafe, this small Italian gem, is authentically Euro!  I felt like I stepped off the streets of LoHi right into Italy.  They have the perfect espressos (Italian style- short and strong!) with the perfect natural crema and the…
